‘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.”

A Fangirl Weekly Discussion: DLC Worth Buying!

will-work-for-dlc

There are a lot of arguments that happen between gamers in regards to downloadable content and video games. Some gamers believe that games are already too expensive and downloadable content should already be added to the game. Though I can see the argument in regards to this, I believe that downloadable content adds even more to a game after months of finishing it and allows modern games to have an even getter potential.  Though, most gamers do buy the DLC in regards to having those extra hours for some amazing fun, and great story content. Which DLC is the best and worth your money? This Fangirl has put together a list of DLC that is worth your time and hard earned dollars. However, it will not break the bank!  Whether you are for or against DLC these games will provide you with great story content, amazing action, and a few hours of fun!
