Much-Hyped Horror ‘Oculus’ – Trailer

Oculus Trailer

You can summon Candyman with one, you can drive Kiefer Sutherland mad with one. Mirrors. They don’t just make you look fat, horror movies love them. Oculus is the latest mirror creepfest, emerging from festivals with glowing reviews and a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Watch the trailer and reflect on that.

Here’s the offical 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…

Starring Brenton Thwaites (Home and Away) and Karen Gillan (Dr. Who), this is directed by rising horror star Mike Flanagan. He’s expanding the half hour short he used to traumatise genre fans on the festival circuit five years ago. Here’s the old trailer for that –

Oculus is released 11th April in the US, 13th June in the UK. Find out where it placed in our rundown of the Top 25 Upcoming Horror Movies Of 2014.

    Well the trailer isn’t selling it to me. Seems a bit flat.

      I actually agree with you, I think the trailer is disappointingly by the numbers. But I’m always accused of being ‘too negative’ so left that point out. I prefer the raw look and set up of the original short film. However given the calibre of people praising it in Toronto I think it’s safe to say the full film is much better than the trailer suggests.
