    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.

What a wonderful little (and grande) film this is. It really drags you in and takes you down to a magically dark nostalgia trip through 80's90's fantasy, scifi and horror. The beautifully designed organic sets, costumes and magnificent use of colors create such a bizarre and magical mood and the graininess adds to the nostalgia.

It is hard to compare to anything and at the same time reminds one of so much. Movies like Gandahar, Alien, Robot Holocaust, Manborg, Conquest, The Dark Crystal, Actium Maximus, Were are the Strange, Baron against the Demons and so forth. And yet it is none of those movies but a unique little masterpiece with some Giger and Lovecraft vibes thrown in.

I came across it here on imdb and was thrilled to find out the dvd was availiable on the website of the creators. It came with a set of Chroma Depth 3D glasses which made a second viewing (watched the first time without the glasses) even more interesting as it really works. As the title says it really felt like receiving an awesome new toy when I was a kid. I really look forward to any new stuff these guys come up with.
