Christopher Webster [Celluloid 02.23.15] Russia horror



I finally caught up with last year's Oculus and found it to be an extremely effective and atmospheric haunted object film (read: terrifying). Speculum, a new horror film from Russia, looks to have the same focus on tension that that film had and I'm curious to see how the formula might translate in another culture.

Speculum sees a ritual awakening the Queen of Spades.

Synopsis:
Speculum revolves around a group of young friends diving into a local urban legend and summoning the Queen Of Spades through an arcane ritual. And what seems a bit of fun proves entirely more sinister when the ritual actually works and the bodies start piling up.


The film is directed by Svyatoslav Podgaevskaya.

I was amazed how much I liked Oculus! Had zero interest but when I finally caught it on cable, it was awesome! Refreshing.

Agreed. And very intense and violent considering it had two child leads for most of it.
