My Little Eye tells the tale of five young adults who decide to take part in a Big Brother type reality show that is broadcast over the Internet. The broadcast will go on for six months, and at the end they will receive $1 million in prize money. They are placed in this big, creepy house within a fenced in area, and if any of them leave before the scheduled end date, none of them will receive the cash prize. Near the end of the broadcast, troubling occurences start popping up. While some are deeply effected by the events, others believe it is just the company behind the broadcast trying to get them to leave so they won't win the cash. Things gradually begin to get much more serious, and the group begins to realize that something truly sinister may be going on. After hearing about this film, I was very anxious to see it. It sounded like something I'd thoroughly enjoy, and I jumped at the chance to get the R2 SE when it was first released a little over a year ago. The film did not disappoint me at all. The characters are pretty likable, and the actors portraying them all do wonderful jobs. Kris Lemche of Ginger Snaps fame is perfect as the wiseass of the group, Rex. He pulls the role off perfectly with a wonderfully sly sense of sarcastic wit, and a softer side seemingly aimed towards Charlie in particular, who is played very well by the extremely gorgeous Jennifer Sky. He gives off a vibe that he has feelings for her, yet can't seem to get himself to tell her how he really feels. Its a nice little inclusion that adds a bit to his character, and comes off as rather sweet. I can't blame him for having a thing for her either, because as I said, she is gorgeous, not to mention very charming. Its a real shame that Sky isn't in more movies. Laura Regan, from the underrated They, is pretty much the lead as Emma, and she pulls off the role very nicely. She is quite compelling in the film, and she's great at playing frightened to boot. The other two people in the house are average guy, Matt (Sean Cw Johnson), and the shy and sort of odd Danny (Stephen O'Reilley). Johnson is great in his rather subtle role, and he does quite fantastic with the directions his character takes in the film. O'Reilley plays the quiet, oddball role well, and his ill fated crush on Emma gives him some nice inner conflictions to work with. The film is wonderfully shot. We get many different angles from the various cameras in and around the house, and the colors in the film are quite nice to say the least. I especially like the scenes at night where the cameras are taping the group in this greenish, tinted color in which the characters eyes are caused to "glow". Very cool looking if you ask me. The many angles are also always inspired and interesting, and I loved how the film was shot in such a manner at times. The house is a pretty creepy setting, and some of the occurences are pretty damn eerie. Emma's story from her past which she is prompted to tell because of one of the events is really eerie in and of itself, and it adds a further sense of unease to the film and its storyline. There is also always a feeling of something evil watching them, and of course, its only reinforced by the many cameras. Many very intriguing suspicions are raised throughout the film as well, and they make an already beyond interesting film all the more interesting. The film literally oozes mood and atmosphere, and its quite bleak as well. The reality style plot is used to absolute perfection. There are many wonderful twists, and the story also seems to serve as an anti-reality show device with all the effects the broadcast is having on the characters, and all the dark occurences throughout the film. It also makes perfect use of the reality programming as vile exploitation idea, and the reality style adds so much more creepiness to the plot. This film quite literally blew me away when I first saw it, and I watch it quite often. Its a definite new all time favorite of mine. A creepy, disturbing, at times touching, and very well done gem to put it lightly, and the DVD is by far one of the crowning DVDs of my extensive collection. I highly recommend this film to anyone who hasn't seen it, and that's putting it lightly! The transfer on this DVD is excellent. I've watched it several times, and can honestly find zero problems with it. The really picky person would be the only type I'd expect to have any problems with the transfer. The 5.1 audio is used to wonderful effect as well, and serves to really immerse me in the film whenever I pop it in. This film has some great sound effects throughout too, so this track being up to par is a must, and thankfully it is. The audio commentary with director Marc Evans and producer Jon Finn is one of the most interesting ones I've listened too. Tons of interesting information about the shoot throughout, as well as some of the intentions with certain aspects of the film. One of my favorite commentary tracks. The interactive browser mode that is unique to this DVD is a very cool and obviously unique feature. Not everyone would like it I figure, but I think its a great little gimmick, and adds some definite fun and style to the disc. You can access many features with this mode, from the characters audition tapes to the ability to view certain scenes from different cameras. That's only the tip of the iceberg too. Truly great stuff! The rest of the extras are on disc two. The making of featurette is very interesting, and far from your average fluff piece. There's also 9 deleted scenes, all of which are must sees to any fan of this film. A few of them shouldn't have been deleted IMO. All have optional director/producer commentary by the way. Rounding the set out is a gallery, the theatrical trailer, teaser trailer, and a few TV spots. This film is one of my absolute favorites, and combined with the truly awesome features on this disc, this is easily one of the best sets in my collection. Such a great film, and a DVD that is actually worthy of it!
