Before Karen Gillan graces the big screen in “Guardians of the Galaxy,” the former “Doctor Who” companion has a horror movie to unleash on the world. In “Oculus,” Gillan’s character returns to her childhood home, along with her brother and a cursed mirror, with the goal of destroying the evil it holds.
Of course, as horror movies tend to go, it’s not exactly an easy task. The story jumps back in forth in time, flashing back to the siblings as children with their mother (“Battlestar Galactica’s” Katee Sackhoff). They are forced to battle whatever haunted force exists in the mirror and may not be strong enough to stop it.
You can see the first trailer from the movie above and the equally creepy poster below, care of Yahoo! Movies. “Oculus” is set for theaters on April 11.
