Oculus ***1/2

Now here is a fright flick that really delivers! This film totally flew under the radar. If you are a fan of scary horror movies and you have not seen this yet then you need to correct that soon. It is an intense thriller with a heck of a great story as well! The previews make it look like a generic haunted house movie. Yes it does have some clichés but it is so much more than that.

The film stars Karen Gillan as a young woman who is convinced that an antique mirror is responsible for the death and misfortune that her family suffered. As the film opens the young woman works at an Auction house which gives her access to the mirror so she can study it and potentially prove her theory. The story then intercuts with the past events in her life as her family was torn apart by supernatural forces.

Be warned that this movie is intensely freaky. I can’t wait to watch it again with friends to see their reactions.
