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Jim is a shy, withdrawn loner, pervert, and virgin.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...

Strangely successful film
9 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yes, you can draw inferences to Eraserhead and also Tetsuo Iron Man when watching Elevator Movie. Considering the youth, budget, religious rebellion and insistence which put this film out, I liked it very much. This film will either draw you into its fringe fantasy of the disturbed, or you will hate it. Amazingly, at around 90 minutes, this powerfully simplistic movie doesn't drag, and you do empathize with the characters, if not the fetishistic trip. See it if you do like the aforementioned films, and appreciate it for taking the risks it does take, because that alone makes it an outrage to most. Don't gripe about the technical aspects of it, please....
