After checking into a clean house to treat his auto-immune disorder, Eli, 11, begins to believe that the house is haunted. Unable to leave, the boy soon suspects that the house, and the doctor who runs it, are more sinister than they appear in ELI from director Ciarán Foy and the producers of “The Haunting of Hill House.”
Written by David Chirchirillo, Ian Goldberg, and Richard Naing, the film is part of Netflix and Chills.
ELI is the story of a young boy (Charlie Shotwell) plagued with an unknown, debilitating illness that requires him to live completely sealed off from the outside world. After exhausting every option, his parents (Kelly Reilly and Max Martini) put their trust – and his life – in the hands of a doctor (Lili Taylor) whose experimental, cutting edge treatments at her clean house facility 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 and what is lurking inside the house. Co-starring Sadie Sink.
ELI debuts on Netflix on October 18, 2019.
