"Eli" has a strong payoff too with a memorably intense final 15 minutes. But that roaring finish feels like it should come much earlier in the picture. The story ends just when it's finally going somewhere.

We have no real idea what's going on through most of Eli, which results in a film that is more often confusing than frightening.

The film is scattered with a number of familiar horror sequences, from a couple of nasty dreams to some extended jump scares, but none of them really land.

It's undeniably bold but Eli feels like a trap that ultimately forgives its prey. It's too safe of a horror movie. [Full review in Spanish].

Foy and the film's three writers build to an artless, third-act twist that feels like a future case study for cheap screenwriting rug-pulls.
