Los Ojos de Julia/ Julia´s Eyes (Spain 2010)

Julia (Belén Rueda) suffers a degenerative eye disease that is slowly robbing her of her sight. She realizes she will, eventually, end up like her twin sister Sara, who went blind long ago. However, Julia hopes not to share Sara's fate in one respect when Sara's found dead, hanging in her basement. While suicide seems like the most likely explanation, Julia suspects murder and, against her husband's wishes, decides to investigate into her sister's death, all the while racing against the clock of her increasing blindness.

Another foray into horror from prolific producer Guillermo del Toro, Julia's Eyes bears all the signs that we've come to expect from the projects of other filmmakers (in this case director Guillem Morales) that he has ushered into theaters: sleek, technically flawless production values, an intricately twisty story, and suspenseful set-pieces that ratchet up the tension. If you are still in the mood from the sibling dark carnivals of Halloween and Day of the Dead, joins for an evening of old-fashioned scares.
