Eli means Electromagnetic Induction. It was produced by Ethan in the Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) laboratory at university. When the experiment went awry, it unlocked to something even more ominous than any one of them anticipated.

When Our House comes to a close, Becca is seen returning a doll she had previously gifted to a deceased child named Alice. The camera pans in on the face of the doll while ominous music sets the tone for what the doll could symbolize. Despite her siblings trying to ensure that she continue to have the doll, Becca races into the house as they are all leaving to return it to Alice.
The doll could represent a plethora of meanings. For instance, it could be that Alice has possessed the doll, similar to the Annabelle (2014) doll and series, and Becca was returning it to ensure her family would not be plagued by its malevolence any further. The doll could also represent closure, she is finally ready to move on from the fatality of her parents. This second possibility is highly unlikely, due to the fact that the doll still holds traces of paranormal energy that will transfer from owner to owner.

It has been two years since Our House released to audiences. While it received mostly mixed reviews, the ending sets up for a possible sequel that has true franchise potential. When the energy of the paranormal entities is transferred from Eli to the doll, it ultimately means that the horrors are not over for the family or for future owners. The ending sets up a sequel that could resemble Annabelle or even Amityville Horror (1979). Considering Eli is a revolutionary contribution to the paranormal horror genre, a sequel could be a welcome addition.
As of June 2020, there is no word on whether or not the film will receive a sequel but fans of the film are hopeful. Nearly everything aligns to set up the perfect sequel: the doll, the ambiguous ending, the ability to create a new Eli, and also even more. The film gives horror fans what the paranormal sub genre is currently lacking, a unique take on how the supernatural manifests in the living realm. It has actually the capacity to rejuvenate an otherwise stale sub genre that is loved by many. Our House is a remarkable paranormal thriller horror film that is extra than deserving of a follow up or even a larger franchise business company.
