‘OCULUS’ Movie Review with Exclusive Interview

ocu

Cast: Karen Gillan, Brenton Thwaites, Katee Sackhoff, Rory Cochrane, Annalise Basso, Garret Ryan

Director: Mike Flanagan

Official Film Synopsis: “Ten years ago Tim Russell (Brenton Thwaites) shot his father (Rory Cochrane) after he witnessed him killing his mother (Katee Sackhoff). He’s sent to a mental hospital because of the shooting but also because he believed that his parents’ deaths were due to an evil supernatural entity that possessed an antique mirror in their home. This leaves his sister Kaylie (Karen Gillan) to face life alone until, years later, Tim is finally released. All he wants to do is move on from that fateful night, but in his absence Kaylie has become convinced that the mirror is indeed possessed, as she has discovered that the mirror’s previous owners throughout the centuries have had similarly bloody pasts. Kaylie is determined to prove that the mirror is responsible for the murders as opposed to Tim or her father.”

Below is Coming to Steam!

below1

Capybara Games has stated that they’re releasing Below on Steam as well as Xbox One.

The indie developer, which is additionally creating the upcoming Super TIME Force, showed the PC version in a new trailer for Below, that has the Steam logo. The action game was announced at E3 2013 as an apparent Xbox One exclusive, since it’s published by Microsoft. But last summer, Capy clarified that Below would see release on other platforms after an exclusive time period on Microsoft’s home console.
