Oculus ★★★½

This film really REFLECTS whats wrong with society today, heyo!

No, but the craft on display here is impressive. Excellent editing and acting in particular; the cinematography and dialogue are more blah. By-the-numbers premise but with an interesting dual-narrative approach that works extremely well once the subjective nature of reality rears its ugly head and shit gets crazy. Definitely more SINISTER than EXORCIST, in that the film is not interested in offering you hope or warmth; the film's thesis is that evil pervades, and that it will always prevail. Grim fare that's hard to shake off.
