Inspired by terrifying real experiments. When a crazed university professor (Jared Harris) and his team of students set out to cure a disturbed patient, the unthinkable happens. Trusting in their leader and his motives, Brian (Sam Claflin) and his fellow students find themselves far from help...and all too close to a sinister force they never suspected.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Many of the movie's more nominally horrific elements are too familiar ...
Fresh: A retro possession story that will wind up being best remembered for its groovy '70s setting (lots of mutton-chop sideburns and T. Rex and Slade songs on the soundtrack) and a deliciously sinister performance from Jared Harris.
Rotten: Pogue jacks up the decibels so often to manufacture frights that you fear a punctured eardrum more than anything else.
Rotten: As an exercise in retro pastiche, it impresses. But as a postmodern genre reinvention, it fails to deliver.
The whole critical world has gone mad. Oculus is a 76% fresh rating and this is 36%. Oculus was such incomprehensible garbage, we had to turn it off in the first 25 minutes, whereas this was a well told, classic ghost story littered with great performances. Please Apple, ditch the tomato meter and depend on your audience to set the ratings. I avoided this film in favor of Oculus upon seeing that stupid, green splattered tomato.
Could have been good.
Sometimes when I see these kind of movies I think about what if I would have wrote this, I could've have made this a descent horror thriller and I wonder why the crew that made it didn't do things differently but it is what it is, and this horror film is one you'll want to skip, not entertaining and way predictable.
After having to watch the movie twice because of loosing interest mid way. I would have to say this movie was very repetitive and wasn't very scary at all. Just like the movie "momma" it was more sad and slightly heart felt. If you're looking for something to scare you right off the bat, this movie is probably not for you
