Movie Info

Visionary Asian horror directors the Pang Brothers offer another disconcerting look at the spirits of the dead in this sequel to their international hit The Eye. Joey Cheng (Shu Qi) is a woman who has been given to deep mood swings, which isn't helped by the fact her relationship with her boyfriend, Sam (Jesdaporn Pholdee), is crumbling. In a moment of despair, Joey takes an overdose of sleeping pills in an apparent suicide attempt. Joey survives the incident, but discovers that she's pregnant with Sam's child, putting her in another difficult situation. Joey decides to keep the baby, but she soon discovers another strange side effect of her brush with death -- she can now see ghosts, especially when she's in the presence of children and pregnant women, and is frequently haunted by the spirit of a women attempting to kill herself near a railroad track. As the ghost begins visiting more and more often, Joey becomes convinced the spirit wants to enter the body of her unborn child. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Audience Reviews for The Eye 2 (Gin gwai 2)

  • Jan 22, 2011
    Wasn't a fan of the first on, actually not much of a fan of Japanese horror at all, but I really did like this. The acting was pretty good and I really like how reincarnation was used to help develop the story involved. A couple of jumps, but it was more mood than horror. Worth giving a chance too, I almost didn't because I didn't care for the first one.

    An interesting concept and some truly eerie images and scenes but parts of it were just bordering on the ridiculous when I don't think that was the intent. Really too bad because I was quite into it for the first little while but it just completely fell apart.

    more like the viewer goes mad trying to make sense or enjoy this movie. Cheap shocks and an incoherent script, at least you have Shu Qi to look at.

    Not that bad. But very inferior to the original. Beautiful ending.
