A curse from the past reawakens in the present to torment a family in Evil Eye, a stylish suspense thriller with a supernatural edge. From her home in Delhi, India, proud parent Usha Khatri (Sarita Choudhury) is overjoyed when her daughter Pallavi (Sunita Mani) calls from New Orleans with news that she has met someone special. But Usha's happiness turns to fear when she notices strange similarities between Pallavi's wealthy boyfriend Sandeep (Omar Maskati) and a frightening figure from her own past. Although her suspicions are dismissed by friends and family, the more Usha learns about this new man in her daughter's life, the more certain she becomes that an evil force from 30 years earlier has returned with a vengeance. When Pallavi announces her engagement to Sandeep, Usha is forced to confront a terrifying question: How do you protect the ones you love when the thing you fear most won't stay dead?

Blumhouse TV needs help
When i first heard about the Blumhouse TV project, and the four new movies that will be released in October, i was excited, since Blumhouse has a history of making mostly cool horror movies, with the most recent one being The Invisible Man. I saw the first three films: Black Box, The Lie and Nocturne, and i was hugely disappointed, but i guess they saved the worst for last with this one. First of all it feels like all four movies have been done by the same writer/ director. Even same running time: 1h :30 min. All have poor story, poor acting, poor everything. They all seem very rushed, without any depth whatsoever. In this one, it's basically about a mother and daughter talking over the phone for the most part of the film, like don't you have other stuff to do in your life??? The leading actress Sunita Mani who played the daughter, i liked her in the movie Save Yourselves, she was a lot of fun, here she's like another person, with too much makeup all the time, even when she's in bed sleeping!!! Mostly i feel bad for Blumhouse, cause this is definitely below their previous work, and if the next four films in this project with Amazon are anything like those films, then it's a big mistake to make them.
