'Oculus' Review

By Kristen Spicker,
Author Rating: 
3.5 Stars

The horror genre is an interesting one because of its ability to create films that deal with the supernatural; the purpose of these films is to scare and shock you. The latest film in the horror genre to attempt to do this is Oculus, which deals with the idea of a supernatural phenomenon causing people to do horrible things.

The film focuses on two siblings Kaylie and Tim Russell as they try to discover if a mirror was responsible for causing their parents to lose their grip on reality and do terrible things. One of the key elements of the film is the way it blends reality and imagination so we are not sure what is real and what isn’t, the same problem that is affecting the characters throughout the film.

Another element of the film that really impressed me was the way the film uses two different time periods. The film focuses on the present when Kaylie and Tim are 24 and 21 years old trying to discover the truth and it jumps between the past when they were 13 and 10 years old. The film does an excellent job in blending the two time periods and really makes you wonder what is reality and what is imagination. I even caught myself wondering what was actually reality and what they thought they were seeing.

The way that the film focuses on two major plots and how they are told in flashbacks really kept me interested throughout the film. I was a little skeptical before seeing the film about the idea of an antique mirror being the antagonist for the film, but after seeing the film I was impressed with how this movie held my attention. The film also delivers the usual scares but they do not come across as predictable and cheesy. The entire film has a very creepy feeling and it makes the film unpredictable and you are not exactly sure what is going to happen next.

I won’t give too much away about the film because I think it is worth watching, especially if you a are fan of horror and thriller movies. The film has been positively reviewed by critics so far as it has a 71% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The film also had a solid opening weekend taking in $12 million at the box office. Oculus is the perfect film if you are in the mood for a movie that delivers some good scares and an interesting story that keeps you guessing until the very end.
