Takes a B-minus import and turns it into a D-minus retread.

Brothers Danny and Oxide Pang's unnerving spook show from 2002 has been translated into a clunky, aimless interpretation that leaves you with just one overpowering thought: are Jessica Alba's lips for real?

Turns out seeing dead people can still be kind of a thrill.

Jessica Alba may be easy on the eyes, but a lack of dramatic heft makes her hard on The Eye.

It creates a good atmosphere, but no tension. The movie is just not memorable.

It's all based on the creepy little Chinese film Gin gwai, an atmospheric spine-tingler that, we're sad to say, is considerably more frightening than this tame effort.

Terrible direction, forgettable performances, and writers who are so faithful to the source material that they even pick up the original film's plot holes...

...ultimately establishes itself as the most effective endeavor of its kind since 2005's Dark Water.

...it doesn't leave us with much more than a feeling that we've been there and seen it all before.

A terrifying treat for horror junkies, as Alba's nervous wreck visionary wards off being attacked by apartments and restaurants, while dealing with a bad case of occult organ rejection.

With every twist of the second-hand plot telegraphed far in advance, you don't need to be clairvoyant to see where this is going.

Effectively creepsome until it bogs down somewhat in plot explication.

Alba simply isn't good enough to carry this kind of movie, and lacks the presence to counter the major deficiencies of a weak and feeble ghost story.

One can't turn a blind eye to such conspicuous failings.

There are a couple of effective scares, but this feels like a retread too far. Enough with J-horror already - let's do something new.

Lionsgate has delivered a solid PG-13 horror film that's both entertaining and suspenseful... and for those of you who don't like it, there will be more SAW on October 24.

The latest American remake of an Eastern import in which the thrills have been hopelessly squandered in translation, replaced with distracting, rapid-fire camerawork and thunderous bumps in the night that reflect a kind of creative desperation.

Transforming Asian horror into American horror isn't so bad when the filmmakers respect the source material.
