NOTE: This film is part of a unique collaboration between Amazon and Blumhouse Television. The two studios have released four films over the last two weeks, and are doing several virtual party screenings called "Welcome to the Blumhouse" through Fantastic Fest and Fangoria.
A mother's instincts are always right. Trust your mother. Listen to your mother. These are all phrases we've heard all of our lives, but when it comes to love we tend to ignore mom.
The lesson from this film is do not ignore your mother.
Just like the other three films in this collection, this isn't a jump-scare, slasher style horror flick. Instead, this is a creepy thriller similar to films like SLEEPING WITH THE ENEMY. What makes this unique is that it uses Indian culture and beliefs to tell a story we've seen many times in a new way.
This film is a slow burn, but when the fire gets going it doesn't let up. It is an intense, hold-your-breath story that will keep you glued to your couch while you eat all of the popcorn.
If you are looking for a fun thriller to get you into the Halloween mood, EVIL EYE will not disappoint.
