Film Review: Oculus

By Becky Todd

As seen in Pegasus Pages (Summer 2014)

Film: Oculus (2013); Directed by: Mike Flanagan; Genre: Horror; Cert: 15+

Rating: 4/5       

Mirrors. An easy way to make an audience jump out of their skins as something supernatural appears unexpectedly in a mirror. It’s boring and predictable, yet somehow still manages to prevent us looking into a mirror for the next few days. However, despite the main supernatural plot feature being an evil mirror, Oculus manages not to overuse this trope.

As seen in Pegasus Pages, March 2013.

Late March to early April is normally that time of the year when New Year fever has worn off,  yet it isn’t quite summer and dreaded exams are fast approaching. Have no fear, film is here… *Ehem*… Or something to that effect. Two favourite genres of mine are Science Fiction and Fantasy and let me give you three good reasons why all is not lost; the Brits are storming America.

‘Gone with the Wind’ – The Film Disappointed

gone with the wind

By Isabella Crane

As seen in Pegasus Pages (December 2012).

When I first picked up Gone With The Wind, I’m not exactly sure what I was expecting. But whatever it was, it definitely wasn’t that it would be a book that would make me sit up, locked in my room, until four o’clock in the morning because I physically couldn’t put it down. The belles, balls, and beauty of the South had me completely hooked, and when I finally finished the last page, several sleepless nights later, the book had affected me so profoundly that I was honestly surprised that the Earth was still revolving.

You can imagine my reaction, then, when I heard of the movie, filmed in 1939. Ten Academy Awards, earned more than any other film previously in history, Vivien Leigh, Clark Gable, the classic film of the 1930s, blah, blah, blah. It’s bound to be good, right?

Wrong.

Film Review: ‘Intouchables’

By Ellie Clarke

Having been awarded Best Actor awards from both César and the Tokyo International Film Festival, and having received a nomination for the Best Foreign Language Oscar, it seems as though the unexpected box office hit Intouchables really is untouchable.
