The Eye (2008)

Directed by David Moreau and Xavier Palud. Written by Sebastian Gutierrez. Starring Jessica Alba, Alessandro Nivola, Parker Posey, Fernanda Romero, Obba Babatundi, Rachel Ticotin, Danny Mora and Chloe Grace Moretz.

Plot: a young woman recieves an eye transplant that allows her to see into the supernatural world.

Sydney (Alba) is a blind violinist who wants nothing more than to see. So, years and years after the accident that caused her blindness, she undergoes a cornea transplant. At first things are good. Blurry, but good. However, she soon begins having horrific visions of people dying. To figure out what these visions mean, she seeks the aid of fellow musician, Paul (Nivola).

The Freddy Claws is pretty good, but the movie is a little too sappy to be a straight up horror movie. I mean, the beginning and ending were taken right out of a Hallmark movie. It’s not terrible, it’s just weird. And it definitely could have been scarier. There were good effects and I loved the cast, but what was the point? In the end, she was only able to save certain people. Like, what??

Watch if you want to know what I mean.

My score: 45. DJ’s score: 42.
