Mun (Sin-Jie) had
been blind since the age of two but she now had the chance to see again
thanks to cornea transplants. All seems to be going well until Mun realises
that she is seeing more than the rest of us. The operation has had a very
undesirable side effect, she sees the spirits of the dead.
If you want to see
truly terrifying cinema, the Far East to the place to find movie that will
scare you witless and The Eye is a classic example.
The premise is bound
to be compared with The Sixth Sense, but the fact that both deal with the
people seeing the dead is the only similarity between the two. The Eye has
more scares in its opening sequence than in M. Night Shyamalan's entire
movie. This is a seriously spooky and jumpy film.
are very good especially from the beautiful Lee Sin-Jie, as you feel the
exact about of fear that she does on the screen. She genuinely looks terrified
as she portrays a young woman who is scared enough seeing the world for
the first, never mind the spirits who refuse to leave it.
The Pang Brothers
use every cinematic technique in the book, combining brilliant special effects,
music, sound effects and quick editing to make this movie truly frightening.
It is visually stunning with some absolutely terrifying sequences and an
ending that will blow you away.
This is one of the
best horror movies I have seen in years. One that grabs you and doesn't
let go even when you've finished watching it. Take something to hide behind
if you are of a nervous disposition.
