3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good Creepy Story August 9, 2014
By Speak
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
3 1/2 stars...dismiss the 1 star reviews AND the 5 star reviews; this movie isn't as bad or as good as those reviews make it out to be. It's got an interesting premise and a somewhat unique story, which alone sets it above most horror films produced today. It does take its time to set up its plot and develop its backstory, which I generally applaud as a good thing. Along they way, we are allowed a few jolts and creepy images to keep us on our toes. Unfortunately, the movie doesn't quite deliver an ending that's as satisfying as I would have liked, though not for a lack of effort.

The problem with Oculus lay in the fact that its premise was extremely ambitious and the screenwriters just couldn't keep up. It seemed that they bit off more than they could chew, which shouldn't be surprising given that the story's centerpiece was based on time manipulation. The filmmakers were victims of their own ambitions....they were able to build the story up masterfully, but could not deliver a climax that matched their efforts.

So, what's the verdict? Oculus is definitely worth a watch, if you're up for a creepy and interesting story.

Oculus is excellent psychological thriller that delivers the goods. Though the movie could have very well be rated PG-13, it does not reduce the impact of this well-written independent effort. The film is not of the splatter elk, but does have some blood. This ghost story surrounds a cursed mirror that messes with the minds of all who come near to it.

In 1951, the Robert Bloch story, "The Hungry House" was published. The television show, Boris Karloff's Thriller, had an episode based in this story called, "The Hungry Glass." Robert Bloch (the author of Psycho) would have enjoyed this movie. Intentional or not, it is the only homage to Robert Bloch's short story.

It is awesome to see a straight on horror film that depends on story rather than buckets of gore and pop out startles. Very enjoyable. It will make anyone wonder the next time they look into the mirror.

Both creepy and engaging, this time-distorting, psychologically driven ghost story weaves our protagonists' tortured past into their present with a shockingly smart script. Definitely the best killer mirror movie on the market, and a superior horror film overall as well!

POLARIZED REVIEWS: Other reviews' opinions seem to vary wildly, ranging from calling it poorly acted and carelessly written to praising it as fantastic across the board. I fell on the "pro" side of the argument and feel that those who were disappointed don't like to think about their horror (during the movie) as much as I do. After all, it is no rollercoaster nor is it really "exciting," so I see how some may bore of this.

Horror is a genre characterized by one-dimensional characters typified by hardly serviceably acting their way through flat writing to occupy the time until they drink, vandalize, have premarital sex, or do whatever it is that justifies their upcoming death. Despite this, filmmakers press on and we find the occasional pleasant surprise in The Cabin in the Woods (2012), The Conjuring (2013), or other films in which people actually cared about more than simply turning a profit and brought us new spins on classic tropes and even some entirely original ideas. I feel that Oculus is one of those refreshing films. Its scares number low and it's gore is nothing special, but the acting is phenomenal and the story execution is captivating, although tough to follow at times. More a product of deep and undeniable intrigue than dread, the tension mounts and really never loosens its grip until the closing credits are cast down the screen.

Tim (Brenton Thwaites; The Signal, Maleficent) and Kaylie (Karen Gillan; Doctor Who) had a seriously messed up childhood.

5.0 out of 5 stars An unexpectedly good, unique horror film August 3, 2014
Format:Blu-ray
Kaylie Russel and her brother Tim had a traumatic childhood. It was pretty normal up until they moved to a new house and their father bought an antique mirror with an ornate frame. Over time, their father was driven crazy by the mirror, murdered their mother, and tried to murder his children. Tim killed his father in self defense, but was convicted of murder and grew up in a mental institution. The day he left the institution, Kaylie puts into motion her plan to destroy the mirror and prove that supernatural forces manipulated her father. Unfortunately Tim has just completed his therapy and come to terms with the fantasy he and his sister created to cope with their father's insanity and attempt to murder them. Is the mirror really haunted or is it just a coping mechanism?

I wasn't expecting a lot from Oculus going into see it. The marketing was underwhelming and kind of cheesy, so I was braced for bad or at best, a cheesy yet fun film. Oculus is the most original horror film I've seen since You're Next. I loved every minute of it and it was a breath of fresh air compared to all the sequels, remakes, and rip-offs that clutter the genre. Oculus has 2 story lines: one in eleven years in the past where Kaylie and Tim witness their father going crazy and one in the present where Kaylie has planned to destroy the mirror with her brother as they promised when they were children. This film is kind of like a prequel with a sequel inside it. The stories are told in alternating segments that increase in intensity and horror as the film goes on until the two story lines actually intersect at the end of the film. It's very unexpected and well done thanks to the main antagonist, the mirror.

The mirror is a wonderfully creepy yet innocuous looking villain. By itself, it's not really anything.
