Every once in a while I come across a project so bizarre yet so tantalizing it demands attention. This is what happened when I found auteur Craig Jacobson’s relic from the past Elliot. The film is shot on VHS. The picture is grainy. The creatures are weird. The whole project feels like a forgotten film from the eighties. The twist is that the film is a brand new feature set to debut in 2016 from Dreams for Dead Cats Productions (the best name for a studio ever). Read about the film below and then visit their amazing website for more!
Filmmaker Craig Jacobson says the film is an existential sci-fi social commentary on the nature of identity in a world saturated with social media and new technologies.
The movie is inspired by different spiders and explores the struggle of one man grappling with his desires, the distrust of his own cognition, and the anxiety brought on by his external obligations.
