Indie Trailer Sunday: First Teaser for Creepy Mirror Horror 'Oculus'
"See the mirror hanging there, face of silver, frame of black, Oculus of glass, I stare… I can feel you staring back…" Today's indie trailer is for a horror film called Oculus that premiered at TIFF last year in the Midnight Madness category. The concept involves a cursed mirror of some sort, and a plot involving a brother and sister trying to figure out how their parents were killed. This first teaser gives quite an eerie, quick look at the horror that's in this, which is the just the right amount needed to convince me to see it and wonder why I haven't caught up with this already. This tease may give you a chill, but it's worth watching.
Watch the first teaser trailer for Mike Flanagan's indie horror Oculus, originally from Yahoo:
Years after the mysterious deaths of their parents, a traumatized brother and sister find the cause of their family tragedy: a cursed mirror whose 300-year history has left a bloody trail of destruction in its wake.
Oculus is directed by American filmmaker Mike Flanagan, of the films Makebelieve, Still Life, Ghosts of Hamilton Street and Absentia previously. The screenplay is by Mike Flanagan & Jeff Howard, based on the short film of the same name. The cast includes Karen Gillan ("Doctor Who", Outcast, Guardians of the Galaxy), Brenton Thwaites (The Signal), Katee Sackhoff (Riddick, "Battlestar Galactica", "24"), Rory Cochrane, Annalise Basso and Garrett Ryan Ewald. This first premiered at TIFF 2013. Poster here:
