Entertainment Reviews:

Box Office - 06/01/2003
"...Tension builds as the twists artfully unfurl to a cataclysmic climax....This film is an intelligent, creepy thrill and the Pang Bros. are most assuredly filmmakers to keep an 'EYE' on..."
Rolling Stone - 06/26/2003
"...The Pangs spin their own unique sense of dread....The Pangs deliver enough shivery scares to keep you up nights..."
New York Times - 06/06/2003
"...Oxide and Danny Pang, the Thai-born, Hong-Kong-based twins who directed this spooky, efficient exercise in terror, use simple and precise techniques to scare you before you even understand what there is to be afraid of..."
Los Angeles Times - 06/06/2003
"...Agreeably spooky....[The] sense of pacing is nicely arrhythmic..."
Entertainment Weekly - 06/13/2003
"...[With] style to spare...[and] fluid, deliciously eerie imagery..."

Product Description:

THE EYE, directed by twin brothers Danny and Oxide Pang, is a Chinese/Thai horror film that focuses on Mun (Sin-je Lee), a cornea-transplant recipient who has been blind most of her life. As Mun adjusts to her newfound sight, she begins to see haunting visions of dead people. As these terrifying visions become more frequent, Mun turns to a young psychiatrist, Dr. Wah (Lawrence Chou), for help. Eventually the two track the identity of the deceased eye donor to Thailand, and there the mystery is finally brought to light.

With THE EYE, the Pang brothers enter the increasingly populated subgenre of contemporary Asian horror. Drawing on the visual language of recent Japanese films such as RING and PULSE, as well as Hollywood films THE SIXTH SENSE and STIR OF ECHOES, this chilling tale implies more than it reveals, building a deep sense of dread, even from the opening credits. Although the "I-see-dead-people" plotline has been investigated numerous times, THE EYE manages to put a different lens on the idea through subtleties in the story and the charismatic performance of the radiant Sin-je Lee. Featuring scenes that will make all viewers wary of elevators, hospital recovery wards, and calligraphy, this film offers truly startling moments that will linger in the mind's eye for a long time.
