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!

Usual high standards of the pang name apply. Own all pang films now and this is one of me faves. This besides eye and recycle is what I let friends borrow to get into foriegn film. Good mythos and like the black comedy. Also love the editing and camera work..never boring. Can see some parallels to recycle in the heavy CGI sequence :). Also theorizing that the book that is thrown out of the window at the end causes the car behind them to wreck. Is this the car crash that is filmed by handicam by character in the eye 3 (infinity or 10). I know this movie is necisarily apart of the eye trilogy but the ending could be a connection... My theory anyway. Also the boyfriend throws it put the window and causes the wreck so she shouldn't continue the curse of harm during pregnancy right? Unless it is their car that wrecks in which case everyone dies in the end but I prefer the car behind theory to hint at a continuation of the curse or a connection to the eye trilogy.

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.

The movie just wasn't that scary. The plot was clever and it had the perfect setting for a horror film, but it just never really found its footing.

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.
