Paramount’s upcoming horror Eli will be heading straight to Netflix in the New Year. This means there’ll be no theatrical release for this haunted house horrifier.
Directed by Ciaran Foy, Eli is set to be a psychological thriller which follows a young boy’s hospital treatment turning into a nightmare. The boy and others become trapped and locked in a seemingly haunted clinic.
Foy recently directed the dire sequel Sinister 2, but is also behind the impressive supernatural chiller Citadel – which is definitely worth a watch if you can check it out.
The script for the film has been written by Ian B. Goldberg and Richard Naing, who are writers on the series Dead of Summer and were also behind the impressive and spooky story The Autopsy of Jane Doe and the upcoming Krypton mini-series.
Eli is currently in pre-production and has a release date slated for 4th January 2019 and stars Lili Taylor, Charlie Shotwell, Max Martini and Sadie Sink.
