While there are still no confirmed dates for the UK release of Mike Flanagan’s Oculus, it would be a crime not to share all the cool stuff being released in the US for the highly praised horror.
A short while ago a really creepy poster was revealed which had two hands covering the eyes of a woman (you can also see that poster below), and then recently the first trailer was revealed, and that too is below as a reminder, because the trailer was stunning.
Now a second poster has been released which may not be as creepy as the first, but the image is quite brilliant. It shows what appears to be Karen Gillan climbing out of a mirror. The marketing behind this film is really strong, and critics who have seen it are saying that Oculus is one of this years must-see horror films.
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…
