*A Horror Movie Review
Haunted movies can sometimes be the best! Some movies give you a rundown of nothing but the now in the haunt. Others give you a backstory, sharing why the haunt even took place. Eloise, a movie about a haunted asylum, or the remains of one, gives you both. You know are given everything, bringing you - the viewer - full circle.
In Eloise, you're given a guy who is set to inherit 1.2 million dollars, before taxes. He's thrilled, even though he has to prove there are no other family members to stake claim on his fortune. He's given a mission, one that sends him to a place none have been known to return from. With the help of a few friends, he sets off to gain the proof he needs to become a millionaire!
The reasoning behind it all is a bit strange. Why would the beneficiary need to seek out proof that he's the only surviving relative for an inheritance? Isn't that something the attorney should have already known? I say all of that shoudl have been previously verified, making this movie moot, making Eloise insane and nonesense.
What I found upsetting with this movie was the fact that it didn't end the way I thought it should. There's a very important piece to this movie, that I understood, watching and thinking: This is going to be pretty decent; I like this. But I was left with confusion instead. Splendid confusion but confusion nonetheless. I couldn't figure one bit out, for the life of me! Unless the ghosts simply deemed it not to be.
Anyway, I can't say more than that because it would surely give away SPOILERS. I don't do SPOILERS. Sorry, but I think you'll sorta enjoy this one. It's an okay movie. Not gory, spooky but slightly twisting. I'm moving on to the next read. Cheers!
