Note: The following text may contain spoilers

THE EYE is a US horror about a young blind violinist whose sight is restored only to leave her plagued by horrific visions.

Threat

With her sight restored, the protagonist witnesses frightening visions which range from dark, shadowy, flickering figures to more graphic images of people who have suffered violent deaths.

Disturbing images

There is one sequence depicting a suicide through hanging. Although the violence is self-inflicted, there is extended focus on the victim jerking and scrabbling at the rope around their neck during the sequence.

The film contains some mild bad language and obscured female nudity as a woman showers behind frosted glass.
