31 Nights of Horror, Night 5: Oculus
Fair warning… I’m traveling for work and typing on my iPhone so forgive my brevity and errors.
Three sentences review:
I’ve been more freaked out by mirrors reflecting my own face (especially after a long night of drinking) than the “evil” mirror featured in Oculus. The plot follows a brother and sister who reunite after 10 years (the brother spent the decade in a mental hospital, the sister is the girl from “Selfie”) and film themselves trying to prove that an old mirror killed their parents because it possessed their father. The mirror gets its strength from house plants and puppies which clues you into the level of ridiculousness but it stars Rory Cochrane so at least you get to recite some quotes from Empire Records in your head.
