DVD REVIEW: The Eye
Hollywood remakes of successful Asian horror films all tend to hit the same snag: when stripped of the subtitles and cultural differences present in the original, the audience no longer have the added thrill of unfamiliarity to enhance the chills, and the remake becomes indistinguishable from any other horror film.
Sadly, this is just one of the traps that The Eye falls into. It’s also slow moving, filled with dodgy dialogue and some of the performances are decidedly wooden.
On the plus side, it has some good special effects and a very spooky audio track, and it doesn’t overstay its welcome. You can find out if these redeeming features are enough to compensate for The Eye's failings by checking out our full review over on The Leisure Lab.
