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.

User Reviews

 
But that James Urbaniak was pretty cool.
1 April 2019 | by dfranzen70See all my reviews

This quirky film is amazingly creative but suffers from a lagging middle part and boring leads. Dave, who never finishes anything, has built a maze made out of cardboard in the middle of his apartment. But this maze is like The TARDIS - way bigger on the inside - and the truth is that Dave can't find his way out. Can't just rip it down, either, as it's a part of him now. His girlfriend and a host of friends and acquaintances enter the maze in an effort to retrieve Dave. Might have worked better if it was more fantastical, but it incorporates real-word consequences into the plot. Definitely imaginative, though.
