Film Review: ‘Eloise’

3 February 2017 12:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Someday, someone will make a movie about all the warm and wonderful things that could happen on the site of a former insane asylum. Until that day, however, we will no doubt get a lot more like “Eloise,” in which absolutely nothing nice happens in such a place. The things that do happen all seem routinely reprised from prior horror movies, nearly all of them better than this one, a slick but thoroughly uninspired helming debut for veteran visual effects supervisor and second-unit director Robert Legato. Starring Chase Crawford and Eliza Dushku as the chief unfortunates trapped in a long-shuttered looney bin that malevolently “comes alive again,” this scare-deprived frightfest will primarily be watched and forgotten by genre fans in home formats after an eye-blink run in theaters.

The Eloise of the title isn’t a children’s-book heroine, but the name of an actual eastern Michigan mental institution that existed for 150 years, »
