The Eye 2 (2004)

Featuring Shu Qi in the starring role, the Pang Brothers strengthen their position on the cutting edge of the Hong Kong film industry with The Eye 2. Beautifully photographed, the sequel [in name only to the 2002 film] manages some real queasy stomach, spooky moments.

No transplant operations this time around, there are plenty of hospital scenes to keep the tension palpable. The clever screenplay delivers enough plot twists to keep the viewers on edge of their seats. This movie is extremely well produced; soundtrack and editing combine for a sublime experience.
