Movie Review: Oculus

This weekend I finally watched “Oculus,” long after its April 11 release. After tragedy struck the Russell family, the lives of teenage siblings Tim and Kaylie changed forever. Tim was convicted of murdering their parents, and then is released from protective custody while in his twenties. He wants to move on, but his sister Kaylie has other plans. She is still haunted by what happened and wants to get back in the house to prove her brother’s innocence. A supernatural force that was brought through the laser glass, antique mirror that was in the home caused the murders of their parents.

As I watched “Oculus,” it was kind of confusing, jumping between past and present frequently, leaving me to question what was real and what was not. It had a lot of suspense and moments of I-should-close-my-eyes-now. The ending sets it up perfectly for a sequel. I think if you haven’t already, you should watch it. If you have, watch it again; you might pick up on something you missed the first time.
