A nasty piece of work, but we probably deserve it.
Witless and utterly pointless.
Its excellent films like "My Little Eye" that come out of nowhere that keep my eyes on the low-budget horror film circuit constantly.
A spiffy, high concept horror movie about webcams, isolation, and spooky guys coming in from the cold.
My Little Eye is simple little story and a sharp exercise in style that could have done with a stronger script. But it's nonetheless effective.
MY LITTLE EYE is the best little "horror" movie I've seen in years.
Not only does the movie fail to make us part of its reality, it fails the most basic relevancy test as well.
... an unimaginative, nasty, glibly cynical piece of work.
Barely manages for but a few seconds over its seemingly eternal running time to pique your interest, your imagination, your empathy or anything, really, save your disgust and your indifference.
O ótimo esforço do diretor acaba sendo frustrado pelo roteiro, que, depois de levar um bom tempo para colocar a trama em andamento, perde-se de vez a partir do instante em que os estranhos acontecimentos são explicados.
Marries the amateurishness of The Blair Witch Project with the illogic of Series 7: The Contenders to create a completely crass and forgettable movie.
It's still far scarier than 99% of Hollywood's offerings; it's just a pity Evans had to resort to their clichés.
Marc Evans' My Little Eye offers some very intriguing twists to the documentary style of horror which has been ruthlessly exploited of originality in more recent years. It borrows numerous elements from The Blair Witch Project but crucially it offers imagination, incredibly creepy sets, real smarts and challenging pacing that cranks up the tension. As the plot is slowly progressed further into unsettling weirdness, the characters become more likable and the horror plays out very effectively. Although the typically bland dialogue destroys any chance at character development the strong performances and Evan's hypnotic style of directing holds everything in place and from that it actually ends up going somewhere. I think that there is an underlying subtext to the film expressing hatred for reality TV in how we enjoy watching everyday people experience differing form of mental trauma and humiliation on screen or in this case via the Internet. Although some of the twists tend to be predictable and the script is sometimes weak it made me bite my nails more than Paranormal Activity or any of the recent "found footage" outings and is overall a real classic of the sub genre. The visually yucky quality of the gore and Evans' decision to allow the narrative to really take it's time adds to the thrills of watching it. I love this film, but the ending has understandably split opinions. A character in it's finale describes "the company", which is something often discussed by the group of protaganists, and reveals some expected/unexpected information about what, where, who and why it is. In a way the speech was cheesy, but it was an absolutely spine tingling conclusion to the madness of the story. A little horror film which has been unforgivably forgotten. Scary, funny, under rated and a real creepy eye opener.
Total garbage. The characters are undeveloped. The storyline is predictable. The horror is non existent.
Entertaining enough I guess. The end was predictable and not very exciting.
"I'm in it for the money. What's your excuse?"
"My Little Eye" was an original piece of work at its release date. The film mixed the reality TV and horror genres together, resulting in a surprisingly good movie.
The story skips the character development and goes directly to the last week of their 6 month stay in the house. If they manage to stay in the house they win 1 million USD's. But the competitors are so terribly wrong, this ain't no Big Brother bullshit..!
"My Little Eye" was easy to predictable at times but it gave some good shockers. The final 30 minutes delivered twists that you could never have imagined. The film also has a creepy atmosphere that helps build up the tension.
The camerawork is something that all reality TV fans will probably not have any difficulties to adjust. I especially liked the night vision photography.
Fans of the horror genre should take a look at this movie. It wasn't that well advertised but I do think that if you're into horror movies, you've at least heard of this.
As a curiosity I recommend you to check out the special features of the DVD. Some good interactive stuff there.
