While filmmaker Mike Flanagan continued to find success with Netflix shows like “The Haunting of Hill House” and “Midnight Mass” and movies like “Doctor Sleep,” one of his early “Oculus” films still stands. one of his best (and scariest) efforts. The 2013 film is set in two timelines, with Karen Gillan playing a young woman who believes a mirror is responsible for the tragedy that befell her family as a child. She reunites with her brother (played by Brenton Thwaites) and rediscovers the mirror, hoping to unlock its secrets before it’s too late.
