This review is from: The Eye [DVD] (DVD)
I bought this film on the strength of a review I saw and my enjoyment of the 'Ring' series of films. I can honestly say it's one of the best chillers I've seen for many years, the inevitable comparisons to Sixth sense are unfair, this film is so much better.
The 'Ring' series work by a very slow build up of dread, leading up to a focal point at the end of the film, this can mean the start of the film is quite slow, 'The Eye' works in no such way.
You are extremely quickly drawn into the film and held fast, cowering behind your sofa until the films excellent climax.
This film will not make you jump, nor will this film scare you with graphic images like 'Audition'. This film works on fear, and its scary moments will bore themselves into your psyche and rob hours of sleep from you.
A true masterpiece that for my money, is absolutely flawless.
