    Synopsis


    Oculus
    Two siblings haunted by a childhood tragedy learn that the source of their horror is a mysterious mirror with a dark history. Tim (Brenton Thwaites) and Kaylie (Karen Gillan) were merely teenagers when both of their parents were brutally butchered. Convicted of the killings and sentenced to protective custody, Tim serves his time while Kaylie drifts into a deep despair. Years later, a newly free Tim does his best to lay the past to rest. Meanwhile, Kaylie is certain that her brother was innocent all along, and that the antique mirror their parents used to own holds the answer to her darkest questions. Upon locating the long-lost looking glass, Kaylie's deepest fears are confirmed -- a menacing force inhabits that mirror, and it has plagued every owner who has come into possession of it. Now, as curious Kaylie reacquires the mirror, the nightmarish cycle of horror returns with a vengeance. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      So before I decided to buy this I read the critic reviews on rotten tomatoes the reviews were decent so I decided to buy it when the price was just right. Overall I enjoyed the movie (I'm not really a huge fan of horror films for me they have to be really scary). For me this film worked in that it was more of a psychological type horror film the entire time I felt like I was on the edge of my seat. For me it felt kind of like the shining but instead of a possessed house it's a mirror. Karen Gillan is pretty good in it too. It's definitely one of those movies where you really have to pay close attention to because it jumps between past and present plus it keeps you guessing as to what is real and what isn't. (Personally I didn't have a problem following the story, but if you happen to be the kind of person who has difficulty following film plots that are structured this way then this isn't a movie for you). Overall I think it might be one of the best horror movies of the decade.

      Everything I've read about this movie before watching it, there is a very divided opinion regarding how this movie plays out. I'm glad I went into the movie not knowing too much about the plot as it kept me guessing, but I fall into the side that did not like how the movie ended. Seems like there were so many possibilities for how the movie would play out, and the ending is not what I expected, and not in a good way either. Regardless, the blu-ray transfer of this movie is top notch. Although a rather dark movie (light wise, not plot), blacks are strong, yet the image is impeccable. Surround sound will have you looking over your shoulder in fear, and voices are crisp and distinct through the whole movie. Come on Hollywood, let's actually put out some quality horror movies! Still worth a watch, might want to rent it first.

      Stupid but Suspenseful

      The story goes that there's a mirror that makes people see things and causes nothing but death and destruction. The main characters lives were dramatically altered when they were exposed to the mirror in their childhood and decide to take matters into their own hands, although one requires a bit of convincing. It's an exciting and interesting concept, to see them directly choose to face their fear and right the wrongs done to them, but you already know how its going to end before the movie even starts to pick up. Without spoiling anything, it's not a good idea to mess with something that can alter your perception utterly and completely.

      Oculus is a movie that does almost everything right. I wasn't aware of the details of the plot prior to seeing the film, and experiencing it in that manner allowed it to completely blow me away. Rather than relying on gore and jump scares, the filmmakers build up tension and dread from the beginning through the very satisfying ending. I really don't want to spoil anything about the film, so all I can say is that Oculus is absolutely worthy of joining any horror fan's collection. Also includes the original short film that inspired the film.

      Normally I don't buy flciks in this genre as I don;t think they hold up well when re-watching them down they road. However, I thought this was very well done and will hold up. Without throwing out any spoilers I thought it was well crafted and a unique way that the "Occulus" worked in. They stayed within the boundries of that story-telling realm and thus didn't create a bunch of unexplainable plot gaps. This is a good horror flick that I will watch again and would recommend as well (especially if you can get it on sale!!!).

      The beginning of the movie was really good. The story was credible, I wish they would have given the realatio ship with fiancée more time. I liked the relationship between brother and sister. The picture was too dark at times. I liked the movie overall but hoped the ending would have been scarier. Or that everyone would have died. It reminds me if ither ghost movies. When the son goes to hail at end it made me feel line the whole story was for nothing. It pretty much ended like it started, but with a couple more dead people.

      While this movie was presented as a horror flick, it is more of a thriller. I usually don't buy these types of movies because once you have seen it, you don't really need to see it again, but this one is different. I had walked out of the movie theater trying to figure it out and immediately wanted to watch it again. If you like movies like the Sixth Sense or other psychological thrillers, this is a good movie (the acting is also decent. You have to love James Lafferty from One Tree Hill and Karen Gillan from Selfie).
