Trivia

The film is shot on location in the real Eloise Insane Asylum, which used to be one of the largest mental institutions in the world. It began as one building in Westland, Michigan in 1832, before rapidly growing into a 78-building complex, complete with its own fire and police departments, train station, post office and farms. The asylum finally closed in 1982, and has since been used as many things such as a daycare center, a homeless shelter, and a business office. Many of the outlying buildings such as the bakery, firehouse, tavern, and powerhouse are in ruins beyond repair. See more »

Goofs

When Jacob enters his fathers house after his funeral he finds the knife his father took his own life with. Both the knife and the carpet in the room where the death happened are covered in fresh blood. Since the funeral took place at least one, possibly more days after his fathers death there neither wouldn't be fresh blood stains nor the knife itself. It'd be a crime scene and therefore totally occupied by the police. See more »

Not a great horror film, even by low budget standards.
31 January 2017 | by jeremy-david-kuehnauSee all my reviews

Eloise is a movie based on a real world location in Michigan, more specifically a closed sanitarium that was renowned for it's terrible medical practices.

The movie centers around a son who discovers he has the opportunity to inherent his Father's estate, which comes along with a hefty amount of money.

But there's a catch, he needs to get his Mother's death certificate. Everything seems easy enough until he discovers that his Mother's death certificate was actually moved to a different location and in order to get it, he would need to file go through a lengthy (and expensive) legal process.

So instead of going through the legal system and getting the paper work how he should (legally), he decides to break into the now defunct sanitarium with a friend.

I am not a lawyer, but the entire concept that the movie is focused on seems kind of sketchy, you'd think all of this would have been handled already. And why would their son need to go to court to get a copy of his Mother's death certificate?

Besides being riddled full of weird plot holes, at first glance the movie appears to be your generic haunted sanitarium , but it starts to get really goofy as the film goes on. Frankly, I feel the movie would have been much better if it had went for the generic spooky ghost film instead of what they went with.

The acting and cinematography are fine for what it is; I have no complaints. The writing is pretty shaky and the plot of the movie doesn't really make a whole lot of sense.

To be honest, I wouldn't even rent this from a RedBox. If it came on NetFlix or Hulu or something and you got some time to burn (the movie isn't even 2 hours), then go for it, but I can't recommend spending actual money to see this film.
