Synopsis


The Eye
Sydney Wells (Jessica Alba) has been given the gift of sight, but it comes with a horrifying price in the English-language remake of Danny and Oxide Pang's The Eye. The double corneal transplant was to open up a new world for Sydney, a concert violinist whose blindness has plagued her since childhood. With the help of Dr. Paul Faulkner (Alessandro Nivola) and sister Helen (Parker Posey), Sydney's operation and recovery seemed to be on the road to success -- until horrific images start to tear their way into her newfound vision. What's worse is that these episodes appear to foreshadow future deadly events, leading Sydney on a mission to track down the person whose eyes she has inherited and discover what kind of mystery from beyond the grave lies before her. The film is directed by David Moreau and Xavier Palud, the duo behind the acclaimed 2006 French terror flick Them, and is produced by Tom Cruise and Paula Wagner under their Cruise/Wagner production banner. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi

    My wife and I love this movie! We saw it in the theater and again on DVD, just as good both times. Some people don't like all the Japanese remakes we're doing, I personally love it! The Japanese have wonderful imaginations and make really creepy horror movies, however, thier acting and special effects are poor. We have much better acting and great special effects, but we lack good storylines. We are mostly known for slasher films, (masked man chases woman with chainsaw or axe or knife, etc.) Don't get me wrong, I love a good-old-fashion American slasher film. But, the same old plot gets boring after a while. The Japanese have given us a whole new genre of horror films that I have a lot of respect for. So, if you're a fan of such films as The Ring movies, The Grudge movies, Shutter, One Missed Call, etc., then you'll enjoy this film. It has great acting, great special effects, and it's very creepy! I highly recommend it!

    I was very upset with this movie. There was tension between Sydney (Alba) and her doctor (Nivola), but nothing EVER happened. Very dissapointing. It was just a very depressing attempt of a movie. Jessica Alba is gorgeous like always, but not enough to keep the interest of the viewer for the actual content of the movie brought or just plain lacked...

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Such a simple concept made into a good freaky movie. The un-nerving special effects of the ghosts are what make this a good movie and yet another enjoyable japanese homage film.
