Eli

Critics Consensus

Intermittently effective if not wholly successful, Eli offers horror fans a handful of jump scares in search of a truly terrifying story.

Movie Info

ELI is the story of a young boy plagued with an unknown, debilitating illness that requires him to live completely sealed off from the outside world. After exhausting every option, his parents put their trust -- and his life -- in the hands of a doctor whose experimental, cutting edge treatments may hold Eli's last hope. As Eli undergoes the tremendously intense process that could potentially cure him, he begins to be haunted by experiences that make him question who he can trust.

  • "Eli" has a strong payoff too with a memorably intense final 15 minutes. But that roaring finish feels like it should come much earlier in the picture. The story ends just when it's finally going somewhere.

  • We have no real idea what's going on through most of Eli, which results in a film that is more often confusing than frightening.

  • The film is scattered with a number of familiar horror sequences, from a couple of nasty dreams to some extended jump scares, but none of them really land.

  • Netflix's latest horror film is among its most surprising and entertaining.

  • It's undeniably bold but Eli feels like a trap that ultimately forgives its prey. It's too safe of a horror movie. [Full review in Spanish].

  • Foy and the film's three writers build to an artless, third-act twist that feels like a future case study for cheap screenwriting rug-pulls.
