Gillan’s Oculus to premiere at Toronto Film Festival

Things are certainly taking off in a big way for Karen Gillan as her new movie Oculus is set to have its premiere next week at the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival.

Oculus 2

Oculus is a horror movie about a young woman (Gillan), who attempts to exonerate her brother after he was convicted of a murder that he did not commit. The woman sets out to prove that the murder was actually committed by a supernatural phenomenon.

Battlestar Galactica star Katee Sackoff is also in the movie, appearing as Karen’s mother and in an interview with Metro US commented on the role, and her feelings about the film in general:

It’s a very, very different take on a very simple horror movie. It’s fantastic. It’s one of the best pieces of work I’ve seen. I spend the majority of the movie — I don’t even know how to say this without giving too much away — I spend the majority of the movie not being the best mom.
With regard to what kind of horror experience we can expect from Oculus Katee added:
I mean, there’s a lot of blood. But there’s no swearing, there’s no sex, there’s no nudity. It’s just f—ing scary.
As well as starring Karen Gillan and Katee Sackhoff, Oculus also stars James Lafferty, Brenton Thwaites and Rory Cochrane and is directed by Mike Flanagan, based on the screenplay developed with Jeff Seidman and Jeff Howard. For more information and, if your lucky enough to be in Toronto this coming week, tickets head over to the Toronto International Film Festival website.
