If [Farrow] displays a narrow emotional range, that is less the fault of the actress than of the film makers.
It had at least one coincidence too many to be believable.
If you like stories about psychotic killers, See No Evil will make Halloween's Mike Myers look like a sissy.
Memorable mostly for its small experiments and gimmicks. Thankfully, those gimmicks are, for the most part, well executed.
Suspensesful but over-padded killer-thriller about a sleazy madman with a snazzy pair of cowboy boots who stalks and murders a wealthy family in their country home with the exception of the blind niece (Mia Farrow) who is left to survive on her own. It's effectively made with some gripping moments and the faceless killer will leave you guessing his identity till the end. There are some slow moments though and I found the ending a little unsatisfying. On the whole a pretty good thriller that deserves a watch but it's unlikely to appeal to fans of sleaze that like nothing left to the imagination, this is a bit more classy.
Mia Farrow is blind and she wants you to know it! She's going to stumble around and make so many fucking bizarre noises that you will think to yourself, that girl is certainly a blind woman in immense peril. Or maybe this is just a case of HORRIFIC OVERACTING in the service of a terrible, terrible movie, set out to take the least proactive handicapped heroine in movie history and torment the living hell out of her. Seriously, one titty flash on Sarah's part and this movie would have crossed the line from degrading to outright exploitative. Unfortunately, it's kind of hard to get worked up either way about her, because she's really a terrible character. She's fatally dull and whiny, and Farrow's awful British accent doesn't exactly ramp up the believability. I completely understand that a blind character wouldn't be doing karate backflips and beating the shit out of her assailants, but the high point of Sarah's ingenuity is making loud sounds with metal objects in the middle of a junkyard so that people hear her. Every other conflict she encounters is resolved with the intercession of another party. It's almost shameful.
So basically this is trash. I think maybe the director came into this with some decent ideas, most apparent in the quick editing and intense camera work, but there was no saving this dog. This isn't even worth seeing for Mia Farrow fans; as I see it, this is by far her worst performance ever.
