Like many horror trailers of there, the one for Oculus made me anticipate its release. Luckily, I got to watch Oculus this past weekend; which was a long enough wait.
I am going to try my hardest to not spoil Oculus what so ever because I really did enjoy it. It may not have been the scariest movie but being a psychological horror Oculus did freak me out; especially when I saw how the evil spirits psychologically affected the main characters (Kaylie Russell and Tim Russell) throughout this movie. It was truly fascinating to watch.
I have to warn you about Oculus though. Pay close attention to this movie, because of the sequences changing constantly from past to present it can get very confusing. Even missing a minute and you could miss out on a crucial part of the movie.
The majority of Oculus may have been good but there were some things that I did not like. Firstly, Oculus took a while before it got to the climax and everything before that, were either the main characters arguing or setting up their camera and timers. Secondly and lastly, I felt as though throughout this movie Kaylie Russell, the sister and one of the main characters seemed to be very bossy.
