    4 out of 5. This was a refreshing take on the "cursed object" film. Depending on your opinion of the Paranormal Activity and Insidious films (personally, I'm a fan of the latter but not the former), you may be disuaded from seeing this (as it's being marketed as being from the producer of those films), but Oculus is nothing like them. It's genuinely creepy and completely immerses the viewer in its reality-bending storyline, with an ending that hits you like a punch to the gut.

    My full review of the film can be found here.

    My wife and I saw this this afternoon. Very effective film. We thoroughly enjoyed the film. I found the two young children to be very natural and "real" in the flashbacks. All in all, a nice time being creeped out by this film.

    Agree with Doug and Yavin. Film sets up its rules and lives - or in this case, dies - by them.

    Loved the intercutting between various time periods.
