Trapped in an isolated gas station by a voracious Splinter parasite that transforms its still living victims into deadly hosts, a young couple and an escaped convict must find a way to work together to survive this primal terror.
The violinist Sydney Wells has been blind since she was five years old due to an accident.

With the support of Dr. Paul Faulkner, Sidney finds who the donor of her eyes and begins a journey to find out the truth behind her visions. Written by

Just like the original The Eye, the story takes its source from a real event, that of a young woman who committed suicide shortly after undergoing a cornea transplant, though she seemed to be living a perfectly normal and healthy life. See more »

Teen on Skateboard:
Oh, shit. Thanks. I didn't see that.
Neither did I.
[voice-over while Sydney walks in the street and settles in a café]
People say seeing is believing, but for me, that's not entirely true. I lost my sight when I was five years old. Those memories of what I have seen have faded so much that I doubt I'd even recognize myself anymore. Now I see using my other senses. I can smell the rain before it drops, but I can't watch it fall. I can feel the sun on my face, but I can't see it rise...

The Eye (2002) is an excellent horror film.That movie had a great atmosphere,an excellent performance from the main actress,some creepy moments which produced me some jumps and a disturbing but perfect ending.And the remake of The Eye lacks of all that important elements.If I have to summarize this movie in a few words,I would say:another crappy remake.This remakes MUST be stopped.This film does not have a good atmosphere,Jessica Alba does not show any of credibility on her role and the ''scary'' moments produced on me unintentional laughs.But,the worst element from this movie is that they changed the brilliant ending from the original film for a pathetic one.Alessandro Nivola is the only one of the cast who shows some enthusiasm and he added some points to this poor movie.Maybe,the people who did not see the original movie will appreciate the film more.But,for me,The Eye (2008) is a crappy movie with cheap thrills.Like I said before,these remakes MUST be stopped.
