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.

Seeing dead people? A jarring journey from darkness into light? Granted, it's been done. But there are sweet, difficult pleasures here just the same.

It's a definite display of talent, but without enough thematic richness to get deeply under our skins.

To put all the pieces in place, the Pangs have to cut a few corners in logic, but the story is generally effective if not exactly original.

The Pang brothers have a gift for evoking dread and shock-tactic creepiness.

This is the kind of movie you happen across on TV, and linger to watch out of curiosity, but its inspired moments serve only to point out how routine, and occasionally how slow and wordy, the rest of it is.

Like the horror-flick hacks who infest Hollywood like termites, the Pangs don't build suspense, they assault the senses with twitchy photography and Danny's editing.

Directors Oxide and Danny Pang build the film's tension incrementally in these scenes, never amping it up with special effects or orchestral accents.

It's more concerned with images and clashing electronic music than challenging the imagination or brutalizing the senses.

Ms. Lee, much more than a standard horror-movie shrieker, looks convincingly haunted by what she sees, and the Pangs' pictorial instinct is as sure as their shock-producing sense of timing.

[The Pangs'] sense of pacing is nicely arrhythmic, which makes the 'boo' moments all the more heart-thudding, but what's even more pleasurable are the pockets of quiet, those lacuna of low-frequency dread when nothing much happens.

In their fluid, deliciously eerie imagery, the Pangs can make the sight of even a dish of sliced duck in a busy noodle shop seem as ominous as the chilling, blurry specters that only Mun can see.

Given that The Eye plays out without so much as a single new idea or real surprise, it's a testament to the Pangs' knack for composition and editing ... that the movie goes boo as effectively as it does.
