What is the Netflix Movie Eli about?
A boy named “Eli” has a rare auto-immune disorder, which makes him allergic to everything. He cannot go outside; otherwise, his skin will burn. His parents take Eli to another house where he can get proper treatment for his disorder. The location is medically sealed and clean. These measures are necessary for Eli his protection. Later on, Eli discovers that the place is not what it seems to be.
Charlie Shotwell is the kid actor that plays “Eli.” It’s the first time I’ve seen him play in a movie and he is fantastic. He has done an excellent job of portraying his character. You can read all the emotions of fear and frustration on his face. That is what I call “Good Acting.”
Not that scary
The movie isn’t as frightening I expect it would be. The terrifying parts for me were already in the movie trailer. The jump scares always get me, but maybe they won’t work on you. I get scared very quickly when it comes to horror movies.
Only one scene was violent, but it was still watchable. Sometimes gore can be unbearable for some people. That won’t be the case for most people.
Third part: unexpected
I thought I’d predicted the plot of the movie during the first part, but I was wrong. Only my prediction of the motives of the ghosts was right. The third part of this film will surprise you. The Netflix Movie Eli did a great job of keeping you guessing on what it’s about. I liked that it surprised me, but I do not know if I like the twist at the end.
