A ramshackle production even by the standards of Charles Band's low-rent Full Moon company. Scientist Grady (Jonathan Norman) is conducting tests with eyedrops and a device that will allow people to see into "the eighth dimension." In the process, he's neglected his wife, Rita (Jacqueline Lovell), who turns to hunky apartment house neighbors Tom (Dave Oren Ward) and Joe (Roland Martinez). Grady's experiments on a street kid (Ryan Van Steenis) result in the boy's death and spawns a huge creeping eye from the eighth dimension. Grady and his assistant, Morton (Costas Koromilas), dispose of the street kid's body, an act witnessed and abetted by Creepy Bill (Blake Bailey). Meanwhile, the eye has been busy hypnotizing and accosting Rita and Morton's wife, Jane (Nanette Bianchi), so Grady enlists Morton and Bill's help tracking the creature down. Shot on sets so cheap that doors and vents sometimes open to nothing but black drapes (and which don't look as though like they could possibly be contained by the building seen in exterior shots), KILLER EYE is an uneasy combination of sex, horror and attempted comedy. Why three writers were needed to assemble a script that simply throws a bunch of scenes together is hard to imagine and director David De Coteau (hidden behind the pseudonym Richard Chasen) seems more concerned with prurience than narrative development. The effects are tacky the killer eye's world is represented by a single static painting and the actors do what they can with their one-dimensional characters (which in Bailey's case involves a poor man's impression of Michael Keaton in 1988's BEETLEJUICE). Lovell and Bianchi look lovely in their copious nude scenes, which might seem gratuitous if everything else in KILLER EYE weren't equally pointless.
