Ten years ago, the lives of siblings Tim and Kaylie Russell were forever changed. After their parents acquired the Lasser Glass, an antique mirror, they experienced hallucinations and became psychotic. Although the siblings tried to seek help, their attempts were futile and it all ended in a bloodbath with their parents dead. Their lives were shattered and Tim was arrested and convicted of murdering their parents.

Now released from a mental institution, Tim wants to move on, but Kaylie has other plans. She blames their childhood nightmare on the Lasser Glass and has spent the years researching its grisly history. After acquiring the Lasser Glass, she tries to document its powers with surveillance cameras, but Tim objects and believes she is rationalizing their parents’ death, unable to accept the truth. When the two witness the mirror’s diabolical powers and the mysterious entity that continues to cast sinister spells on anyone who gazes into it, Tim tries to escape the house with Kaylie while she vows to destroy it by any means possible.

DVD and Blu-ray special features include a making-of featurette and theatrical trailer. Exclusive to Blu-ray are deleted scenes with optional commentary, audio commentary with Mike Flanagan and Trevor Macy and the original “Oculus” 33-minute short film with optional commentary.
