Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 0% (Critics) / 14% (Audience)
Directed By: Robert Legato
Written By: Christopher Borrelli
Starring: Chace Crawford, Eliza Dushku, Brandon T. Jackson and Robert Patrick
Studio: Vinson Films

The Good:
The scenes where Eliza Dushku’s character was turned into a pincushion for a sadistic nurse’s surgical needles were creepy but that was probably more about my own issues with needles than what was actually put onscreen.

The Bad:
The characters in this movie were either wholly unlikable or so devoid of any interesting characterization that they weren’t even worth caring about regardless of what horrors befell them.
This film also was full of so many recycled ideas and concepts from other horror films. If you have ever watched any haunted house movie or pretty much any of the evil spirit dominated films of the past few years than you were prepared for every thing that happened in this movie.

The Ugly:
So this haunted hospital has the power to make people see things, transport people back and forth in time and ll sorts of other hocus-pocus yet it needed to have one of the characters stupidly dose himself with LSD by mistake in order to manipulate him to his death? And yes that may sound dumb but it was even worse on film.

Final Verdict: ELOISE is basically scene after scene of recycled concepts that were done better in every movie that the folks behind this one were “inspired” by. Not worth the time that I wasted watching it.

Grade: D-
