Here it is – the first official image from Mike Flanagan‘s horror-movie Oculus, which is currently in post-production. It’s a pretty good look at the leading lady Karen Gillan aka Kaylie Russell, who will have to prove that a terrible crime was committed by a supernatural phenomenon and not by her brother Tim, played by Brenton Thwaites. Check out the rest of this report to find more details about the whole thing, and to take a better look at this image!
Writer and director of micro-budget horror pic Absentia, Mike Flanagan, directs Oculus from a script he co-wrote with Jeff Howard which centers on:
…a murder that left two children orphans with authorities charging the brother while his sister believed that the true culprit was a haunted antique mirror. Now completely rehabilitated and in his 20s, the brother is ready to move on but his sister is determined to prove that the haunted mirror was responsible for destroying their family.
Beside Karen Gillan and Brenton Thwaites, the movie also stars Katee Sackhoff, Rory Cochrane, Annalise Basso and Garrett Ryan.
FilmDistrict is handling U.S. distribution but at this moment there’s still nothing about an official release date. As usual, we’ll keep an eye on Oculus, so make sure you stay tuned!
