A mirror possessed of supernatural evil is coming to your home this summer: OCULUS, one of the year’s creepiest features, has been dated for multiple media, and you can find the complete info and disc art past the jump.
Directed by Mike Flanagan from a script he wrote with Jeff Howard (based on his previous short film), OCULUS hits digital HD July 29 and Blu-ray and DVD August 5. DOCTOR WHO’s Karen Gillan stars as a young woman who is convinced that an antique mirror was responsible for the deaths of her parents, and enlists her brother Tim (THE SIGNAL’s Brenton Thwaites)—who was convicted of the crimes, and has just been released from a mental institution—to help her prove it. The discs will present the movie in anamorphic 2.40:1 widescreen, with DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio on the Blu-ray and Dolby Digital 5.1 sound on the DVD. The special features are:
• Audio commentary by Flanagan and producer Trevor Macy
• Deleted scenes with optional commentary by Flanagan and Macy
• “Inside the Mirror: Creating OCULUS” featurette
• Original 33-minute OCULUS short film with optional commentary by Flanagan and Macy
• Theatrical trailer
Retail prices are $29.99 for the DVD, $39.99 for the Blu-ray. See our review of OCULUS here.
