First look at Karen Gillan in "Oculus"

Following her adventures in Utah, as well as taking Manhattan twice (once with some Angels and once as Jean Shrimpton), Karen Gillan seems to have gone for the US in a big way as she eyes her future career prospects. Instead of heading straight to Hollywood, though, she has been filming Oculus in Alabama with fellow sci-fi powerhouse Katee Sackhoff (most famous as Starbuck in the reimagined Battlestar Galactica but surely just as famous as One Of Many People in Halloween: Resurrection and for appearing alongside Michelle Ryan as they both fought for the title of The Bionic Woman).

Oculus is a forthcoming horror film from Mike Flanagan, the director of the very highly regarded chiller Absentia, who posted the very first publicity shot from the film on his Twitter page this evening. The promotional still features Karen, her co-star Brenton Thwaites and a sinister mirror that may, or may not, be responsible for the deaths of their parents. Definitely one to keep an eye on.
