Mike Flanagan‘s Oculus (2013) has a movie theaters release date for April 11, 2014 and is looking great. I am really liking the promo material being released so far. The first poster had a creepy hands over the face image but this new movie poster features a girl jumping out of the mirror with the tagline, “You see what it wants you to see”. Creepy factor looks great and I am sold, I have to see Oculus. Karen Gillan, Katee Sackhoff, Brenton Thwaites and Rory Cochrane star in the scary mirror horror movie Oculus.

Determined to prove Tim’s innocence, Kaylie tracks down the mirror, only to learn similar deaths have befallen previous owners over the past century.
