Oculus, is an upcoming horror movie scribed by director Mike Flanagan, with a spine chilling story revolving around the twisted fate of two siblings and a mystifying mirror.
Ten years ago, Tim was convicted for the brute murder of his parents. Now, when he’s released, all he wants is to put the tragic events from his childhood behind him and get on with his life. His sister, Kaylie, on the other hand, is still haunted by the events, and convinced that an evil force, dwelling in a mirror from their childhood, is the one to blame for their parents brutal death not Tim.
In the roles of Tim and Kaylie, we see Karen Gillan (Amy Pond in Doctor Who) and Brenton Thwaites (Blue Lagoon: The Awakening). The cast also consist of Garrett Ryan from Insidious: Chapter 2 and Katee Sackhoff, who is known for Captain Kara ‘Starbuck’ Thrace, in Battlestar Galactica.
I find the fast phased trailer, with the overlay of the talking girl, to be quite enthralling, leaving an eerie feeling behind. Have a look at the trailer below and see what you think about it. Also, if the trailer gives you some Insidious-vibes, it’s not that strange since it’s the same producers behind this one. Oculus will hit the theaters later this year, on April 11.
