Not sure if it's true?
15 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw the movie yesterday at the Beverly Center and had a pleasure of meeting the filmmakers for the Q&A session afterwards (I was told they will be there every weekend thorough their release and I highly recommend it).

This is not a big budget movie, which I expected was made for under $5 million, but I was stunned when the director answered the question "What was the budget?" by, we shot the whole film for around $50K. $50K?

For anyone that has ever been involved in any kind of production (like myself) will be hard to believe that this movie was shot for so little budget. Most short films are shot for more so I suspect that this might be their publicity stunt.

But regardless of the budget I feel that the movie gives something completely new and original and it kept me in the seat. I was entertained thorough and the movie grabbed me from the very beginning.

I would not compare it to "Shutter Island", in terms of budget it would not be fair even if this movie was made for $20 million, but in terms of the story and execution this movie can stand tall.
