The horror flick Oculus tells the story of a beautiful antique mirror whose most recent owners, siblings Kaylie (Karen Gillan) and Tim (Brenton Thwaites), are struggling to rebuild their relationship after the gruesome demise of their parents, 10 years earlier. While the two attempt to uncover the truth, they also begin to turn on each other, as the malevolent supernatural force of the mirror infects their minds and reflects their own insecurities.
At the film’s press day, Collider spoke to actress Katee Sackhoff (who plays the mother of the siblings in flashbacks) for this exclusive interview about what attracted her to Oculus, being a fan of director Mike Flanagan’s work, how she approached this character, her concerns about having to be intensely physical with the younger actors, and the technical challenges of the show. She also talked about how Season 3 of her A&E drama series Longmire is going, and how fun it would be to get to further explore her Riddick character, if they make another movie.
