Oculus Movie Review

Oculus

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.

 

oculusconfusedWhat you’ll hate:

-For some, the story telling style is confusing

-For some, it wasn’t gory enough

-For some, it moved too slowly

Plenty of cringe moments in Oculus


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.

Doubting reality is a regular theme

 

-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

The children acted well enough to kind of steal the show

-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.

Thanks for reading,

    Good review Kephra. It’s less scary and more fun than anything. Also pretty interesting as well.

      Thanks man. Yeah it’s interesting how psychology plays a role in everything, the lightbulb scene FREAKED me out, but what scares one person might make another laugh.
