Recently watched OCULUS and loved it. The synopsis:
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…
This is a really solid horror movie with a simple premise: a mirror haunted with the souls of its victims that can produce hallucinations and otherwise derange its victims. I loved the setup, how these kids who went through unspeakable tragedy are now young adults, and come together to keep a promise to destroy the thing that killed their parents.
The sister is obsessed with the mirror and wants revenge. The brother went through a lifetime of psychotherapy and now doubts that what they saw was actually real.
Their night with the mirror will put all doubts to rest.
As hallucination forces the siblings to confront their past, we see a cat and mouse game in which the mirror, not them, is the cat, and go back to that horrific night when their parents went insane and tried to kill them.
Recommended for horror fans.
