Sydney Wells is an accomplished, independent, Los Angeles-based concert violinist. She is also blind, and has been so since a childhood tragedy. As our story opens, Sydney undergoes a double corneal transplant, a surgery she has waited her whole life to have, and her sight is restored. After the surgery, neural ophthalmologist Dr. Paul Faulkner helps Sydney with the difficult adjustment, and with the support of her older sister Helen, Sydney learns to see again. But Sydney’s happiness is short-lived as unexplainable shadowy and frightening images start to haunt her. Are they a passing aftermath of her surgery, Sydney’s mind adjusting to sight, a product of her imagination, or something horrifyingly real? As Sydney’s family and friends begin to doubt her sanity, Sydney is soon convinced that her anonymous eye donor has somehow opened the door to a terrifying world only she can now see.
Well even though this is a remake of the japanese original film, to me it all seems like a copy off of the eye segment from John Carpenter’s Body Bags, from way back in 1993. Though i am interested in seeing how Jessica Alba is in this film, alot hype going around her acting ability. This is a good test to see how well of an actress she is, Can’t wait to see it.
Shelby’s take – I too think that this is all to familiar to the eye segment of Body Bags, but I guess we’ll see if The Eye adds anything new to the mix.
