Rating: Pretty Damn Good
This movie has a bit of controversy when it comes to reviews. Abstract movies have a tendency to elude the majority of audiences, so it says a lot for this film that it turned a huge profit at the box office. While many people who viewed it were left saying “I didn’t get it” and “that was stupid” there were a select bunch of viewers who couldn’t help but applaud the movie as it came to a close, myself included.
-For some, the story telling style is confusing
-For some, it wasn’t gory enough
-For some, it moved too slowly
What you’ll love:
-Classic horror done right, it’s amazing how typical this movie is when you look at its basic components, and yet it’s one of the most original films I’ve seen in a while. It succeeds where many horror films fail.
-Mind fff… er… mind blowing plot twists and turns
-A creative villain
-An ending that leaves you thinking about the movie long after its over
-Great acting by all
-It makes you want a sequel
If you liked “The Fountain” and “Memento” and really wished people in those movies were spine-tinglingly murdered by a supernatural force, you’re going to love Oculus.
It’s becoming more rare that I feel a movie is so good I want to own it, but this one is definitely on my list. Check it out and let me know what you think.
