The Horror of the ‘Eloise’ Hospital Comes to Life This February
I’m pretty sure a few of you have heard the stories in regards to the Eloise psychiatric hospital located in Westland, MI, right? Well, Robert Legato is tackling the horrors of the institution with his latest flick Eloise, and we have the official trailer, artwork and more.
Now I’ve never heard of the place, but apparently the place was so big that it even had its own zip code!
The film stars Eliza Dushku, Robert Patrick, Chace Crawford, Brandon T. Jackson, and PJ Byrne.
Synopsis: Four friends break into the abandoned institution in hopes of finding a death certificate, which will provide Jacob (Crawford) with the rights to a sizable inheritance. While inside the asylum, the group not only finds that the institution houses a horrifying history but also the truth about their own tragic pasts. They’re shooting in the Eloise Insane Asylum which was one of the largest mental institutions in the world. What began as one building in Westland, MI in 1832, rapidly grew into a 78-building self-sustained city, complete with its own fire and police departments, train station, post office and farms. Eloise closed its doors in 1982, and has since been dormant and left to ruin.
The film is set to hit the UK this February 6th on DVD. You can pre-order your copy via Amazon.co.uk.
