The best midnight madness movie EVER!
9 September 2013 | by (Toronto) – See all my reviews

As good as the Shining was something I said to all around me as soon as the picture ended.

Brilliantly conceived and executed. Fast paced action + beautifully shot + not too gory + a cast of characters you really cared about all combined to make this the best experience of jumping and screaming and laughing I've seen from a bunch of experienced horror show aficionados I have ever seen.

Good performances from all including the kids. Very unpredictable and wholly inventive storyline. Even the cleverest plots and safeguards will not defeat the pure evil of the Oculus.

Very good effort from some brilliant and talented people.
