Elizabeth Harvest is a 2018 sci-fi thriller film written and directed by Sebastian Guiterrez, starring Abbey Lee as the title character.

New bride Elizabeth has just settled in with her husband, Dr. Henry Kellenberg, who lets her explore every room in the house except for the basement. One day, while he is away, she - after having tired of the entertainment provided - decided to investigate the basement anyway where she finds storage containers with women identical to herself. Her disobedience leads to her husband murdering her...

Weeks later, a new bride - also named Elizabeth - arrives home with her husband after their wedding, and she is given the same rules to follow. However, when her curiosity gets the better of her, she has to do whatever it takes to uncover the truth once and for all.
