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.

(at around 14 mins) Both Wes Craven and Carl Ellsworth filmed cameos as airline passengers in the airport terminal. Wes Craven couldn't keep a straight face with his script supervisor Sheila Waldron, so their cameo wound up on the cutting room floor. Ellsworth's cameo remains in the final cut: three women are sleeping on the terminal seats and they all have their heads resting on the next ones shoulders, until the last one is sleeping on a man's shoulder; this is Carl Ellsworth wearing a green sweatshirt promoting the band Outkast.

(at around 4 mins) The cab that drops Lisa off has three stickers on the windshield on the passenger side and none on the driver's side. These surely are supposed to be registration and inspection stickers which are required to be on the driver's side according to Texas law. See more »
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!
