The Child's Eye (2010/Lionsgate 2D DVD)

Picture: B-     Sound: C     Extras: D     Feature: B-



Raine and her friends were just on a vacation in Thailand, that is until civil war broke out, shutting down all airports and leaving them stranded in the country.  The only place they can stay is in an old, run-down motel and to wait it out, but little do they know the motel is haunted, and a vengeful spirit doesn't like them there.  One by one they disappear; as they try to find their friends they realize the longer they stay there, more they are to become permanent residents.  Raine is also trying to find the chance to tell her boyfriend she is pregnant, then things go from bad to worse when a war breaks out and leaving them with no place to go but a run-down motel in The Child’s Eye.


At first things seem strange, three children and their dog looks at them if there is something horrible standing beside them, but they realize their fears, when their friends suddenly disappears they learn from the children about a tragic story behind the motel involving the motel's owner and former wife.  Now, Raine must find out exactly what happen to this husband and wife to break the curse and find and free her friends... before the evil spirit consumes them all.
If your friends were missing would you try find them or runaway?  If you like ghost stories then look no further, a tragic tale of love, lost and then madness.  A vengeful ghost who envies the living haunts a motel, things moving in the night, people disappear and only through eyes of a children and a dog can they be seen.  That sometimes the scariest thing is something that is right there, you can't see it, but you know it's there... waiting for you.


This was originally produced in 3D and was an all-digital shoot, but the 1.85 X 1 image resolves itself well enough here, though a 3D version might play better, but why was this not issued in 3D anywhere?  Maybe we’ll see it that way later, but the Dolby Digital 5.1 mix is on the weak side, though maybe a lossless track would help.  Extras include behind the scenes with interviews with cast and crew and trailer.
