Just in case you were in doubt, this movie is indeed about an elevator.
(minor spoilage warning)
There really isn't much to say about this movie, it speaks for itself. To give you some examples of the thought and effort that went into Der Lift, the slogan of the elevator company is "Our Lifts Go Up And Down". The 'horror' part of the movie involves things like: people get into the elevator, the doors close, it goes up a floor, the doors open, the people are dead on the floor, ominous music plays. The climax of the movie hinges on the idea that evil sentient goo-dripping microchips ("chips!") can be killed (or something) with a few shots from a revolver. I feel obliged to mention that the person who shoots the "chips!" does so while standing inside the evil elevator, but despite the fact that the elevator killed people inside it, it is somehow incapable of doing so right then.
Budding movie-makers should watch this as proof that you can make a movie without money or ideas. Bad movie buffs should watch this to say that they've watched it (this is my excuse). NOBODY ELSE should watch this movie.
