Relativity has released the first trailer for the horror film, Oculus. The film premiered as part of the Midnight Madness lineup at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival, and per the festival’s synopsis, the story is about “two damaged siblings (Karen Gillan and Brenton Thwaites) who, as children, witnessed their parents’ harrowing descent into madness and murder. At long last, brother and sister reunite as adults to expose and destroy the paranormal entity they believe is responsible: the Lasser Glass — a legendary mirror their family once owned.” This trailer doesn’t touch the plot at all, and instead opts to showcase the spooky tone and imagery.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer and creepy poster. The film also stars Rory Cochrane and Katee Sackhoff. Oculus opens April 11th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Oculus:
Ten years ago, tragedy struck the Russell family, leaving the lives of teenage siblings Tim and Kaylie forever changed when Tim was convicted of the brutal murder of their parents. Now in his 20s, Tim is newly released from protective custody and only wants to move on with his life; but Kaylie, still haunted by that fateful night, is convinced her parents’ deaths were caused by something else altogether: a malevolent supernatural force unleashed through the Lasser Glass, an antique mirror in their childhood home. Determined to prove Tim’s innocence, Kaylie tracks down the mirror, only to learn similar deaths have befallen previous owners over the past century. With the mysterious entity now back in their hands, Tim and Kaylie soon find their hold on reality shattered by terrifying hallucinations, and realize, too late, that their childhood nightmare is beginning again…
