Earlier today the first rather creepy poster was revealed for Mike Flanagan’s highly anticipated new horror, Oculus, and now finally comes the very chilling yet quite restrained teaser trailer.
Short, sweet, unnerving and brilliantly restrained, the teaser trailer shows us that Oculus is going to be one hell of a horror film. The atmosphere conjured up in just over a minute here is very impressive, and with early reviews already praising this film, Oculus is set to be one of the years biggest low budget horrors.
Oculus has now been granted a US theatrical release, and the film will hit US cinemas on April 11th 2014.
Written and directed by Mike Flanagan (Absentia), Oculus stars Karen Gillan, Katee Sackhoff, James Lafferty and Rory Cochrane.
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…
