At the end of January, the first poster for Mike Flanagan's Oculus (coming April 11th) was dropped. Now there's a new one that just hit, and it's as creepy as the first.
Ten years ago, tragedy struck the Russell family, leaving the lives of teenage siblings Tim and Kaylie forever changed when Tim was convicted of the brutal murder of their parents. Now in his 20s, Tim is newly released from protective custody and only wants to move on with his life; but Kaylie, still haunted by that fateful night, is convinced her parents' deaths were caused by something else altogether: a malevolent supernatural force unleashed through the Lasser Glass, an antique mirror in their childhood home. Determined to prove Tim's innocence, Kaylie tracks down the mirror, only to learn similar deaths have befallen previous owners over the past century. With the mysterious entity now back in their hands, Tim and Kaylie soon find their hold on reality shattered by terrifying hallucinations, and realize, too late, that their childhood nightmare is beginning again...
As I said in the last news piece, I'm a huge fan of the original short Oculus - Chapter 3: "The Man With the Plan", and I'm very excited for this film. I've been waiting for a full-length feature since 2009, and after watching Absentia, I know Flanagan has the ability to terrify. Hurry up, April!
