Karen Gillan and Katee Sackhoff Made a Horror Movie Together Called 'Oculus.' This Is the Trailer for That Movie

I was going to go with a more provocative headline, maybe include some combination of nerd and/or geek and gasm, maybe throw in a “sexy” or a ‘wowee’ or a sweet sassy molassy (™ Daniel Carlson), or maybe mention the fact that Karen Gillan EATS LIGHTBULBS.

But I figure, Horror Movie + Karen Gillan + Katee Sackhoff = Click.

As for the trailer itself? It’s OK! A lot of ominous voice over narration, a lot of blood, a brief glimpse of Katee Sackhoff in horror villain mode, and another one of those creepy contorting horror movie characters. It looks kind of generic, and the plot description doesn’t really help matters: “A woman tries to exonerate her brother, who was convicted of murder, by proving that the crime was committed by a supernatural phenomenon.”

But hey! Karen Gillan and Katee Sackhoff, right?

    I saw it in TIFF last year. It's actually good. The concept of how they choose to tell a story is very refreshing. Since two story lines (past and present) are simultaneously happening in same exact location. It's pretty cool.

    This was originally a short film by the same name released in 2006. I can't say the feature-length teaser was the most gripping I've ever seen, but based on the strength of the short version, I can't wait for this to be released. The short is really a fantastically creepy slow burn that shows what can be done with a minimal budget. You can watch it online here if you haven't seen it.

    I need to see this because Karen Gillan and Katee Sackhoff.

    I feel that the world needs more Bitch Pudding.

  • Haystacks

    This looks terrible. I will go see it.

  • Tinkerville

    I'm an avid consumer of indie horror movies, but man could I do without the shitty "obviously meant to be creepy but actually terribly written" poem narration.

  • grr arrgh

    Meh, it could've been the eerie song sung by children trope. I can't think of any examples off the top of my head, but that one seems to be a big trailer trope too.

    i'm actually pretty psyched for this movie. The director's previous flick, Absentia was about a woman having to deal with declaring her husband dead in absentia (missing for 7 years), while her sister suspects his disappearance is connected to others from the area centered around a nearby tunnel. There's a bit of a bait and switch as it goes along, and it ended up being a pretty effective, low-budget flick (usually marketed with a terrible poster depicting a scene that never happens in the movie and makes it look less thoughtful than it is).

    Oculus played some festivals last year, and all the reviews i saw raved about it, saying it turned a lot of horror tropes on their heads as well as being terrifying.

    i want.

    Absentia was awesome. Really, really glad when I stumbled on it.

  • Boo_Radley

    Agreed, the ending of Absentia was uber-creepy. A good reference for this film.

  • PDamian

    Awesome. Absentia was a terrific little film. I'm in.

  • RilesSD

    I didn't see Taran Killam in there anywhere.

  • Afferbeck

    I wonder if she'll use her natural Scottish accent or an American one.

  • Guest

    Me too... I worry about that.

  • Guest

    Wait a minute. You make a movie with Amy Pond and Starbuck but you don't put their names anywhere on the poster?

    Who exactly is the audience you're going for?
