Halloween Disc-A-Day: Day 24 – Red Eye

For a third year, I’m going to be watching at least one horror DVD per day and writing a short review about them. I’ve acquired a new batch that I haven’t previously seen, so without any further delay. Let’s get to work.

Red Eye (19 August 2005)

A woman is kidnapped by a stranger on a routine flight. Threatened by the potential murder of her father, she is pulled into a plot to assist her captor in offing a politician.

I remember seeing the trailer for this and thinking that Killian Murphy was a supernatural threat of some kind.  Maybe it was because of the red flash they put over his asshole face.  It’s basically a terrorism plot and a bit of stretch to label it as horror, but couldn’t you say that terror is the real horror?  I guess not.  These are blind watches.  Cut me some slack.  I swear some of these movies have to be actual horror movies.  Anyway, this is one of the few Wes Craven movies I had not seen yet and honestly I think it’s one of his best.  I’m keeping this brief, because this one is good enough that we talk about it on MPM in the future.

If you’d like to hear us talk about Killian Murphy and his asshole face, you can do that in the Motion Picture Meltdown episode on Sunshine.  Be sure to come back tomorrow as we enter the final week of October.
