Red Eye **** (2005, Rachel McAdams, Cillian Murphy, Brian Cox) – Classic Movie Review 4327


Taking her plane seat, Rachel McAdams finds herself next to creepy charmer Cillian Murphy, who soon terrorises her, threatening the death of her dad (Brian Cox) if she won’t co-operate in a senator’s killing.


It’s fun to watch McAdams fight back in director Wes Craven’s sweaty-palm, edge-of-seat, 2005 cat-and-mouse Hitchcock-style thriller, which, after a tense hour, goes into frenzied overdrive for its big finale.

McAdams and Murphy are word and note perfect, and Craven brings out everything that’s best in Carl Ellsworth’s story and screenplay.


Wes Craven (The Last House on the Left, The Hills Have EyesA Nightmare on Elm Street, Scream) died on aged 76.
