Five young people apply to live in an isolated house together for six months whilst their every move is filmed by numerous cameras. Each has their reason for wanting to be there - fame, money, adventure. The prize - $1 million. The rules - if one person leaves, everyone loses. It becomes the ultimate morality test. When Danny's beloved grandfather dies, does his greed overcome his love? When the skittish Emma finds blood on her pillow why does she still stay behind? And what dark secret does the house harbour that leaves them feeling as though they're being watched by more than just a million pairs of eyes? Written by
Director Marc Evans was worried that if My Little Eye (2002) flopped at the box-office (like his previous two films), it would be the end of his directing career. Luckily for him, that didn't happen. After an initial lukewarm response, the film became a surprise sleeper hit. See more »
When the sheriff enters the basement we can see he leaves the door open. When it cuts to wide shots we can see in both wide shots that the door is closed. Then it appears open again later. See more »

It's got a broken wing.
[he breaks its neck, the others look disgusted]
It was the kindest thing to do.

The production logos have a fuzzy quality to them, like we're seeing footage through a webcam. The five housemates are shown over the end credits. See more »
I was quite pleasantly surprised by MY LITTLE EYE. I had never heard of it or anything about it when I saw it so I really didn't know what to expect, but I definitely didn't expect to like it as much as I did.
The basic story: 5 kids in an isolated house in the snowy mountains in the middle-of-nowhere, have to stay there for 6 months to win $1 million for some internet "reality" program. All of their necessities are brought to them anonymously, and they have no idea where they are, and judging by the surroundings - wouldn't be able to go anywhere even if they did. The tension builds slowly as we meet up with the kids at the tail end of the 6 months. Weird things begin to come from their anonymous deliverers, and paranoia soon sets in among the cast-members.
MY LITTLE EYE is a pretty unique thriller, all of the action is shot from the surveillance cameras that are meant to monitor the cast members, giving all the shots a strange feel. Some of the shots done in "night-vision" are really weird and creepy. Add to this a really good twist ending and you have a very solid film. Definitely one to check out - 8.5 out of 10
