Doctor Who’s erstwhile companion, Karen Gillan, pits her science fiction background against a growing evil in Mike Flanagan’s “Oculus,” a film where the main villain is … a mirror? Well, it’s an old mirror. And let’s face it, if it’s old, it’s spooky and not to be trusted. Or at least, that’s what they taught me at the Old Things Are Not to be Trusted Academy.
Check out your first clip from “Oculus” below, check it outers.
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…
Also starring Brenton Thwaites, Rory Cochrane, and Katee Sackhoff.
