20th Century Fox Home Entertainment releases Oculus (2013) on Blu-ray and DVD this August 5, 2014. This movie about the Lasser Glass and the ancient evil held within was a good 2014 horror movie directed by Mike Flanagan. Still no word yet on the special features but that news should come soon. I like that they decided to add the evil spirit in the mirror looking back at it’s latest victim. Oculus stars Karen Gillan, Brenton Thwaites and Katee Sackhoff.
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…
