If Mike Flanagan's goal was to scare the bejeesus out of the entire Midnight Madness audience (and I'm pretty sure it was), then he certainly accomplished that with the absolutely spine-tingling OCULUS. With actors Katee Sackhoff, Rory Cochrane (in his third Midnight Madness appearance!), James Lafferty, and Brendon Thwaites in tow, Flanagan surprised and shocked the Ryerson with his tale of a haunted mirror, and photographer Ian Goring was there to capture all the creepiness!

Carol here: Usually, Sachin uploads the photos himself, but I received a mysterious email providing me with the photos and the his text and asking me to post this for him while he dealt with "that cursed mirror!" I can only honor what I hope is not his last request and hope for that he has not entered some terrible Phantom Zone...
Anyway, thanks to everyone who came out. If you missed the premiere, there are still two more screenings of Oculus!
