New Release: The Child’s Eye DVD

The Child's Eye movie scene

Rainie Yang and her pooch feel the terror in The Child's Eye.

The Child’s Eye, the fourth installment of the Hong Kong horror-thriller franchise The Eye that was launched by The Pang Brothers (Bangkok Dangerous) nearly a decade ago, arrived on DVD from Lionsgate on Oct. 11, 2011, for the list price of $26.98.

Just as they directed The Eye (2002), The Eye 2 (2004) and the bafflingly titled third film in the trilogy The Eye 10 (2005), The Pang Brothers (Oxide and Danny) are back behind the camera as the directors of 2010’s The Child’s Eye, which focuses on a group of friends who find themselves stranded in Thailand after unexpected airport closures. Unfortunately, they have no choice but to stay at the Chung Tai Hotel, an old, rundown and way-creepy building. As the group uncovers the history behind the hotel’s walls, they’re slowly drawn into its horrific past. And the more sinister, unusual things they discover, the more their minds and bodies are taken over by the hotel’s permanent residents. Terror ensues…

The Child’s Eye was released in theaters in Hong Kong and Singapore last fall as a 3D movie. It premiered in the U.S. on DVD, but not in 3D, so don’t expect any blood or eyeballs to be squirting out at you as you watch.

Presented in Cantonese with English subtitles, the DVD includes behind-the-scenes footage and cast and crew interviews as bonus features.

Here’s the trailer for the movie, with subtitles:
