This is a post-Scream/post-Blair Witch claustrocore horror thriller about three guys and two gals stuck in a mansion, whose every move are being filmed for a webcast. It doesn’t get more modern than My Little Eye, but modernity, today, doesn’t lead to timelessness. This isn’t the type of movie that ages well. Additionally, the script is rather juvenile. The dialogue is just uncomfortable.
The use of hidden cameras is fascinating, until you realize that cameras are also mounted on pens and installed in the weirdest places. Found footage films had an obvious influence on My Little Eye, for all the bad reasons. It is still worth your attention, though, if only for the ambiance. Some characters are bland, some sympathetic. Lose some, win some.
Things gets convoluted passed the halfway mark. The plot stretches to unreasonable lengths. We’re never certain what is a prank and what is a menace. We don’t know who the antagonists are. There are several red herrings and whodunit vibes, but no way to predict how it’ll all end. This is a well-made production with good pacing and photography, but a retarded third act.
