NEW RELEASE UPDATE: OCULUS - Blu-ray releasing this August


The first twenty minutes of Oculus were truly frightening, alluring and created a Gothic ghost tale that seemed like it would enchant and basically freak me out. From the twenty minutes mark on the whole thing seemed to ignore that classic ghostie feel and became a lesson in strange time lines as well as fake-reality dancing. Some of it worked. Some of it annoyed me and mostly I just got confused (as most of you know this doesn't take much). I am eager to enjoy it again at home, with a fresh mindset and perhaps understanding it just a bit more after a lengthy conversation with the Dead Air crew. 


The full release has been announced on Blu-ray. Most people seem to enjoy it at least in part, and I'll have my full second look at this feature up closer to August. Until then mark your calenders.  

And yeah... the apple scene. That is all.

Full release notes below:
From the Producers of Paranormal Activity and Insidious,
The Terror Arrives on Digital HD™ July 29
and on Blu-ray™ and DVD August 5


Synopsis
Seeing is deceiving in this disturbingly original horror flick that reflects heart-stopping terror as you’ve never imagined! It’s been ten years since the lives of siblings Tim (Brenton Thwaites; Maleficent) and Kaylie Russell (Karen Gillan; “Doctor Who”) were shattered and Tim was convicted of murdering their parents. Now released from a mental institution, Tim wants to move on, but his sister has other plans. Kaylie blames their childhood nightmare on the Lasser Glass—an antique mirror with a grisly history—which she intends to destroy by any means possible, even as the mysterious entity continues to cast sinister spells on anyone who gazes into it.
