White Of The Eye Dual Format Short Review

3 stars for this bizarre and slightly surreal British thriller.White Of The Eye cover
White Of The Eye was first released in 1987 and this release represents the Worldwide debut on Blu-ray and UK debut to DVD.
It is written and directed by Donald Cammell (Demon Seed, Wild Side) and tells the story of Paul White (David Keith - U-571, Behind Enemy Lines) and his wife Joan (Cathy Moriarty - Casper, Analyze That), who live in the quiet town of Globe, Arizona.
White Of The Eye goldfish and pot roastAs the film opens, we see an eagle flying majestically over the landscape, until it gets to Tucson, where we see Goldwaters, a large department store being exited by what passed in the 80s for a posh housewife. As we follow her to her home we realize, to our horror, that someone is in the house! (We can tell this by the full screen eyeball watching us, and also by the bloke in gardening gloves putting a goldfish into the pot roast (I don't know, your guess is as good as mine).
A serial killer is on the loose and the hunt is on to catch him, before he can strike again.
