Storyline

'Dave Made A Maze' re-imagines classic 80's adventure films with a modern comedic edge and a higher body count. Dave, an artist who has yet to complete anything significant in his career, builds a fort in his living room out of pure frustration, only to wind up trapped by the fantastical pitfalls, booby traps, and critters of his own creation. Ignoring his warnings, Dave's girlfriend Annie leads a band of oddball explorers on a rescue mission. The handmade fantasy world comes to life with puppetry, stop-motion animation, and in-camera optical illusions, re-igniting the tactile sense of wonder from the movies of our childhoods.

Trivia

The studio had only enough space for two rooms of the maze to be built at any one time. While one was being filmed the other would be built for the next scene to be shot. According to the producer, the average lifespan of a room was four hours. See more »

Quotes

Dave: I wasn't striving for anything. I just wanted to make something. And I can't sit on my couch and watch t.v. or think that the internet is going to inspire me because I'm f***ing thirty years old. And my parents are still giving me money. And I bore the s**t out of them. And I work jobs that I hate that I have to beg to get. Do you know what it means to be broke? It means that you are broken. That you don't work.

Wildly Imaginative
5 February 2019 | by umimelectricSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed the original concept and seemingly limitless imagination of this film. The maze is so large and vast, and a lot of careful planning, time and care went into developing it. It seems like each and every room the characters explored, something new and wonderful would occur. B-team cast does an overall good enough job for a story like this, and there are surprisingly few cringey moments among many great ones. A mature comedy for those young at heart.
