So from my experiences, the original versions of theses from Japan, China, or wherever are usually better. But I will give Jessica Alba props on this one. She convinced me on this one. This movie wasnt overly scary but did have several shiver moments for me. The goosebump types.

The Eye remake is a pointless and unnecessary remake of Jian Gui. Jessica Alba delivers yet a bad performance here, and one that makes you ask the question, why is she even given roles in movies? She's a terrible actress, and in The Eye remake she is most certainly that. The Eye ...

I can see why people panned this one. I don't remember the original being up to a whole heap either, though (although I rented that one so long ago I am sure it was still on video tape, so as you can imagine, don't have a strong memory of it). This was passable, for what it wa...
