Storyline

This is the story of a young resourceful heroine woman named Lisa Reisert who hates to fly, but the terror that awaits her on the night flight to Miami has nothing to do with a fear of flying! Upon boarding the plane, Lisa is trapped on a red-eye flight with a creepy villainous handsome and charming man by the name of Jackson Rippner, who's playing middle-man in the plot to assassinate a Homeland Security official. He's got her father pinned down by a would-be killer, using that advantage to coerce Lisa into phoning the luxury resort where she works and arranging to move the target into a pre-set position. Written by Anthony Pereyra <hypersonic91@yahoo.com>

Trivia

Following special advance screenings of the movie in Los Angeles and New York, audiences were given replica copies of the monster pen used in the movie as memorabilia. Attached to the souvenir was a tag that read: "Red Eye, in theaters August 19th." On the back read: "Don't take the red eye without this... www.redeye-themovie.com." See more »

Goofs

When Lisa and Jackson run upstairs in the chase scene through the house, Lisa runs through a room where bright sunlight is coming from the windows before closing the door behind her, meaning these windows were open. After Jackson picks the lock and swings the door open, you can see that the curtains are shut and the room is dark. See more »

Well directed
15 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had fun watching Red Eye. It's not a masterpiece, but it's well directed and structured. Cillian Murphy and Rachel McAdams are perfect in the role. Yes, it's the same old story with a different setting but Wes Craven gave it a good pace. At least not another Scream with the usual college killer. It's nice when you can see a clean, coherent thriller even when originality doesn't stand out as its main character. Particularly from a film-maker like Craven that has brought so many innovative ideas to the thriller and horror genre in the past and that now just lends himself to bringing home what could have been a good TV movie had it not been released theatrically. Good job!
