This will probably get your heart racing.

Today’s pick for our Halloween Countdown is a bit different than the others we’ve featured.  Five Minutes, directed by Maximilian Niemann in 2014, is a film wrapped up in a video game format.  A choose your own destiny kind of thing.

After being injured during a fight with a zombie, John isn’t sure whether he is infected or not. Only FIVE MINUTES remain for John to figure out his fate and protect the life of his daughter Mia who is with him in the apartment.

Starring Kieran Bew and Hannah Chin, Five Minutes is action-packed and features incredible special effects.  The film/game motivates the viewer/player to do well and also inspires a sense of curiosity of what will happen if you lose the game…

Five Minutes is rated 18 and up, so if you’re underage…absolutely nothing will stop you from playing because the makers rely on the honor system to weed out the younguns.
