Close Examination of ‘Prometheus’ Footage Reveals Something Squirm Inducing

Depictions of severe eye trauma in movies really creeps me out, whether it’s the grueling close-up of a splinter impaling an eyeball in Zombi 2 or the underground eye replacement surgery in Minority Report.  I’d quite frankly rather watch someone’s head explode in slow motion.  I suspect I’m not alone in feeling that way.  I also suspect that director Ridley Scott realizes just how many people absolutely hate the idea of anything foreign going into, or coming out, of their eyes.
