"Ataque de Panico!" (Panic Attack)

It only took $300…

And Fede Alvarez landed himself a Hollywood movie deal, a viral video, and $30 million. Talk about inspiration, nothing can be more inspiring than Fede’s road to success. A commercial director from Uruguay, Alvarez caught the eye of esteemed film maker Sam Raimi. Raimis Ghost House Pictures has agreed to develop and direct Alvarez’s original science fiction style project. Drawing comparisons to District 9, Alvarez’s movie entitled “Ataque de Panico!” (Panic Attack) has created a buzz amongst the YouTube crowd already reaching over 1.5 million views. After becoming viral in such a short span of time Alvarez claims his email was full from directors and Hollywood types trying to nab his film. The video itself uses the heart pulsing soundtrack from 28 Days Later to build up its anticipation of the large invasion brewing and is a nice combination of influences. This just goes to show you, sometimes it just boils down to talent! Now watch the video for yourself, and be sure to tell us what you think!
