At a roadside diner, an aging ex-boxer (His field‘s Brian George) tells a friendly server (The School of Good and Evil‘s Rachel Bloom) a magical tale from his fighting past – featuring a very special fight between a monster radioactive Oatmeal and a steam powered one robot. No wonder that the sight of the menu item that gives this film its title makes him queasy: Steel cut oats.

io9 has already featured the work of filmmaker Harry Chaskin – check out his pandemic creation, Black and White Submarine History Here below-But Steel cut oats is much more ambitious; The filmmaker, who told io9 that it took six years to complete this “labor of love,” describes it as “a loose retelling of the golem tale from Eastern Europe… it’s also a love letter to Ray Harryhausen’s films that sticks with everyone.” Practical old-school effect you can imagine.” Payam Banifaz plays the boxer in the flashback scenes.

Plus: ruthless gangsters, weird science, sports nostalgia – and a surprisingly touching relationship between a hapless athlete (in live action) and a very expressive radioactive oatmeal monster (in stop motion).
