The Eye (2002)

Asian horror that gave me fierce wiggins. I watched it alone at 1 a.m, which is when all horror should be watched. It’s the story of a blind woman who receives a cornea transplant. Afterwards she begins to see horrific things that most sighted people can’t.
It’s not the most original concept, but the tension and the atmosphere the Pang brothers create makes the film more than memorable. If the final act had kept the pace it would score higher. Fans of Asian horror won't be disappointed. Pray you don't need to use an elevator after watching.

3½ dead things out of 5

Saw this when it first came out.

Don't remember much...something about a shit your pants traffic jam.

I do recall having the serious wiggins dragged through and through me and that's all that matters.

I should revisit this one some time soon.

I remember thinking the 2nd one was better. It's definitely scarier.
It's been ages since I watched it. Next time I'm awake at 1 am, I'll find out.

Avoid the 3rd one. It's a real PoS.

I saw the first 30 minutes of the Jessica Alba one a year or two ago.

It fell victim to the sexy stop button.
