Mike Flanagan’s chiller Oculus hit us with a pretty fantastic teaser trailer back in January that had a very hypnotic, almost fairytale-like vibe to it. I really enjoyed it, but the one thing it was missing was any real scares or sense of its story. That has all changed now that an official trailer has been released, offering a great look at one of the most anticipated horror films of the year.
We horror fans have been pretty spoiled with some great trailers lately, haven’t we?
Oculus is a spine-chilling supernatural tale of two damaged siblings (Gillan and Thwaites) who, as children, witnessed their parents’ harrowing descent into madness and murder. At long last, brother and sister reunite as adults to expose and destroy the paranormal entity they believe is responsible: the Lasser Glass — a legendary mirror their family once owned.
Oculus stars Karen Gillan and Brenton Thwaites with Rory Cochrane, Katee Sackhoff, Annalise Basso, Garrett Ryan, James Lafferty and Miguel Sandoval. It will open in theaters on April 11th. Check out the new trailer below!
