In the future, huge multi-tiered buildings act as the main human dwellings, with massive elevators bringing people from one section to the next. Luchino is a troublemaking girl on her way up to school one morning, as normal denizens of the building join her in the elevator. But she realises that trouble may be brewing when her unusual psychic power reveal to her that two of the men on the lift are psychotic killers, being transported to another prison level. When the power goes out, the prisoners escape, terrorizing the elevator with no way for the victims to escape. Japanese sci-fi thriller HELLEVATOR (aka THE BOTTLED FOOLS, GUSHA NO BINDUME) presents a paranoid and dystopian view of the future in the context of a claustrophobic horror story.
