The Eye

    (15)

    Yet another American remake of a successful Japanese shocker, this one a somewhat superior (until the narrative starts wobbling) horrorflick. Blind concert violinist Sydney Wells (Jessica Alba) undergoes successful corneal transplants which restore her sight. Unfortunately, they also allow her to see dead people filtered through the horrific experiences of her donor. The subject is hardly new, of course — the classic The Hands of Orlac/Mad Love used the same theme back in 1935 — but directors David Moreau and Xavier Palud, well served by Jeffrey Jur’s atmospheric cinematography, deliver the requisite chills and thrills.
