Did You Know?


The title "Five Across The Eyes" was inspired from the chorus of the song "Case Closed" by The Duskfall. During production, The Duskfall heard about the film and donated the song featuring the title phrase to the filmmakers. See more »


Melanie mentioned the story about her first period to Jessica but there was no conclusion at the end. See more »


Melanie: Caroline.. Jamie needs our help. We need to worry about her right now. Not Stephanie.
Caroline: Stop acting like Stephanie's dead.
Melanie: I don't wanna do this, but maybe it's best if we just assume the worst. Okay, I need your help here.
Melanie: Don't worry, Stef will be okay.
Caroline: Don't go and say stuff like that. That's being contradictory and it confuses me.

90 minutes of my life I'll never get back.
11 May 2008 | by steve_rattraySee all my reviews

I can't believe anyone liked this movie. I've seen a lot of low-budget indie films, but this one absolutely sucked. Low budget doesn't mean the movie has to be demented. Horror doesn't mean the movie has to be demented. There was nothing scary about this movie at all. It was just a gore-fest, and a particularly disturbing one at that. The acting was average, considering they were all unheard of actors, but the story was pathetic, the dialog was pathetic. The movie tries to come off as "artistic", or something. This is not one of those really great indie films that cost only thousands of dollars to make, but are incredibly well done. This was nothing more than an excuse for some extremely sick people to put their perverse obsessions on film. Other reviews here also said that the soundtrack sucked...that's because most of it was written by the same person, and some of the songs were written by one of the writers of the movie. There were no redeeming qualities to this movie at all. A complete waste of my time and money.
