Meatball Assassino is a short film prequel to the 2012 short Mislabeled.

Plot synopsis

Two opposing and fighting drug dealing families meet in an attempt to make peace, only to find that one of them isn't who they say they are.



  • This film is a prequel to the short Mislabeled (2012). Both films share the character of Vinny and his love of cocaine. The events of this film take place four months prior to the events in Mislabeled.
  • While not elaborated on in the film, the reason Bruto goes by the name "Vinny" is because of Vinnie Sportien, who was a family friend and business partner during the 80's and 90's. Bruto looked up to Vinnie, going as far as telling others to call him Vinny, and said he wanted to follow in his footsteps.

Additional Backstory

  • Olivia Castleton is not the female assassin's real name but a cover created to get close to the Colombo family. The individual she was hired by did not give her enough information to easily identify which member of the family was Bruto/Vinny.
  • The initial hit on Bruto/Vinny was put out by Don Spreezy a few months prior.
