EXCITED FOR SUNDAY! CUT! Getting Very Positive Reviews: http://geekhash.blogspot.com/2015/02/movie-review-cut.html http://www.abucketofcorn.com/2015/02/cut-2014.html http://lifeinla.com/entertainment/streams/movies/123-movies/18905/cut-to... The Independent Horror/Thriller genre is full of films that, let’s be honest, are subpar at best. There are the good, the so-so, and the just plain unwatchable. This is where Psycho Rock Productions' Cut! rises above the rest. The film recently won Best Director, Best Film, Best Actor, and Award of Merit for Audio at the 2014 Independent Film & Television Festival. The script, written by David Rountree and David Banks, is full of genuine twists that truly surprised me in a way that reminded me of the first time I watched The Usual Suspects. Every scene builds upon the other and when you get to the final frame it feels entirely earned. It keeps you engrossed as you watch the filmmakers slip further and further into depravity. And when you get to the whopper of an ending, you’ll want to go back and watch the film again to pick up on the subtle clues peppered throughout the film. _______________________ So many shocking moments in Cut! are done to make you question what is real and what is fake: They are making a movie…or are they? Are these actors or murderers? Do prostitutes deserve what they get? Who is the real bad guy? Can I sit through this movie again without feeling like a creepy voyeur myself? Will my nightmares ever go away? Cut! is definitely worth a watch and re-watch. Horror fans will be pleased with the experience. It is a suspenseful adrenaline rush _______________________ Twisted tale and most of all a horror induced thrill ride. Concept of a thriller/mystery yet mixed as a dark deep horror. CUT! was an amazing adrenaline thriller of a watch. It kept me on the edge of my seat until the very end. It's a deep and very psychological trip into the inner recesses of the dark mind and twisted soul of humanity. This is one of those films that make you think and gives you an experience of a tight unrelenting horror thriller that never lets up and only lingers long after it’s over Truly a film that stands out above and beyond so many films coming out.

Mandy Goldstein

The Sunday Q&A will be hosted by Syrus Yarborough - from THE REAL WORLD - BOSTON

Anthony Young

Damn tickets sold out didn't buy on time

David Crowther

Got my ticket. I'll be there!

Daniel Hadaway

I went out and watched CUT! last night with friends. An inspirational horror movie. Inspirational because David Rountree the man who wrote, directed, produced, and stars in the movie, just five short years ago was an acting student like many of us. Everyone should go out and see CUT! It will entertain and inspire. "Keep up the great work David."

Daniel Hadaway

I was wrong calling it a Horror movie, I believe it is a physiological thriller for the thinking man. Putting a label on Cut! does not do it Justices. Cut! is unlike any movie I have seen, a piece of art that you rarely find in theaters.

Richard "RB" Botto

Great post, Daniel! Thank you! Looking forward to seeing David's film today and hanging with all of you at the meetup tonight!

Kaye Kittrell

Congrats, David and Chriss for all the great reviews and feedback! Looking forward to meeting you today.

Steve Jacques

I am looking forward to it

Ryan Campbell

yeah!

Mandy Goldstein

REMINDER - The movie begins at 5PM sharp. Just an FYI, you don't want to miss the beginning! :-)

Brett Gustafson

The showing for 5 is sold out, will I still be able to attend the meetup?

Robin Chappell

Didn't see where to RSVP for just networking so show u p @ Pig?

Richard "RB" Botto

Yes. Just come to the Pig and Whistle. We will be there right after the panel (taking place after the film). Probably 7-7:15. See you all there!

Matt Chassin

What an amazing event. Sold out theatre, and an honor to be on a panel speaking with Stage 32 members. Meet up also was a huge success. Big thanks to The davids(Rountree and Banks), Chris Moir, RB, Shannon, and all of the stage 32 crew and espeipecially to all the stage 32 members who came out to support this wonderfully fun film. It was a priveledge and an honor meeting all of you, I hope to work with many of you in the future,.

David Rountree

The support tonight was overwhelming and we are all still at a loss for words. Thank you to everyone who came to either the movie or the meet-up. As Matt said above, thanks to RB, Amanda, Shannon, Joey, and the rest of the Stage 32 crew. I am truly in awe at such a wonderful community.

AJ Taylor

A very exciting evening, well done interesting movie, enjoyed meeting everybody. Thank you to everybody for their time and efforts.

Georgina Elizabeth Okon Imdb.me/georginaelizabethokon

Last night was amazing, Cut was phenomenal, very intelligent and deserving of every award and more. Congratulations to the cast/crew and a big thank you to Richard Botto and his Stage 32 team, David Rountree and his cast/crew for giving us this opportunity. I am truly encouraged

Richard "RB" Botto

I'm still feeling the buzz from last night. For starters, a great film beautifully realized by writer/director/gentleman, David Rountree. Terrific performances by David, David "Y&T" Banks, Chris Moir and Susan Lanier to name a few. The sold out crowd was riveted and engaged from start to finish. The Meetup was a lively affair attended by over 60 Stage 32 members. My thanks to everyone who showed and for all the kind and humbling words you shared with me and my staff regarding our efforts with the site. The support puts wind in our sails and is appreciated more than you could possibly know. If you live in the LA area, I urge you to head down to the Arena and see CUT! If you live outside of LA, the film will be available on DVD and On Demand February 24th. We will also have an announcement shortly on yet one more way you can view CUT! from the comfort of your own home. My thanks to David for not only hiring 30 Stage 32 members for CUT!, but for being such a selfless and ardent supporter of the platform. Your collaborative soul inspires many, my friend. Proud of you and to know you.

