Open your eyes to a bold new vision in gothic thrills and chills from acclaimed producer Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy).
When a young woman, suffering from a degenerative eye disease, discovers her twin sister hanged in the basement of her house everything points to suicide. Itched by other suspicions Julia (Belén Rueda, The Orphanage) decides to investigate what she intuitively feels is a murder case and embarks on a dark journey where the emanating light is literally fading to a flicker at the tunnel’s twisted end. As Julia begins to uncover the terrifying truth about her sister’s death, her sight deteriorates, blurred between a series of unexplained disappearances, deaths and her own desperate struggle for survival.
With a knowing nod to classic Hitchcock, Argento and De Palma Julia's Eyes is a chilling new chapter in Spanish shock cinema.
