Storyline

This is the story of a young resourceful heroine named Lisa Reisert who hates to fly, but the terror that awaits her on the night flight to Miami has nothing to do with a fear of flying! Upon boarding the plane, Lisa is trapped on a red-eye flight with a creepy villainous handsome and charming man by the name of Jackson Rippner, who's playing middle-man in the plot to assassinate a Homeland Security official. He's got her father pinned down by a would-be killer, using that advantage to coerce Lisa into phoning the luxury resort where she works and arranging to move the target into a pre-set position. Written by Anthony Pereyra <hypersonic91@yahoo.com>

Trivia

(at around 14 mins) Both Wes Craven and Carl Ellsworth filmed cameos as airline passengers in the airport terminal. Wes Craven couldn't keep a straight face with his script supervisor Sheila Waldron, so their cameo wound up on the cutting room floor. Ellsworth's cameo remains in the final cut: three women are sleeping on the terminal seats and they all have their heads resting on the next ones shoulders, until the last one is sleeping on a man's shoulder; this is Carl Ellsworth wearing a green sweatshirt promoting the band Outkast.

A little breath of fresh air
16 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

"Red Eye" is all about Lisa (McAdams) who is simply trying to get home during a bad weather snarl at the airport and finds herself stuck on a red-eye and flying headlong into a suspense drama. A busy, fun little no brainer, "Red Eye" begins like a romcom, morphs into a suspense/action flick, and takes you on a simple-minded but entertaining girl power ride as Lisa races with the clock to save the day. Probably worth the price of a DVD rental, "Red Eye" will play best with fans of rising star McAdams and those who no brain it to avoid it's many nagging plot holes. Keep expectations real for maximum enjoyment. (B-)
