25. Oculus

Release Year: 2013

Director: Mike Flanagan

Mirrors can make for some of the best props in scary movies. Oculus beautifully demonstrates how much terror can reign down from a simple reflection. An antique mirror tears apart a marriage, and soon after a family.

Using flashbacks and two different time periods, Oculus breaks into two separate stories that weave into one horrifying tale. Cool special effects with visions coming out of the mirror; leave some not so fun images in your head.

The ending of Oculus really leaves an opportunity for at least a sequel, if not a full-blown franchise. After receiving good reviews overall, hopefully, there’s a good chance we get to see the rest of the story.
