Julia's Eyes (2010)


Film4, 12.55am

This stylish Spanish horror movie stars Belen Rueda (above) as Julia, a glamorous middle-aged woman who gets a terrible premonition about her twin sister, Sara.

Her fears turn out to be all too grounded when Sara is discovered hanging in her basement, having apparently committed suicide. Both women suffered from a congenital degenerative eye disease: Sara had recently gone blind, and the police decide this was the reason for her death.

But Julia is not convinced. She believes her sister was made of sterner stuff, and as she digs deeper she discovers that Sara had a boyfriend and had planned eye surgery. Not the attitude of a woman in despair, but as Julia gets closer to uncovering the truth her own eyesight starts to fail and she begins to suspect she's being stalked.
