Descent to Death

"Eloise" is a film based on the actual Eloise Asylum located in Michigan. Eloise has quite a history and not all of it good.

Jacob and Dell are pretty good friends, and when Jacob is advised of his father's death, he is also told by the attorney handling the estate that he is the sole inheritor of $1.2 million--providing he can get the actual death certificate of a former aunt who--you guessed it-- resided at Eloise. He tells Dell of his need and since Dell is also in dire need of cash (to the tune of $20,000) he agrees to help. They should have just waited for the state to declare his aunt officially dead.

Along the way they encounter Eliza Dushku and her brother who apparently has a connection AND the blueprints to Eloise. They break in; getting out is the problem.

I will not be as critical of this movie as most. I thought the story line was developed nicely (it did actually make sense), and the acting and directing was better than most movies of this genre. There was not an overuse of blood and gore and the director did manage to build some actual tension. That does not mean the movie is without its warts, because it did have plenty.

Rated "R" for language, disturbing images, and some violence. This one is a toss-up.

You will be a new man

Jacob Martin (Chace Crawford) discovers his father has died and has left him a considerable inheritance with a catch. He must first prove his aunt (Nicole Forester) is dead, a person who most likely succumbed at the great fire of the Eloise Asylum. Her records are in the annex and can not be accessed without a court order which would take several months. Jacob's friend (Brandon T. Jackson) has an urgent need for money, so they opt to do a second story liberation. They enlist the help of Scott (P.J. Byrne) a slightly mentally dysfunctional person, and his sister Pia (Eliza Dushku) to look after Scott. Their mother worked at the infamous hospital known for "confrontation therapy" and Scott knows how to sneak into the records room.

It was a dark and stormy night....

This is the type of film that has been done many times before. It opens with a plot spoiler as an incident is being investigated. We already know two people who die and one survivor. Robert Patrick plays the evil doctor. There is also a Nurse Fletcher (Milica Govich) clearly a nod to Louise Fletcher. I don't mind stories that are familiar if they are done well. The acting was good. The intensity was spot on. The dialogue was decent.

Guide: F-word. No sex or nudity

It wasn't THAT bad.

The movie wasn't THAT bad. The only reason I watched it is because I grew up not far from there and didn't realize this was shot on site. I had never been in there but as a kid was threatened to be thrown in there 50 times (C'mon every town has one of these places that kids know of like "If you don't straighten up we're going to have you thrown in Shady Pines". Well for us it was Eloise).

The most horrifying thing about this movie was how they got that black dude to play that 1970s J.J. stereotype then have him stealing the drugs and shooting at everything. Having him nearly drown was the icing on the cake as you know black people are afraid of water too (eyeroll).

TRIVIA: Jackie Wilson is buried in a cemetery across the road from this place. It was paupers grave for years until they raised enough money for a proper monument.
