The Eyes is a 2014 supernatural horror film. It is about a cursed poem that lies in an abandoned house in a field. When the storyline was revealed, it was compared to the 2002 horror film The Ring. The movie will be released through Horrific Pictures Studio and will premiere June 13, 2014. It is a mixture of Nightmare on Elm Street and The Ring. The movie was a big success and spawned two sequels, "The Eyes: Darkness" in January 2015 and "The Eyes: Confrontation" in June 2016, as well as a prequel "Eye" due for late 2017.
Ellie-May (Rapsta Chik) is a teenage girl, but something is off about her. For the past two weeks she has been scared of something, and has only confided in one friend about it. Ellie-May has 3 hours to live, and sure enough she dies. After her sister Janice (Amara) finds her dead, across the road Ellie-May's best friend Deborah (Sarah Muntz) is also found dead. At the funeral Janice and her boyfriend Tyler (Robbie Amell) and her friend Farrah (LaQuaria Ghetti) decide to take matters into their own hands and investigate. But along the way, they find a poem said to be cursed, they read it and they get a text telling them they have two weeks to live, exactly like Ellie-May. Can Janice save everyone before the two week deadline is up?

The film was announced in the late Fall/early Winter of 2013. So far two trailers have been released. On May 25, 2014 the opening scene of the movie was released.
The opening scene begins with Ellie-May seemingly having phone sex with Janice's boyfriend Tyler, until she looks at the clock and tells Tyler to stop. Ellie-May starts freaking out and tells Tyler that she got a text from an unknown number saying she had two weeks to live after she read a poem, and that she is three hours away until the two weeks are up. Tyler calls Ellie-May crazy and hangs up, but looks kind of worried. Ellie May then goes to sleep and the scene goes into her dream. In her dream she is going around the house very worried, she opens the door to the bathroom and washes her hands. She looks in the mirror and a ghostly creature is seen in the mirror briefly. It then zooms out the dream as Ellie-May is screaming with her eyes turning black and her face turning white, the title card of the movie then appears.
On June 6, 2014 a short film prequel called "Eye" was released, it will be included on the DVD release of The Eyes.
