Both frightening and sad,
This review is from: The Eye [DVD] (DVD)
'The Eye' is a fantastic piece of asian cinema. I watched this movie last week and it ranks as one of my favourite movies period. This film focuses on Mun, a woman who has been blind since the age of two, but has regained her sight due to a cornea transplant. However, her sight now reveals to her a terrifying world which only she experiences. It is now up to her to work out the mystery behind her new eye before it pushes her over the limit. This movie is so effective because it works on many levels. For the most part of this film, you will most likely be frightened and scared; this movie has an excellent atmosphre, and, without violence, manages to be incredibly unsettling and frightening. I won't go in to much detail about any particular frightening parts, becuase I feel this ruins the surprise and the overall scare factor of the scene. In between the scares however, is a strong, emotional storyline, which is full of heartbraking situations, again, I will not go into these as it would spoil the plot. But I must recommend this movie to all of you: it is intensely frightening, and heartbraking at times, and features great special effects. Buy it, 5 stars.
