Red Eye (http://www.redeye-themovie.com/) is the latest film from Wes Craven, creator of Freddie Kruger and the Scream films.

Most of the film is set on a flight from Dallas to Miami and the majority of the scenes take place in the very cramped double seats which see our main characters played by Rachel McAdams (Wedding Crashers) and Cillian Murphy (28 Days Later, Batman Begins) square off.

The scenes on the plane are fantastic and the acting is brilliant. The first hour of this film are up there with the best thrillers I have seen. Unfortunately the last 20 when the action switches to a house (that looks remarkably like the house in Scream) were very run of the mill and predictable. The chase scenes look remarkably like the chase scenes in Scream and the knife used by the bad guy looks remarkably like the one used in Scream (are you sensing the pattern yet?).

The ending was a shame as the main story is chilling and very well made.

First Hour - 9.5/10
Last 20 minutes - 5/10
Overall 7/10
