Produced by Guillermo del Toro, Guillem Morales’s Spanish-language Julia’s Eyes will be premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival. Gearing up for the release, we’ve got our hands on the first subtitled trailer, along with a few new stills. The thriller tells the story of a woman slowly going blind as she investigates the mysterious death of her twin sister. Eyes is shot from Julia’s POV, so the scare tactics include panic attacks as the protag’s sight fails.
“Julia returns to Bellevue with her husband to visit her sister Sarah, who is near blind due to a degenerative illness for which she has unsuccessfully undergone surgery. When they arrive, Julia finds that Sarah has taken her own life and none of her mysterious neighbors seem to be all that surprised. Julia has to confront not only the loss of her sister, but also the loss of all hope halting her own impending blindness, as she suffers from the same illness and would appear to be destined for the same end as her sister.”
