One of SXSW's small but pleasant surprises was haunted house horror “Oculus” (our review), which arrives on screens this spring. As we note in our review, haunted houses are having a bit of a moment thanks to “The Conjuring” and arguably “The Purge,” which isn't strictly about a haunted house but has some of the structural elements of those films.

One of SXSW's small but pleasant surprises was haunted house horror “Oculus” (our review), which arrives on screens this spring. As we note in our review, haunted houses are having a bit of a moment thanks to “The Conjuring” and arguably “The Purge,” which isn't strictly about a haunted house but has some of the structural elements of those films.

Here therefore are a couple of promo pieces designed to whip you into a frenzy of fear over the film, which deals with a family's toxic relationship with a haunted mirror that has imperilled two generations, each of which (coincidentally? We think not) includes an actress from a beloved sci-fi TV franchise (“Battlestar Galactica” star Katee Sackhoff and “Doctor Who” thesp Karen Gillan). Ok, it might be a coincidence.

Anyway, check out the clips below – including a particularly nasty moment with a lightbulb – and see what you think. “Oculus” hits on April 11th.
