oculussm “Doctor Who” fans, take note, this may be your last chance to see Karen Gillan with her signature red locks for a while. Horror flick “Oculus” is headed for the Toronto International Film Festival Midnight Madness sidebar, and today we have the first images of Gillan and co-star Brenton Thwaites.

Gillan and Thwaites play a pair of siblings who witnessed the horrific death of their parents when they were children (with Annalise Basso and Garrett Ryan, also featured in the first stills, playing the pair in flashback scenes). The brother was convicted of the crime, while the sister believes an antique mirror was responsible. Ten years later, they are torn between trying to move on or returning to the scene of the crime to solve the mystery. Mike Flanagan directed the film in Mobile, Alabama, from a script he co-wrote with Jeff Howard.

“Oculus” has no release date yet, but for now you can see the first photos below.
