Hold on tight...,
This review is from: The Eye [DVD] (DVD)
I enjoyed this film immensely because it actually managed to evoke that icy fear we have of the dead and the weary susperstitions about ghosts. Also the fact that this film was based on a true story makes it even more disturbing.
From the first and frankly the most chilling encounter Mun (Anjelica Lee) has with a ghost in a hospital, it becomes a compelling mystery to discover the true source of her "gift" and in the process enter a world of unsettling and imaginative terror.
The Eye doesn't altogether rely on shock techniques to scare you, though when it does it's definitely not for those of a nervous disposition. Instead it works away at your psyche and taints it with apprehension and unease and this is how the film succeeds as a horror. There is no blood or gore and the imagination woven with each ghostly meeting is first class. Just be careful the next time you eat a slice of char siu.....
