[BD Review] 'Oculus' Is A Fresh, Unrelentingly Terrifying Supernatural Horror Film!

Every story has pretty much been told. When it comes to supernatural horror, every concept and image has been exhausted. What sets the effective entries apart from the lot comes down to the filmmaker’s personal sensibility he injects into the material. James Wan’s The Conjuring doesn’t break any new ground yet I found myself invested in the family and fearing for their lives. That personal immersion made Wan’s first-rate theatrics all the scarier.

TIFF 2013 Review: OCULUS Isn't Just A Great Midnight Film, It's A Great Film, Period

The Midnight Madness slate usually has a few rules - keep things snappy, keep them gory, and you'll do well to keep the denizens of the dark with you for a running time that stretches well into the very early morning. Splatters of blood and blaring horns are often key, and often mood is sacrificed for needing to keep the audience jolted awake.
