Killer Robots, Of Course.

This 5 minute trailer for Ataque de Panico (Panic Attack) is Uruguayan director Fede Alvarez's version of an attack on earth. Unlike American director Michael Bay's version, Transformers, this one looks like it's NOT going to suck worse than hammering a nail through my penis.

Maybe a bad choice with the 28 Days Later soundtrack music for the trailer, but it definitely gives it the identical eerie feeling.

Check out the 2:10 mark: a little homage to Sergei Eisenstein's "Battleship Potemkin" and the Odessa steps sequence, with the baby stroller recklessly descending the stairs amidst the chaos. This scene was Eisenstein's way of subliminally demonstrating against Russia's mistreatment of its peoples during those times. Too complicated for you? Haha, I hit you with some knowledge suckah! Where all my film majors at?
