Oculus (2014) 
While Doc and Dave agree that Mike Flanagan's chiller Oculus works as a great introductory horror film for non-horror fans, or a great "date movie," Santos and Thomas are not as supportive. The review heats up as the two sides discuss the film's successes and failures. An irritated Santos wants nothing to do with it; however, Dave shares he and his wife enjoyed the film greatly - his wife, who rarely likes horror films, wants to see it again. The film is creepy, full of atmosphere with terrific performances from its cast providing the film with a captivating set up but a divisive conclusion. The film is garnering strong reviews outside of HNR as it comes in at number 3 in the weekend box office, grossing $12 million in the U.S.

 

Top 5 Killer Inanimate Objects in Horror Films
Jumping off the haunted mirror in Oculus, Thomas leaps in to collect his top 5 killer inanimate objects in horror films:

 

  • House (1977) 
  • Rubber (2010) 
  • Christine (1983) 
  • Death Bed: The Bed That Eats People (1977) 
  • Maximum Overdrive (1986)
