Synopsis
Picking up where the multitudes of late '90s/early 2000s reality-based television shows left off is the unexpectedly shocking horror film My Little Eye, from director Marc Evans. Five twentysomethings are assembled to live together for a period of six months in a house specially outfitted with a bevy of webcams in order to collect a one million prize. The one major caveat being if anyone abandons the house prior to the end of the six-month period, no one will win anything. After introducing the different characters -- intelligent Danny (Stephen O'Reilly), slacker Rex (Kris Lemche), frat boy Matt (Sean CW Johnson), good girl Emma (Laura Regan), and actress wannabe Charlie (Jennifer Sky) -- the story jumps ahead to the last few days before the scheduled end of the contest. At this point, it becomes apparent that outside forces are somehow manipulating certain events within the house, and the household is sent into chaos as one of the participants is found dead. Another participant receives an ominous note, and shortly thereafter, the remaining participants begin to realize the true intensity of their mortal peril. My Little Eye premiered at the 2002 Locarno International Film Festival. ~ Ryan Shriver, All Movie Guide

what annoying characters by jwilliam May 5, 2008 - 6:10 PM PDT

Although this has several smart plot points and some interesting camera work, it makes the supreme error of featuring five highly annoying protagonists. They rotate between self-absorbed, shallow, and rock stupid. Tension never materialized because I simply did not care what happened to any of these people, and the characters' numerous and idiotic decisions gutted the plot of believability.

This little horror gem is definitely worth a watch. The story keeps you guessing, and the final meltdown for all the characters will leave you cringing. Not your average horror flick, don't expect a happy ending, or any sort of tidy "wrap-up" (but it is also not constructed to pave the way for future sequels). It leaves you reflecting on the twisted implications of our "reality" obsessed pop culture. Not for the faint of heart, or for people who want to innocently enjoy the latest episode of "Big Brother." This movie forces you to look beyond the surface of things.

The less you know about MY LITTLE EYE going into it, the better it'll seem, so I can't really say much more. Except that the very things that may appear to be mistakes in the script turn out to be completely understandable if you stick with this clever and extraordinarily unsettling movie. Appearing at first artless, by the final frame, it's clear how very artful--if nasty--this film really is, while showing up "Blair Witch Project" as simple, overrated nonsense. The movies I'd most compare it to are Olivier Assayas' "Demonlover" and Michael Haneke's "Funny Games." This one is very different in style and story, but it is every bit as--perhaps even more--unnerving. Bravo, I say, with a wince and a shudder.
