Eloise Review – Another horror movie…or is it?
Jacob Martin (Chace Crawford) who is estranged from his father finds out that he had since passed away leaving a mass fortune with Jacob being the only beneficiary. The catch is for Jacob to provide his deceased ‘aunt’s’ death certificate which is filed at a mental asylum, Eloise that was burned down almost thirty (30) years ago. After failing to get the document in the ‘right way’ and not having patience to inherit the wealth, Jacob decides to obtain death certificate by breaking into the facility with the help of his childhood friend, Dell (Brandon T. Jackson). Jacob also gets an extra hand by convincing Scott (P.J. Byrne) along with his sister, Pia (Eliza Dushku) whose mother used to work as a nurse at the facility to join them. Just as Jacob gets his hands on the precious paper, all hell breaks loose as Eloise unleash a deadly dark secret that happened there before Jacob was born. Can they get out alive or end up being part of the deadly dark secret all over again?
With such an interesting premise, this movie fell flat from the word go.
The storyline is simply cringe worthy and you might find yourself shaking your
head in disbelief more than once. Luckily I managed to control my annoyed
emotions or else, I would have yelled a few times trying to stop the stupid
kids more making one mistake after another. Provided with quite a talented
cast, the Director failed to make use of their good acting skills but instead
just let it go to waste. Tsk tsk…the camerawork was also a pain in butt with
cheap shots trying but fail to achieve its target to scare the audience.

Give this a crap miss and save your hard earned money. Spend your precious time to watch some other movie instead. You have been warned.
