The Eye: 2-Disc Special Edition
Should you always believe what you see? Find out when Lionsgate and Paramount Vantage release the bone chilling, ghostly thriller The Eye: 2-Disc Special Edition on DVD and Blu-Ray Disc. Based on a film of the same name from the renowned Pang Brothers (Infernal Affairs), The Eye stars Jessica Alba as Sydney Wells, a woman who has been blind since a childhood tragedy. After undergoing surgery to restore her sight, she begins to see again. However, shortly thereafter, unexplainable shadowy and frightening images start to haunt her. Not knowing if they are an aftermath of surgery, her mind adjusting to sight, her imagination, or something horrifyingly real, Sydney is soon convinced that her anonymous eye donor has somehow opened the door to a terrifying world only she can see. The Eye: 2-Disc Special Edition DVD and 2-Disc Blu-Ray contain four featurettes – "Shadow World: The Paranormal Past," "Becoming Sydney," "Birth of the Shadowman" and "Dissecting a Disaster" plus deleted scenes and the theatrical trailer.
The Eye: 2-Disc Special Edition and The Eye: 2-Disc Blu-Ray both come with a standard-definition digital copy of the feature film for iTunes and Windows Media, providing a consumer-friendly way to transfer the feature film from a DVD to iTunes that can then be viewed on a PC or Mac®, iPod® with video, iPhone™ or on Apple TV®. The standard one-disc DVD of The Eye will include a Widescreen and Full Screen version of the film. The third film in the franchise from the Pang Brothers, The Eye 3 will be released by Lionsgate on June 24th. Please see below for more information on The Eye 3.

The Eye 3
The third film in the successful film franchise from the renowned Pang Brothers (Infernal Affairs), The Eye 3 has been called "one of the best Asian horror flicks this year" (Slasherpool.com). Arriving the same month as the American remake of the first film on DVD, The Eye starring Jessica Alba, The Eye 3 DVD special features include two featurettes "Ten Ways to See Ghosts" and "The Making of The Eye 3."
Some believe that our world is one of many, that our existence is merely an intersection between countless dimensions – known and unknown. We run into strangers we don’t see, hum tunes we don’t hear. Most of us remain ignorant, but there are always those who are a little different. They would risk everything to find the truth and for the thrill of seeing the other side just once in their lives. In the world of psychics, despite widely different rites and practices, there exists a single mutual void – the Rite of Eight – the last and most powerful resort to make contact with the spiritual world. No one seems to know its origin, but no one doubts its authenticity, because just like any other unsolvable myth, those who go there have never returned to testify.
Pricing: DVD $26.98
