One of the most underrated horror movies of the 2000's
on April 13, 2013
The Eye was a fantastic horror movie. I am a hardcore horror movie fan and have seen not too many foreign horror movies. Angelica Lee plays a blind girl who gets a cornea transplant to see it again but realizes soon she got more than she bargained for. She sees haunting visions and ghosts. I won't say too much more. The hospital scenes are creepy and atmospheric. Lee is a strong heroine who is likable. I was on the edge of my seat the whole movie. The third and final act of movie was awesome. I found this movie to be scary and interesting. It felt original. I really liked the ending. It's a great ghost story. It's a got a great blend of psychological scares and some gore added in. There are great suspense in scenes which make the movie exciting and keep a good pace.
I know some people are not fans of subtitles but for this movie it's worth enduring it. The acting is good in this movie but I think the best aspect was the directing. There was a claustrophobic feel to it that you made you scared more than other horror films. I got this film for a good price on amazon and it was worth it. Of all the horror movies I've been watching this is one of my favorite. This is a great foreign film for fans who are just being introduced to the foreign horror. It's a spooky tale that will stick with you well after the credits. This movie sparked an interest in foreign horror movie films that I am going to be seeing Shutter, Ringu and One Missed Call. Some foreign films I can recommend are Let the Right One In, A Tale of Two Sisters and Imprint. Cheers!
