Storyline

Elliot is a lonely maintenance worker inside a stark and mysterious power supply complex. His only interactions are with a supervisor named Face who communicates to Elliot via different video monitors and overhead speakers located throughout the facility. Sentries are always keeping a close eye on Elliot to make sure he stays on task. When Elliot does have a rare moment alone, he plugs into his pod and escapes into another world as an idealized version of himself. The more he explores this alternate universe, the more he desires it, and consequentially, the less he trusts his own reality. As his mind deteriorates from the stress of his job combined with his belief that an artificial world may actually exist, Elliot has no choice but to try and uncover the truth behind his identity before he no longer can.

A bold, insane and inventive SCI-FI horror.
24 January 2019 | by drawbunnySee all my reviews

Had the pleasure of seeing this on the big screen at the Deptford Cinema in London. Nothing could prepare me for the assault on the senses that ELLIOT turned out to be. A truly one of a kind art piece depicting a claustrophobic, dystopian and nightmarish future that was shot on videotape to give it the air of an otherworldly transmission.

I would compare this on one level as being like somebody spiking the punch bowl at a Doctor Who monster's party with LSD and on another a strong return to the dying art of splattery cyber punk with added Cronenbergian touches.

The film-makers worked truly hard on bringing this unique vision to life and it shows in every shot on screen.

It is a must for all those interested in the underground, transgressive and more avant-garde cinema. It will certainly be a love or hate title but those who do appreciate it will see that there is something truly stunning here. I look forward to seeing what Dreams for Dead Cats productions offer up next.
