Paramount Players first psychological horror movie Eli is directed by Ciaran Foy (Citadel and Sinister II) and is all set to haunt your local multiplex this January. We haven’t seen a trailer or poster yet but we do have an MPAA rating. So that’s something.
Yes, today we have word that the film has been rated R for “some horror violence/images.” Meh. I don’t like the use of the word “some.” But I guess “some” is better than “none.”
Foy directs from a screenplay by David Chirchirillo, Ian Goldberg, and Richard Naing. The film stars Kelly Reilly (10×10), Lili Taylor (Leatherface), Max Martini, and Sadie Sink (Stranger Things 2). Trevor Macy, John Zaozirny and Melinda Nishioka produce. Matt Alvarez executive produces.
It hits theaters January 4, 2019.
A young boy undergoes treatment for a rare disease at a secluded clinic, which becomes a haunted prison with no way out.
