  1. Will keep you awake, jittery and perched on the edge of your seat for pretty much the entire flight.
  2. 88
    The gripping, seat- clutching suspense in this baby will pin you to your seat.
  3. A good measure of the movie's white-knuckle fun comes from Craven's old-hand familiarity with the way thrillers tick.
  4. With so much going for it, it's sad that Red Eye goes into such a third-act tailspin and cliched slasher-flick finale.

    In an age of over-saturated and exhausted thrillers, Wes Craven is able to bring us a much needed fresh one. Red Eye isn't the typical Wes Craven-horror flick, it's much more. Cillian Murphy is devastatingly good and Rachel McAdams is charming as ever. Full Review »

    Red Eye is a cool thriller about a hotel employee who gets wrapped up in a conspiracy. The acting is
    clever and Wes Craven proves with this
    movie that he hasn't lost his thrilling touch. Full Review »
