The Killer Eye (1998)

Nomination Year: 2000
SYNOPSIS:  A mad opthamologist is developing eye drops which will allow vict--er, subjects to peer into the 8th Dimension (don't ask me what happened to the other 3 or 4 dimensions). Instead, he unleashes a freakish giant eyeball, which roams around, hypnotizing people and forcing them to engage in various sexual acts.

Most Ludicrous Premise

¬°Eye Carumba!
The principals are together, and they give a good summary exposition scene (see plot synopsis).

Smithee Award Winner! Oblivious

The Treadmill Scene
How can she be so blind? The large eye is right behind her as she fails to see it from her peripheral vision. She doesn't even feel its eye-stalk-ganglia-limb things as they brush against her calves on the treadmill. Then she turns (turns! presumably shifting her peripheral vision) and walks off.

Smithee Award Winner! "Let's Up The Rating To 'R'"

Let's Up the Rating to "I"
The eye has a sort-of tantric electrical tentacley sex with a woman in the shower.

Stupidest-Looking Monster

The Stupidest-Looking Floating Giant Eyeball Around
How to describe this? I like to envision it as an animate mound of spaghetti (the eyeball ganglia limb things) with a big meatball (the eye) on top. That's not entirely inaccurate, but you pretty much have to see it....

Worst Science

What's Half a Hermaphrodite?
These eye drops will allow someone to see into the 8th dimension. Oh, and by the by, the eye is a hermaphrodite, but yet male, because only half came through the portal and...ARRRGH!

Worst Picture

His Experiments in the 8th Dimension Go Awr-Eye
The eye floats around and makes people have sex.
