Can't remove or move file

  This is a new one for me.  I converted a YouTube selection using 
youtube_dl and the file that was created was named -elDeJaPWGg.flv.  
When I try to rename it, or delete it, I get an error message thus:

root@ ~: rm -elDeJaPWGg.flv
rm: illegal option -- e
usage: rm [-f | -i] [-dIPRrvW] file ...
        unlink file

No switch with either the rm or mv command works.  What is actually 
going on here?
