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 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.
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.
