Passive Elliot loses his job at the worst possible time: he is about to get married, his girlfriend is pregnant, and he is responsible for his mentally challenged brother and aging father. When his cell phone rings and a cheerful voice offers him the opportunity to take on a variety of increasing challenges for increasing payments, Elliot thinks this is the answer to his problems. Of course, we know better.
One of the finds of this year's Horrorthon, thanks to Catfreeek! There is a definite streak of black humor, the challenges ramp sharply in intensity and seriousness, and Elliot's responses to the challenges ring true. Not a dull moment throughout. I think everyone on the blog should at least consider checking it out!
