All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Oculus (2014)

Starring: Karen Gillan, Katee Sackhoff, Rory Cochrane, Brenton Thwaites
Director: Mike Flanagan

A honorific incident happened to a brother and sister that resulted in the death of their parents. Years later when the brother is released from a mental institution, his sister makes him keep the promise to find out what happened and to prove an old mirror is the real evil.

My Take:
A slick movie which seamlessly blends the situation of the past with the current situation as the two siblings try to recall what happened and what is currently going on. Is this old mirror actually cursed and responsible for the deaths or is it all there heads. The editing is superb and makes the viewer focus on every frame to figure out what is going on. Another solid effort from a talented movie making team.

Rating: So Good
