If you want to waste your time, very very badly! THIS is the right movie to do it!!


I am baffled quite honestly. I didn't think it was particularly a bad movie; the cast did a good job, especially Dushku, who always delivers. The plot,, well, I did understand it, although that "jumping-from-era-to-era" is something that I do hate in horror movies. I feel like when you don't have a strong enough story or a working script to make things understood by subtle exposition, ghosts and going through the haunted place, you take the characters literally to the past. And when you mix the past and the now.. well, it's usually confusing as f*ck. And maybe I missed something, but Dell just disappeared. I don't recall him killed or anything or maybe I was so bored I missed it. Also, the mother of the siblings, the nurse.. she just didn't come home from work? They didn't search her or anything? Patrick's character most likely killed her because she took the baby away. But when Jacob was locked up in the sanatorium in the end, that meant that Jacob was always there, because he "came back" and was pronounces death at birth?? Was the nurse still missing? Oh god, my head hurts.. SO, because all of this bs, only 4/10. Liked the cast, liked the plot for the most part.. but.. come on, give me a break.


the most unrealistic acting I have ever seen. also very bad directing, bad sound, bad lighting, bad everything ! Casting was very bad too. the only interesting thing is some of the outdoor shots and you get to see something that is somewhere else so it got some kind of value, but aside from that, the movie totally suck.


"Eloise" is a film based on the actual Eloise Asylum located in Michigan. Eloise has quite a history and not all of it good.Jacob and Dell are pretty good friends, and when Jacob is advised of his father's death, he is also told by the attorney handling the estate that he is the sole inheritor of $1.2 million--providing he can get the actual death certificate of a former aunt who--you guessed it-- resided at Eloise. He tells Dell of his need and since Dell is also in dire need of cash (to the tune of $20,000) he agrees to help. They should have just waited for the state to declare his aunt officially dead.Along the way they encounter Eliza Dushku and her brother who apparently has a connection AND the blueprints to Eloise. They break in; getting out is the problem.I will not be as critical of this movie as most. I thought the story line was developed nicely (it did actually make sense), and the acting and directing was better than most movies of this genre. There was not an overuse of blood and gore and the director did manage to build some actual tension. That does not mean the movie is without its warts, because it did have plenty. Rated "R" for language, disturbing images, and some violence. This one is a toss-up.
