Now that The Simpson's Treehouse of Horror episode has aired, we can all agree it's officially Spooky Season - so it's the perfect time to settle yourself down to watch a brand new horror flick. Especially one that's so scary it's had viewers 'seeing demons'. You can't really ask for much than that, can you?


Eli is the latest horror movie from the Netflix & Chills series, which has also included Fractured and In the Tall Grass.

The movie centres on young Eli (played by Charlie Shotwell) who has a debilitating illness that means he can't leave his home and must wear a protective suit if he wants to go outside.

His parents Rose and Paul (played by Kelly Reilly and Max Martini) think they may have found a solution when they send him off to a super-secluded facility for treatment but, of course, being a horror movie, it doesn't quite work out like that.

The treatment leaves poor Eli in pain and shortly after he starts to spot supernatural things - leaving him unsure as to who he can trust.

The movie also stars Sadie Sink (aka Max from Stranger Things) and Lili Taylor as Dr. Isabella Horn. Of course, it also manages to tick off a number of classic horror movie traits - creepy kids, secluded house, weird medical procedures and a hint of spectral beings running about the place.

However, and without giving away any spoilers, the film also has a twist at the ending and it's this that has left viewers reeling.

One took to Twitter to say: "So I saw this movie on Netflix called Eli. Started out with a pretty good haunted house hook, but that ending... Holy s***, I did not see that ending coming. No spoilers, but I recommend it if you wanna watch something this Halloween."

Another wrote: "I just watched Eli on Netflix and I SWEAR I'm seeing demons out of the corner of my eyes HELP."

While a third added: "If you're in need of a good scary movie for October, Eli on Netflix is so good with the most unexpected plot of all time."

Eli is available to stream on Netflix now - don't have nightmares!
