Editorial Reviews

A group of friends find themselves stranded in Thailand after unexpected airport closures. The only place with vacancies is an old, run- down hotel. As they uncover the history beneath the walls, they’re slowly drawn into its horrific past. The more dark, sinister things they see, the more their minds and bodies are taken over by the hotel’s permanent residents, making it harder to get out alive!

3.0 out of 5 stars Bizarre June 27, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I've seen a lot of Asian horror films, but this has got to be the weirdest movie I've ever seen in my life. About halfway through the movie I began to get confused. My confusion only got worse from there. It did not stop me from watching the entire movie, though. I'm not really sure how certain things got to be how they are in the film, and would have liked an explanation, but no big deal. It's not a fantastic movie; but if you've got time to kill and want to see something a little different, I'd recommend watching it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Strong visuals carry the film far too much October 11, 2011
Format:DVD
Paul Pritchard, DVD Verdict --The Child's Eye sees the Pang Brothers overly reliant on jump scares, with little time spent on really working on the atmosphere of the piece. Small moments occasionally break this trend. A scene where Ling (Elanne Kwong) confronts Quan (Ka Tung Lam) over the disappearance of her friends stands out as a suitably tense encounter, as does a subsequent scene where a mobile phone's ringtone threatens to alert a demon to the presence of Ling, but such moments are rare. All too often, the brothers rely on the soundtrack to build the tension, before unleashing another jump scare. This isn't necessarily such a bad thing when done well, as is the case here, but the lack of a interesting story means the film tends to drag, and its effect is lessened with each repeat viewing.

The cast is fine, but much like the plotting of the film, their performances are too informed by what has come before in the J-Horror genre to offer anything exciting or new. Their roles are also far too generic, with the male members of the cast in particular having little of note to make them memorable (or indeed necessary to the plot).

The theatrical release of The Child's Eye offered a 3D presentation of the film, though the DVD release only offers the movie in good old-fashioned 2D. Much of the 3D appears reliant on gimmicky shots of dismembered hands coming at the screen or bullets exploding in the viewers face; it's hardly subtle, but the loss of the extra dimension means these moments work considerably less well than the Pang Bros. intended.

The Child's Eye is presented in a 1.78:1 anamorphic transfer which is hard to fault. The picture is sharp, with a good level of detail. Colors are intentionally muted, lending the film a familiar Pang Brothers look.

"If she's locked up there how could she show up in the restaurant." A group of friends on vacation in Thailand are ready for a relaxing time. When word gets out that rebels are attempting to over through the Prime Minister. On their way to the airport the get the news that it's closed. Being able to only find rooms in a motel that is utterly rundown they decide to wait it out. They soon realize that there is more to the hotel then thought. Having not seen a whole lot of Japanese horror movies (I have seen the re-makes) I wasn't 100% sure what to expect. While this movie did tend to drag a little, it was very creepy and did make me jump a few times. The quality of this is very good, not only is it creepy but there is also a story that keeps you intrigued the entire time. That is not something you can say about most American horror movies. Overall, a very interesting and creepy horror that will creep you out. I give it a B-.

Would I watch again? - I don't think so.

2.0 out of 5 stars Kiosk Rating <1 October 28, 2011
Format:DVD
Seems to be three storylines very tenuously overlapping while occupying most of the movie. First, there's the one about some civil unrest in Thailand which seemed very docudrama like and was boringly distracting. Second, was an unexplained (probably the director felt it was too dumb to try) of a young girl that is part dog/part human (sure). Third, were some Chinese vacationers somewhere in between those storylines. Mostly you just see the vacationers doing typical dumb touristy things which goes on for over half the movie but interspersed with the docudrama of the sign waving civil unrest and dog/girl running around on all fours. Finally the dead mother of dog/girl shows up as a spirit and her body is later found floating in a tank of some liquid. Dog girl dies - end of story.

I watched the movie a second time and have decided that the dog/girl story was creative/different enough and coupled with a few decent, although inexpensive, effects makes the movie worthy of another star.

Ok, I watched it in a hurry not to let the stream period expire, so skipped many parts of it.
