It's always nice for horror fans to get solid genre entries on the big screen rather than increasingly prevalent VOD platforms. Brought to you by the producers of Paranormal Activity and Insidious, it seems like this Oculus film might actually get a decent release.
I'm not the biggest horror guy, but Oculus looks like an interesting haunted object entry. It may not appear to have much in the way of gore, but it does have Karen Gillan and Rory Cochrane, so that's something. Plus, people seemed to really enjoy the film when it showed at last year's Toronto International Film Festival. Here's an official synopsis:
Ten years ago, tragedy struck the Russell family, leaving the lives of teenage siblings Tim and Kaylie forever changed when Tim was convicted of the brutal murder of their parents. Now in his 20s, Tim is newly released from protective custody and only wants to move on with his life; but Kaylie, still haunted by that fateful night, is convinced her parents’ deaths were caused by something else altogether: a malevolent supernatural force unleashed through the Lasser Glass, an antique mirror in their childhood home. Determined to prove Tim’s innocence, Kaylie tracks down the mirror, only to learn similar deaths have befallen previous owners over the past century. With the mysterious entity now back in their hands, Tim and Kaylie soon find their hold on reality shattered by terrifying hallucinations, and realize, too late, that their childhood nightmare is beginning again...
The ellipsis means some crazy shit is going to go down! Maybe! We'll find out when the film comes April 11.
