On a wide release level, there's Oculus, the film by Mike Flanagan starring Karen Gillan and Katee Sackhoff, and on a limited release level there's Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive, with Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, Anton Yelchin and John Hurt.

Both have received favorable reviews here at Shock. You can read my thoughts on Oculus right here. Ryan Larson weighed in on Only Lovers Left Alive here and I'm in total agreement with him. I love that movie.

    Will be checking out Oculus today. Saw most of “Only Lovers Left Alive” and was not one of the only viewers left awake.

      Damn Heathen, unfortunately i found ONLY LOVERS to be extremely boring too. LOL. i wanted to like the movie but it’s a snoozefest. i’m going to give the movie another viewing in hopes that maybe i’ll like it more on a 2nd viewing.

    I saw Oculus last night. I thought it was pretty creepy and well made. I loved not knowing what was real and what was not. I want to watch it again because I don’t know how I feel about the ending.
