A horror movie has one job really: be scary. Beyond that, most flaws can be overlooked (at least temporarily). 'Oculus,' a horror movie ostensibly about a haunted mirror, has many flaws (not the least of which is that it's a horror movie about a haunted mirror; a tired premise if there ever was one), but it does one thing very, very well: be scary.

The idea of a movie about an evil mirror tormenting and killing people over the years may seem a little silly, but 'Oculus' makes it work. Set in two time frames, it tells the story of how the "Lasser Glass" destroyed one family and how the survivors reunite years later to exact their revenge. We have an exclusive look at the history of this (thankfully fictional) object, narrated by star Karen Gillan who rips off a monologue on all the mirror's devilish deeds.

It is a weird distinction that the impossibly perky and polite Karen Gillan is the star of the scariest movie of the year, 'Oculus'. In the film, she plays a young woman determined to crack - both literally and figuratively - the mystery behind an evil mirror that has haunted her family. Her red hair pulled back in a ponytail (which bounces hypnotically to and fro as if it were itself possessed) that's as tight as her personality.

We have a good feeling about 'Oculus.' As the latest release from Blumhouse Productions (the folks behind 'Paranormal Activity' and 'Sinister'), the horror film follows a young woman who attempts to clear her brother's name after he is accused of a crime that was actually committed by a creepy supernatural entity living in a mirror. The full 'Oculus' trailer has arrived, and it looks like it'll have its fair share of chills and scares.

It's a tale as old as time; fall in love with a bright light from overseas, and we'll give them a ridiculous stateside sitcom. Like Rebel Wilson before her, 'Doctor Who' and 'Guardians of the Galaxy' favorite Karen Gillan will soon come to ABC in an American accent for forthcoming pilot 'Selfie,' courtesy of 'Suburgatory' creator Emily Kapnek.

The first 'Guardians of the Galaxy' trailer debuts tonight during 'Jimmy Kimmel Live,' but Marvel already teased us with three hi-res images from the film, and now they released 15 seconds from the trailer itself -- because Marvel can't help but torture us with anticipation.

The 'Oculus' trailer isn't shy about who's behind the film's production. Producer Jason Blum and his Blumhouse Pictures have had tremendous success with the horror genre, crafting films like 'Paranormal Activity,' 'Insidious,' 'Sinister' and 'The Purge.' The company's latest film is 'Oculus,' which bears many of the same traits as other Blumhouse films. Domestic setting invaded by supernatural horror? Check. A decent cast of actors lending credibility to what should be genre absurdity? Check. A trailer that relies on surreal imagery and the innocent-yet-creepy voice of a child to sell the chills? Check!

Has Karen Gillan's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Role Been Revealed?

Last month came word that 'Doctor Who' star Karen Gillan had signed on to star in Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' as one of the film's villains. We've heard that Lee Pace will play The Controller and Benicio Del Toro will play Thanos, so what villain could Gillan be playing? Perhaps one of the reasons why figuring out Gillan's character has been so difficult is because her character may not even have originated in the Marvel universe...
