Looking like a mix between the worst kind of fever dream and a colorful kind of vomit you'd expect after eating way too much fruity pebbles, Elliot at the very least, promises to stimulate us visually to some capacity. So on those grounds alone, we are definitely looking forward to both watching and reviewing this for you all very soon. Here's a more official description of what the film's content has in store for us:


"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"

Inspired by different spiders, the movie is a social commentary on the nature of existence in a world saturated with social media and new technologies. Elliot is the first feature length film from Dreams For Dead Cats Productions, a DIY collaborative production team based in San Francisco.


The world premiere for ELLIOT will be on Thursday, October 5th at The Roxie Theater in San Francisco! Screening is from 7pm-9pm with a cast & crew Q&A after the movie. Buy your tickets HERE
