At the age of two, Mun went blind. After eighteen years in darkness, she is given the chance of a risky corneal transplant operation. When the bandages are taken off, Mun's eyes respond to the light around her and it appears that the surgery has been successful. However, when Mun experiences a series of inexplicable and chilling encounters with mysterious strangers, she fears that her newly restored eyesight has brought a different kind of darkness into her life. This fear is magnified when it also comes to light that Mun is not seeing her own face when she looks in the mirror, but that of a total stranger.

As this nightmare consumes her, she sets out to discover through whose eyes she is seeing the world, and before long finds a truth more horrifying than anything she could ever have imagined... Featuring some of the most genuinely terrifying moments ever seen on screen, as well as a finale more spectacular than anything to come out of Hollywood, this stylish and haunting film from the critically acclaimed Pang Brothers (Bangkok Dangerous) deserves its place at the forefront of modern horror cinema.

An excellent movie. A little scary because there are people who can predict the future whether good or bad. A must watch!

This is an excellent film. I don't know what is wrong with me but I did not find it in the least scary. Sure, horrific and at first mysterious things happen, but it all makes sense in the context of the movie. I read an article recently about transplant recipients suddenly developing passions and abilities of the donors, so it is not so far fetched.

Didn't realise it had sub titles. Don't like having to read the screen. Only watched first 15 minutes. Boring

I didn't realise this movie had sub-titles. Although I enjoyed the movie I wouldn't choose a movie with sub-titles again.

Not too bad but in the end predicatble I thought .. the idea has been done before by Hollywood a few timed and this didn;t particularly add anything new. Ususal good Japanese suspense elements and as alwys with Japanese horror a bit of a dodgy ending. PErhpas its a cultural thing I miss re: how they think a good horror should wind up. Still worth a look
