Jessica Alba declared that while she had been wanting to do a horror thriller for a long time, she did not want to do a slasher where each character dies in a more outrageous and bloody way, whereas she found this film to be elegant and very well-written, and her character, Sydney, to be elaborate and very interesting, thus enabling her to stretch her acting abilities.

Teen on Skateboard:
Oh, shit. Thanks. I didn't see that.
Neither did I.

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...

I'm not a fan of horror in any way but my friend really wanted to see The Eye and I went with him to see it. I do like Japanese horror and seeing as The Eye was a remake of a Chinese film I hoped to enjoy it (if that makes any sense). I hadn't seen the original but my friend gave me a summary of the original so I knew what to expect.
So I can easily say I loved it. It was well done and kept me interested the whole way through. The film effects were very believable (I won't reveal what they were for those who don't know the plot) and the story was a good one. I think if you're looking for a horror movie with a ton of blood this is definitely not the one to see. It's not a movie with a serial killer who kills everyone off. But if you're into supernatural thrillers then this is definitely what you're looking for. A little bit of mystery with the right effects to still make you jump.
