cut 1

Two men set out to make a movie. Their goal is to make a slasher movie that takes “realistic” to a whole new level. The friends cast a homeless man as their killer, not knowing that he takes killing very seriously.

‘Cut!’ was written by David Banks and David Rountree, both who played roles in the film. Rountree directed the film and played the role Travis. Banks played the role of the psychotic parolee, Lane. Seasoned actor Sam Scarber (Shocker) fills the role of homeless man/killer for hire.

Travis is not being completely honest with Lane. After being tormented by the murders he’s committed in the name of film, he finds out that Travis and the homeless man are actually partners and that they have faked everything.

‘Cut!’ is a little slow off the starting line but soon picks up speed to reveal a complex story and a story line unique to the slasher genre that will leave you questioning everything you’ve just seen.  It’s hard these days to find a movie with an original idea, but Rountree and Banks have created something we have never seen before.

If you’re looking for heavy gore, you won’t find it here. Rountree and Banks get there point across with minor practical FX.  ‘Cut!’ mixes found footage with stationary camera scenes to give the movie a live action feel. This indie horror is a slasher that you should see.
