The story of Super Mario is actually pretty brutal: two brothers mount a last-ditch all-action raid on a murderous dictator, smashing all before them to recover their own unelected matriach. Hopeless, meaningless, violent.
Mario Warfare is a new web-series dedicated to exactly that idea. It's a horrifically violent live-action reimagining of the timeless video game, in which all hope is lost and war is very real.
It's currently gathering funds on Kickstarter for a full 90-minute film, but the first 11-minute episode is enough to tell this isn't just any Mario film.
The team behind it are gathering funds now - click through if you want to help.