Richard "RB" Botto

I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Matt Chassin's role in all of this. Matt is doing one hell of a job promoting CUT! and getting the word of the film and David's accomplishments out there. Awesome work, Matt!

Christina Horgan

Thank you RB, not only is David BEST director I have ever had the pleasure to work for, his cast on CUT! are equally talented, and wonderful wonderful people I got the privilege of knowing quite well throughout the entire post production process, from the ADR stage to the final dub stage. That close relationship helped me learn about each character on the screen and off the screen, to help me design unique sound applied to each character as well as the scene. In turn, the actors were invited to the dub stage to learn how we transform their characters on the screen, and it was truly a great experience for all of us. Also, Matt Chassin ROCKS!!!! Matt has done such an amazing job promoting CUT! It was such a pleasure to meet Matt on Friday night at the Premiere, and I hope to see him again, as well as many of the rest of you here on this post throughout the week…. CUT! is one of those movies which you really have to watch again and again to learn all the little secret Easter eggs stuck in the movie… David is very fun that way. I also apologize for bailing on the Q&A panel and S32 mixer after last night's 5PM screening, I was truly looking forward to being there, however, the M.P.S.E. Golden Reel Awards were held last night and I had no idea I would be attending the Awards until Friday the 13th and Solange and I let David know that night. It was truly an unexpected last minute thing. Also, Solange Schwalbe, our Supervising Sound Editor on CUT!, and a long standing member of M.P.S.E., M.P.E.G. 700, A.M.P.A.S., and A.T.A.S. was also planning to sit in on the Q&A panel and attend the S32 mixer last night, but she learned at the last minute she would be presenting at the Golden Reels. We are sorry we missed out, and it sounds like we missed a great evening with our fellow Stage 32ers!!!

Matt Chassin

Thanks to Chriss and RB for the very kind words. As I said last night, marketing and promotion is easy when you have a great product, like CUT!, The great folks here at STAGE 32 make it even easier by the wonderful support shown for this amazing film. I wish all my projects were as easy, as good, and as much fun as this one!

Daniel Hadaway

I went to see Cut! again last night, to be honest it was unbelievable how much I missed the first time. Cut! is a well written, well thought out piece of art. If you blink, you will miss something. It was just as good the second time around. David Roundtree, David Banks and everyone who had a hand in Cut! made something very special.

Mandy Goldstein

Two more night two see Cut! in the theater! One of the great things about Cut! is David Rountree, David Banks, and a group of talented professionals, with the help of this platform created a well crafted movie. What that shows me is that anyone who is willing to work hard and dedicate themselves to their craft can truly make something SPECIAL!!! Go See Cut! And Support Your Local Film Makers and Stage 32!

David Rountree

Thank you Daniel. Such nice words. I truly appreciate you taking the time to check out the movie and share in our adventure.

David Banks

ABSOLUTELY OVERWHELMED WITH ALL THE AMAZING STAGE 32ERS THAT SHOWED UP AND SUPPORTED THE FILM! I met some really nice people I would have never had the chance to meet otherwise! Truly a passion project of long standing that has finally come to fruition by the amazing David Rountree. Feeling super blessed right about now! RB has really sparked and ignited something special with Stage 32!

Mandy Goldstein

Well said Mr. Banks. It has been such a pleasure to work with you on CUT! as well as be a part of such a terrific Stage 32 community.

Mandy Goldstein

CUT! has officially SOLD OUT it's final show in Los Angeles. We at Psycho Rock are very proud of what the movie has been able to accomplish and are thrilled to have been able to share with those who were able to check it out.

Richard "RB" Botto

Thank you, Mr. Banks! You were awesome in the film, brother. Deserving of every accolade that's been coming your way and, no doubt, numerous more to come. And thank you, Mandy. You've done incredible work with the film. I appreciate all the effort you put into the Stage 32 Meetup as well!

Mandy Goldstein

Thank you RB. Stage 32 is such a valuable asset to anyone in any position in this business and I hope that others will be able to utilize the sites resources as much as we have. I was happy to organize the meet-up and even more thrilled to support Stage 32.

Daniel Hadaway

This past week I had the good fortune of being invited by David Rountree to Cut!, and the events surrounding the opening. The experience was surreal, and the things I learned were priceless. Everyone I meet involved in this project, were so proud of it. Last night they had the wrap party and Psycho Rock Productions knows how to throw a party. A great night with great people. I want to sincerely thank David Rountree, and everyone who helped make this week so memorable.

David Rountree

Dallas James

Just got email confirmation that my very own personal copy of CUT! is on its way and will be hand delivered to my front door within days! I can't wait to see it on the giant 4K!

David Banks

Woohoo! Can't wait to see what you think Dallas!

David Rountree

That is terrific Dallas!

Antonio Carrasco

So bummed I missed this one!!!

Dallas James

Loved it! Excellent direction and awesomely acted. Thanks for shooting this in the style that you did. I truly appreciate the thriller aspects and the restraint from turning the piece into gore. P.S. Everybody loves Dee Wallace, the mere mention of her name brought a smile to my face; and seeing Gabrielle and Suze together was amazing. I'm going to watch it again this afternoon to get all of the bits I missed the first time. Excellent work!
