'I Know What You Did Last Summer' was one of the beloved horror franchises of the '90s and helped define the slasher genre for the decade, so we should have seen this one coming: Sony Pictures will introduce this classic to newer generations with an 'I Know What You Did Last Summer' reboot. What? 'Scream' is still kinda going on, so...

This weekend saw a neck-and-neck race for the first spot at the box office, with the animated 'Rio 2' offering strong competition for last week's champion, 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier.' When the dust, debris and feathers settled, the one starring the superhero took the first slot, but there is no shame in a second place that strong.

'Oculus' Review

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.

Oculus’ – one of the scariest movies you’ll see this year – opens in theaters this Friday and to help get you excited, we have Part 2 of our interview with star Karen Gillan. We met with Gillan shortly after the film’s premiere at SXSW to talk a little bit more about the movie. Here, Gillan starts off explaining what she saw in ‘Oculus’ – a horror movie that actually feels new and exciting.

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.

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!
