Emma is an attractive girl in her 20s who has been blind for 20 years. A new type of eye operation partially restores her sight, but she is having problems: sometimes she doesn't "remember" what she's seen until later. One night she is awakened by a commotion upstairs. Peering out of her door, she sees a shadowy figure descending the stairs. Convinced that her neighbour has been murdered she approaches the police, only to find that she is unsure if it was just her new eyes playing tricks on her. Written by

The lines quoted by Hallstrom 'For the soul is dead that slumbers,/ And things are not what they seem.' are from A Psalm of Life by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882) and was first published in the Knickerbocker Magazine in October 1838. See more »
Emma's dog, Ralph, is a trained guide dog. These animals are trained to focus on assisting their owners, specifically to ignore distractions in their environment and to obey their masters instantly. Yet Ralph barks when Emma walks down the stairs, he pulls away from her in the car park to investigate something and he chases the man ignoring Emma's calls to come back. These behaviours are totally out of character for a guide dog. See more »

Madeline Stowe of "The Last of the Mohicans" fame stars in BLINK as a feisty musician who undergoes a new type of eye surgery to restore her vision, lost in childhood at the hands of an abusive mom. As her vision slowly returns, she runs afoul of a killer who is convinced she has gotten a good look at him, and is now after her. She tells the cops, who not surprisingly laugh at her. The irony is, she only sees the killer in a sort of surreal way, with the camera serving as Stowe's vision and showing us what amounts to little more than phantasms. She also suffers from mental time gaps with her returning vision. Stowe ends up falling for burly cop Aidan Quinn, who decides she's telling the truth and protects her. There's a nice trick at the very end involving the killer. Suspenseful and stylish for its time, with a thoughtful performance by Stowe.
