EIGHT LEGGED FREAKS
At the 1998 Telluride Film Festival,
New Zealand-born ELLORY ELKAYEM (Director / Screenplay / Story) showcased
his writing, producing and directing skills with his short film Larger Than
Life, about a spider that grows to gigantic size and terrorizes a woman in
her home. When executive producer Roland Emmerich saw the short, he and Dean
Devlin approached the young director and teamed him with scribe Jesse Alexander
to write and develop the script that became Eight Legged Freaks.
Additionally, Elkayem's Larger
Than Life also won Best Short at the Sweden Fantastic Film Festival, and his
2001 science-fiction telefilm They Nest won the Audience Award at the
GĂ©rardmer Film Festival.
