Aims for intricate, Hitchcockian suspense, embellished with ornate visual flourishes that recall Dario Argento's early giallo movies.
I doubt this project occupied much of del Toro's attention, and it's fundamentally an exercise in genre and style -- but what style!
All about mystery and suspense, slowly laying the foundation for an extremely tense final act.
Julia's Eyes doesn't mean much more than what shows up on the surface of the screen, but it's a cinematic exercise that certainly puts a person on edge.
Julia's Eyes stops just short of being an amazing thriller but...some excellent camera work heightens the experience of fumbling through the mystery from Julia's perspective.
A tense psychological thriller, Julia's Eyes is another example why the Spanish have become the kings of quality horror cinema.
The anchoring performance of Rueda is what keeps this second-hand material fresh and forcefully involving.
Julia's Eyes becomes a little incoherent as it plunges towards resolution, but it's unerringly stylish and whole-heartedly suspenseful along the way.

This terrifying psychological thriller cum horror film plays with notions that are both real and imagined and whose premise relies on fear of the known and the unknown, and most notably, of the dark
Good fun, but featuring more twists than a double helix, Julia's Eyes could more aptly be titled 'When Blind Man's Buff Gets Out of Hand'.
An over-cooked but good-looking and occasionally effective chiller about a visually impaired woman terrorised by malevolent forces.
A fascinating, broken-backed picture full of riveting twists and dubious psychology.

Not only is it genuinely unsettling, but it's full of clever nods to horror masterpieces
