Storyline

Jim is a shy, withdrawn loner, pervert, and virgin. Lana is a friendly and outgoing born again Christian who has renounced her promiscuous drug filled past. They have never met until they step into an elevator together one day. The elevator gets stuck between floors, and they start to get to know each other. A building maintenance man assures them over the elevator's emergency intercom that an elevator repairman is on the way to let them back into their lives. Hours, days, weeks, and months pass, and no repairmen ever show up. Jim and Lana spend their days screaming into the intercom trying to get the maintenance guy to answer again. He doesn't. Starvation is not a problem for them, as Lana entered the elevator with a bag full of groceries which is mysteriously found to be filled with fresh food every morning. After enough time passes, Jim gives up hope of escape and resigns himself to building a new life in the elevator with who he sees as his first girlfriend. Lana on the other hand...

Awful.
25 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is trying way too hard to be Eraserhead,as much as I'm sure the director would deny it.

It has some mildly amusing moments, but is mostly weird and disturbing for the sake of being weird and disturbing,which we've all seen a million times before. Yawn. The acting is beyond terrible, it's boring, and unoriginal.

The movie is as low budget as it can get, this is understandable, but they could have at least tried to do something interesting with the way it looks, considering how horrible the content of the movie was.

Overall, I'd say this is akin to a really bad student film. So if you like really bad student films with heaps of contrived strangeness, then this is the movie for you.
