Release: 2013

Directed by Mike Flanagan

Written by Mike Flanagan and Jeff Howard

"Haunted by the violent demise of their parents 10 years earlier, adult siblings Kaylie (Karen Gillan) and Tim (Brenton Thwaites) are now struggling to rebuild their relationship. Kaylie suspects that their antique mirror, known as the Lasser Glass, is behind the tragedy. The seemingly harmless reflections contain a malevolent, supernatural force that infects the mind of anyone who gazes into it. As Kaylie gets closer to the truth, the siblings become caught in the mirror’s evil spell."

Oculus is another smart ghost movie  to be well received by critics. It was such an interestin g film that it even spawned a Bollywood remake just a few years later, with Mike Flanagan serving as a producer. Horror fans refer to this movie a lot when talking about supernatural horror flicks of recent years, and if that appeals to you, then Oculus may be right up your alley.
