The final product is a beautifully shot and wonderful acted entry in the never-ending pool of niche horror movies looking to shock, scare, and unnerve.

Horror fans shouldn't miss Oculus; films as creepy as this one don't come along too often.

Mike Flanagan's Oculus does more to a familiar premise than most standard-issue scary movies out there.

Ultimately, though, it is the characters that count, and Flanagan gives emotional resonance to the story of charming family undone by unexplained forces; and his actors go a long way in portraying this with honesty.

A clever storyline keeps the pace, although it could be argued the film had too many storylines going for its running time.

Oculus was actually awesome, even though I didn't have any expectations for it at all...happy to tell you that this one was well thought-out with some great performances.

In some off-the-wall realm, Oculus works its seedy magic because the concept of frightening furniture and childhood disillusionment is not exactly what one would expect as a passable taunting tie-in of sorts.
November 1, 2018
The acting and characters are solid enough, the general idea of the story is captivating and the atmosphere of the piece is genuinely disconcerting.
October 26, 2018
The acting is solid, the camera work is noteworthy, and the story is well written.

Whilst being far from perfect, Oculus is often quite effective in its approach
October 15, 2018
I thought that the storyline was original, awesome and definitely refreshing.
August 22, 2018
Flanagan's best move is to play with our expectations, where we are never quite sure what is actually is real and what is supernatural.

The story will stay with the audience long after the screening.

If you find mirrors spooky, stay away. And if you love to check yourself out in the mirror, this low-budget thriller will compel you to think otherwise.

A lot of time and effort in this film is spent on eating, or waiting to eat, or wanting to eat. It's too bad that all the buffet served was varying levels of confusion and impatience.

Without spoiling anything, the last half hour of OCULUS is one of the most stressful, disorienting and hypnotizing divebombs into child's-eye horror I've ever sat through.
June 21, 2016
The tension just keeps building as layers of new knowledge, for both the characters and the audience, are acquired.
April 15, 2016
"Oculus" plays like it went straight to DVD in 2005, its over-reliance on technology as a plot device and distractingly bad hair making it feel instantly dated.
January 8, 2016
Flanagan effectively turns his inanimate killer very much into an entity that's just as deadly as anything with a pulse- a remarkable feat- all while cleverly concocting an intriguing and complicated tale that isn't afraid to get a little nasty.
August 23, 2015
Good script, strong cast, several quality scares... yeah, it's actually a decent haunted mirror movie!
