11-year-old Eli is taken by his mother and stepfather to a hospital in the countryside to cure his auto-immune deficiency. Unfortunately, everything is very mysterious and the creepy staff seem to have different intentions than first thought. At least the haunting ghosts of Eli’s predecessors and a young girl are on the hero’s side.
The film need not interest anyone who believes in a different God or in no God at all.
Finally the bad guys win and the good guys lose.
For friends of conservatism: at the end, father, Eli’s mother, Eli and his half-sister are happily united and drive a long way by car to Eli’s father. Now that’s true family idyll!
If you’re into profound films, you’re probably in the wrong place. But if you like scary films that are just fun, you can treat yourself to Eli.
