Sony Plans To Reboot I Know What You Did Last Summer With the help of Oculus' Mike FlanaganOf all the titles being fed into the maw of the Reboot Machine, we really didn’t think anyone would add 1997 horror I Know What You Did Last Summer to the conveyor belt. Still, Sony has gone ahead and done just that, hiring Oculus co-writer/director Mike Flanagan to go back to the source novel – yes, the film had one – for a new stab.Flanagan is working once again with co-producer Jeff Howard, who contributed to the script that turned Oculus from a short into a successful horror film.

‘Gerald’s Game’ Opens Pandora’s Box for Stephen King Adaptations Hachette Few films can boast that they came from WWE Studios, and also boast that they’re not roundly terrible in every way imaginable (although I remain cautiously optimistic about Untitled Flintstones WWE Movie and Jingle All the Way 2). Oculus is one of those films.

To contrast last week’s single release, this weekend brings a sizeable batch of new releases, with a fairly large variety of genre, plot, and quality. That being said, this weekend’s fare is still a great deal better (or at least better-rated) than the vast majority of the last several weeks’ worth of mediocre films.

Karen Gillan wears a negligee and looks in a mirror in this clip from Oculus

joblo.com – The new horror flick OCULUS stars Karen Gillan as a woman trying to exonerate her brother who was convicted of murder by way of proving it was actually committed by a supernatural force; an antique mirror. Mirrors always seem to get a bad rap in horror films as they are never seen without something horrible happening inside or behind them and this new clip from the film is another nail in that coffin. 8 years 38 weeks ago via jetli
