Storyline

Years ago, Tim Russel's father committed a horrible atrocity; it was always Tim's contention that the large ornate mirror his father possessed was the cause of this terrible event. Now after years of research, Tim has traced the bloody trail of destruction that treads in the wake of this dark and forbidding mirror. With a history of over 300 years of mysterious circumstance, Tim intends to capture these horrors on tape and reveal the true nature of evil that lies within. Written by anonymous

Trivia

The third chapter in a planned anthology about the sinister Lasser Glass, "The Man With the Plan" is actually the first installment to be filmed. Of the nine possible chapters to shoot, Flanagan and Seidman opted for this one purely because of budgetary constraints - the single character/single location nature of this chapter made it ideal. This chapter also gives the viewer a detailed history of the mirror itself, which the filmmakers wanted to include in their first film so that the other chapters would have the proper context.

Excellent short film
4 May 2006 | by (Narbonneau (79), France) – See all my reviews

Saw this at the Dead by Dawn film festival in Edinburgh and it was the best short film screened there this year in my opinion.

Essentially this is a one man show with Scott Graham alone with an evil mirror for much of the running time. While this doesn't sound particularly exciting, this growing feeling of paranoia and the increasing madness of the lone character propel the story.

Keep an eye on the video monitors that have been set up for the experiment, it's a small but very creepy touch.

Oculus is part 3 of a 9 part story. If Mike Flanagan can keep up this level of invention then I look forward to further entries.
