It's this five-minute video from Uruguayan commercial director Fede Alvarez, "Ataque de panico!" (Panic Attack), in which giant freaking robots invade Montevideo.

The video so impressed Sam Raimi that his Ghost House Pictures has made a deal with Alvarez to direct a movie based on the short, Variety reports. Kinda like District 9 director Neill Blomkamp, whose sci-fi movie grew out of a video short.

The short, which Alvarez produced through his commercial production house, cost less than $500! You can watch it below.
