Where do I begin...
First, this is a MUST-SEE, 2 thumbs up film about facing your demons, both figuratively and literally. It's also a movie that truly demonstrates the truth in the saying "Perception is Reality".
I really won't even say much more on the film directly, as I DETEST telling the movie or having it told to people who have yet to see it.
However, the movie has MANY underlying themes, a few being psycho- emotional ones: facing childhood trauma, facing your "inner demons", longing for affection from an absent parent. Then it has its paranormal- physics type themes. Where most horror movies rely on blood,beasts, and gore, Oculus relies on your perception of reality.
Think about this for example: Have you ever stared into a mirror at yourself, only to wonder if it was YOU that you were looking at or a different version of you (maybe a YOU from an alternate reality)? What I'm saying is, lets say that you were staring, being extremely still, and all of a sudden, the mirror-You moves on his or her own??
Well, anyway, this movie begs for group discussion.
