    Engaging in plot and simple in its intensity, Red Eye is terrifying and absorbing simultaneously, hammering at the audience without remorse. Bravo, Wes Craven.

    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.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Very good execution of the story. It was very believable and gripping. Cillian Murphy was the perfect bad guy and Rachel McAdams was the perfect victim. My favorite part was when Rachel McAdams escaped and Cillian Murphy was chasing her through the airport. Very well made and very entertaining thriller. Expand

    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.

  1. Red Eye has a devilish charm. It pulls just about every nail-biting, edge-of-your-seat trick imaginable, yet gets away with it through what is, admittedly, a clever and original gimmick.

    Departing less from his horror bailiwick than he did with "Music Of The Heart" in 1999, Wes Craven retains shocks but dispenses with scares in the negligible Red Eye.

    Craven's terror-alert white-knuckler is zippy, unpretentious.
