Miscalibrated Internet Receptor Stalks

I finally got around to seeing Oculus today. Even though it's been a couple of years since the Angels took Manhattan and she's not speaking like a Scottish lass it's hard to watch the movie and not see a lot of Amy Pond in Karen Gillan's character

Like Charlie Jane pointed out in her review the movie has a lot of elements of recent Doctor Who stories. And as the image above shows, Karen Gillan does a lot of Amy Pond face during the movie.


Oculus is a decent horror movie that's more about a sense of foreboding than gore with a good set of actors (including a pair of believable children and Katee Sackhoff playing someone besides a sassy smart mouth). But it does start to fall apart as it goes on and you will probably see the ending coming.
