Creepy Trailers: “Oculus,” “Babadook”

Two upcoming horror films have scored fairly creepy first trailers this week.

First up, former “Doctor Who” companion Karen Gillan and “Battlestar Galactica” star Katee Sackhoff have teamed for Mike Flanagan’s “Oculus”. The story follows a brother and sister, now grown up, who believe their parents were killed by a malevolent supernatural force within an antique mirror.

The other is Jennifer Kent’s “The Babadook,” a Kickstarter-funded indie Australian horror tale about a single mother raising her son following her husband’s death. At the same time, a ghoul seems to be haunting their house.
