#31DH: October 23, 2015 – Oculus


Synopsis:  A woman tries to exonerate her brother, who was convicted of murder, by proving that the crime was committed by a supernatural phenomenon.

Impressions:  This was recommended by a friend.  It was an interesting concept and would keep be guessing on what i was watching was the real situation, or a faux.  I loved the concept, and the story but there were spots in between that did not keep my interest.

Social Message:  It’s very interesting to look at this film through the eyes of the children from their perspectives as children and adults when looking at their parent’s marriage.  When you strip away the horror elements, you see the crumblings of a marriage from it’s flirtatious, loving beginning to it’s deadly conclusion.  When you look at failed marriages, it takes it toil on the kids.  Even when they grow-up to be adults, they tend to have a negative view of themselves, love, and marriage.
