'Ataque de Pánico!' (Panic Attack!)

A lot can happen in four minutes — and in four days.

Consider, for example, an unknown producer in Uruguay named Fede Alvarez, who spent about $300 to make the four-minute long movie (above) depicting a robot invasion of Montevideo, the capitol of Uruguay.

Alvarez told the BBC, "I uploaded 'Ataque de Pánico! on a Thursday and on Monday my inbox was totally full of emails from Hollywood studios."

Since being posted in early November the video has gone viral, currently approaching 2 million views, and has resulted in Alvarez signing a $30 million deal with Sam "Spiderman" Raimi's Ghost House Pictures to make a full-length sci-fi thriller.

THAT is one Hell of a great movie for $300. I've seen films with budgets in the millions that aren't anything like that good.
