Oculus is some scary shit

5 second plot: Tim has just been released from a mental institution for killing his father when he was a kid. His sister convinces him to set the record straight and go after the real killer of their parents: an evil presence that uses an old mirror to get close to its victims. The sister tracked the mirror down and is ready to rumble.

5 second plot: This is a pretty fresh take on the haunted mirror story. They know (well, the sister anyway) upfront what they are up against and install cameras and kill switches to outsmart the mirror. It's a great scary movie and it gets really gross from time to time. The story picks up speed exponentially as it runs along. Towards the end, your mind has to go in overdrive just to keep up.
