Haunted Mirror and Eeerie Imagery Tease “OCULUS”


Thanks to a fantastic response from last year’s TIFF, and of course the unsettling ABSENTIA, Mike Flanagan’s OCULUS is one of the most eagerly anticipated horror films of the year. Hitting this April, the tease has begun, and our first glimpse bears a storybook resemblance, introducing the viewer to the legend of this accursed artifact that haunts the film.

In OCULUS, Karen Gillan and Brenton Thwaites star as siblings who aim to confront past family trauma and its cause, the haunted 300-year old mirror. Katee Sackhooff co-stars in the film, Relativity releases this April 11. For more, see our Chris Alexander’s glowing review out of the Toronto International Film Festival.
