Is it a horror, a thriller, a tragedy, a disaster pic, or a romance? It's never really sure, but either way it limps along through various dips into different genres and often times is scrambled and confused...

Made me jump a bunch of times, and seriously creeped me out at least three times.

Sure, the "I see dead people" plot is a bit worn out, but there's enough mood and spookiness to make for a fun MM flick.

This is a movie with serious intent, a mature, wordy thriller with naturalistic (if somewhat naive) performances and aspirations to poetry.

The Eye rises above your standard cursed-body-part fare--like The Hand, for instance--by exploring predestination, alienation, and the redeeming power of forgiveness.

With its spooky first-person rendering of Mun's experience -- blurred, tentative, disoriented -- The Eye creates a world of constant and imminent upheaval.

Though perhaps not the greatest thing since sliced eyeballs, The Eye is definitely worth a look, or even a double-take.

The Pang Brothers rely on mixing reality with hokum to make their tale more strange than scary.

The Eye is not terribly original, but it is assured and engrossing, with some deliciously chilling scares and a subtle, compelling performance by Lee Sin-je.

The Eye is definitely a triumph of style over substance but, nevertheless, it's been far too long since I've been genuinely spooked by a horror film.

One thing 'The Eye' teaches us is that a 15-floor elevator ride really seems to take a long time when there's a ghost standing in the corner.

It's creepy and forbidding, the way good thrillers are. I suspect it would not hold up to multiple viewings, but it's a kick one time through, anyway.

It's not afraid to broach some deeper questions about the meaning of death, predestination and social and personal responsibility.

Until it loses its head in the final reel, [this] is a cool supernatural thriller that subtly mixes Western style and Eastern mysticism.
