Oculus

Oculus-2

Oculus is a fairly reliable b-grade horror about couple of kids trying to stop the malevolence of an ancient mirror that forces its owners to do evil, terrible things. Not much more to say than that really, except it’s worth a watch if you’re into this kind of thing. More interestingly though: I also realised that in Oculus, I’d just seen the first performances of two people we’re going to be hearing a lot of in future: Aussie Brenton Thwaites, who’s going to be absolutely huge – look out for him in the Cape Town-shot The Giver – and redhead Scottish Dr. Who alum, Karen Gillan, who’s already gone meteoric as angry, blue Nebula in last week’s Guardians movie. Watch this space on these two. Oculus filmed in Alabama and I can think of no good reason why.
