101 Films To Release Fantasy Sci-Fi Comedy LINOLEUM


Grammy-nominated stand-up comedian Jim Gaffigan plays a TV show host who endeavours to fulfil his childhood dream of becoming an astronaut, but a series of bizarre events make him begin to question his own reality in Linoleum.

This original, thought-provoking, and hugely entertaining feature from one-to-watch writer-director Colin West (Ghost Walker), garnered critical acclaim at SXSW and London Film Festival and is now set for its UK digital release on 17th April 2023 from 101 Films.

Cameron Edwin (Gaffigan) always dreamed of becoming an astronaut, but his career path led him to television instead… as the host of a kid’s science programme, Above & Beyond. When the network announces it will move the failing show to a late-night slot, it’s clear that the glory days are well and truly over… and to add to Cameron’s woes, his marriage to Erin (Rhea Seehorn) is on the rocks.

Then a space satellite mysteriously lands in his backyard… triggering a full-blown midlife crisis, that sees him obsessively building a rocket in his garage, in an attempt to make his dreams come true.

Spending all his time on his fixation, his relationship with his wife and his daughter (Katelyn Nacon) becomes more and more strained as surreal events unfold around him – a doppelgänger moves into the house next door, a car falls from the sky and a strange teenager tries to befriend him.

As Cameron starts to consider whether these things are connected, he begins to call into question everything he’s ever known. Will his life ever be the same again?

Mixing fantasy, science-fiction and comedy, along with the surreal and the seeming banality of everyday existence, Linoleum promises a stellar journey like no other.

This fantastical, life-affirming, magical mystery rocket ride will stay with you long after lift-off.

I love practical effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Yakuza Zero and Mafia III.
