Good movie but NOT for horror fans
If you’re looking for a pulse-pounding horror thriller, you won’t find that here. If you’re looking for a spooky ghost story, you might want to move on. If you’re looking for blood & guts & body parts, don’t even waste a minute of your time.

“The Eye” isn’t so much a horror flick as it is a supernatural drama.

This film is a remake of the 2002 Chinese “The Eye” which I haven’t seen, so I can’t (and probably shouldn’t) compare the two. I thought this was a nicely done film, more of an intimate character study than a scary “gotcha” flick. In that respect it’s similar to “The Sixth Sense”, and not just the story. Like “The Sixth Sense” which was a slow moving psychological drama that just happened to have dead people in it, “The Eye” takes a personal approach as well. And while that may bore the audience members who are expecting some screams, it ultimately results in a film with a little bit more to say than your average screamer.

Jessica Alba (“Sydney”) does a great job of playing a woman who has been blind since age 5, a loner, someone who doesn’t seem to have many connections with people and she likes it that way. The underlying theme is that her blindness makes her feel unique, exempt from the real world. When she regains her sight after 15 years by a corneal transplant, it’s not necessarily the wonderful experience you’d expect. There’s a scene when she comes back from the hospital to a surprise party, and the scene is filmed with unsettling, distorted closeups of strange faces. It perfectly expresses the confusion and claustrophobia of not just a blind person gaining her sight, but that of an introvert being forced into society. That enough could’ve been enough for a feature length film: how a woman deals with the “gift” of sight which she doesn’t really want. But it doesn’t end there. She starts seeing dead people, too.

While we never really feel like Sydney is in any deadly peril, there are a few very effective surprises which, I gotta admit, quickened my pulse a few notches. Also the “shadow men” were very creepy, and if you want to see a real shocker, check out the bonus features where we learn that the shadow men are not cgi graphics, but it’s an actual dude… a sort of living skeleton who looks just as bizarre in real life than on screen.

The 2nd half of the film becomes a mystery as Sydney tries to figure out why she’s getting these disturbing visions and what she’s supposed to do about it. Again, no hair raising car chases or shootouts here, just a thick atmosphere of the unknown.

Like I said, I haven’t seen the original Chinese film, but I can tell that the American filmmakers were trying to add a degree of backstory. In the bonus features they talk about the science of “cellular memory” (the idea that donated organs possess characteristics that are imparted to the new recipient). So I can assume that this is less of a visceral shocker (like the original?) as it is an intellectual approach. There’s also the psychology bit I mentioned above. And it also touches on the idea that artists, musicians & creative thinkers are more sensitive to supernatural events (Sydney is a concert violinist). In short, “The Eye” sacrifices the raw approach of a typical action-horror flick, and instead replaces it with more of a slow-moving, scientific or “rational” approach to the supernatural.

Depending on your preference, that’s a good or bad thing. I can go either way depending on my mood; once in a while I like to think, whereas other times I just want to see Freddy slice some people to ribbons. “The Eye” definitely falls on the thinking side of that scale. Other thinking horror flicks I recommend are “Exorcist III” (one of the BEST), “The Others” with Nicole Kidman, and of course “The Sixth Sense”.

“These Are Not My Eyes.” — Slightly Better Than Most Would Expect.
“The Eye” is a supernatural horror/thriller about Sydney Wells (Jessica Alba), an accomplished violinist who lost her sight at the age of five. But with advanced medical technology, Sydney is able to undergo a corneal transplant procedure, which would restore her vision. After the surgery though, the fact that Syndey can see the world around her doesn’t matter to her anymore, because along with it she is seeing ghostly visions and witnessing horrific events from the past and the future. It begins to seem that Sydney is taking on the traits of the donor of the eyes, and she must uncover her identity to stop the visions and put the donor’s spirit to rest.

While I haven’t seen the original Chinese version, I can say this was a decent horror flick. It’s a PG-13 horror flick, yes, but it’s rather sophisticated for being so. Most films in this type of league have reputations for being not-so-great (a couple of examples that I can agree with would be last year’s “The Messengers”, and this year’s “One Missed Call”, both being films that completely missed the mark). But this was better than a lot of the PG-13 thrillers that are out there, and it is easy to see there was some solid thought and work put into it. The story, while it is a remake, is intriguing. The entire idea of an eye transplant is a scary thing to begin with, and the supernatural element carried along with it is clever. I really thought the pacing in the film was great, it evened itself out when handling the suspense and scares with the dramatic elements and was gradual up until the end.

There is some really great creepy imagery as well and some neat cinematography, and that’s where most of this movie’s strength is. There are some genuinely eerie visuals in this movie, most of them unlike any I’ve seen before, and there are some clever shocks and scares as well. I even have to admit that I jumped a couple of times and was slightly spooked, so I have to applaud the direction because they did a good job with that. I also immensely enjoyed the sequences where we get to see through the lead character’s eyes, blurry vision and all, which was a neat way to put the audience in her shoes as her life spirals out of control after the procedure. I’m really squeamish when it comes to anything involving someone’s eyes too, as many people are I’m sure, so a few moments did get my skin crawling.

I’m not going to lie, this movie does have some standard clichés but manages to be at least halfway original in some aspects. The acting is decent, nothing remarkable but Jessica Alba makes a likable lead here. Parker Posey is good too as her older sister, although her part is pretty small. Alessandro Nivola plays the role of the doctor who initially doesn’t believe anything the Alba character is saying, a role we know too well, but does what he can with it. Also notable is Chloe Moretz of “The Amityville Horror” remake, playing a young cancer patient. The action-laced ending was a little flat if you ask me, and the revelation of the ghost’s discontentment was well-thought out but also a little flat. I’m not going to harp on it though, because I felt there was sufficient effort put into this, and I for the most part enjoyed most of the movie.

Overall, in my eyes (pun intended), “The Eye” is a decent horror movie. It’s not perfect by any means, but I can say it’s better than most of the PG-13 horror flicks that have hit theaters in recent years. All in all it’s a bit above average, and worth seeing if you like this sort of thing. It serves a few good scares and some interesting ideas, managing to be halfway refreshing compared to most horror films lately. I’d also like to add that this was far better than the atrocious remake of the Japanese horror movie, “One Missed Call”, which was released about a month before this. So, if you were put off by that mess of a movie, I’d say give this one a chance, it might surprise you. It did me, anyway. 7/10.
