The Eye (2002) - ( HONG KONG )

The Eye is a 2002 Cantonese horror film directed by Oxide Pang Chun And Danny Pang.

The Eye is a story of a blind girl who gets a cornea transplant so that she would be able to see again. However, she got more than what she bargained for when she realised she could even see ghosts. And some of these ghosts are down right unfriendly. So she embarks on a journey to find the origins of her cornea and to reveal the history of the previous dead owner ...

This movie has two remakes -

1.) Naina - Indian ( 2005 )
2.) The Eye - USA ( 2008 )

Naina , The indian remake - Its release caused controversy in India because its depiction of the protagonist seeing ghosts after receiving a Cornea Transplant was similar to existing fears in India surrounding corneal transplants and it was feared the film would discourage people from
donating cornea or seeking corneal transplants .

But in my opinion , the original one - Chinese version was the best . The scenes are not little scary but too scary . When i was watching this movie on my PC with headphones applied one scene from this movie really chilled me out .

Great horror to watch for and keeping in your collection .
