Shailene Woodley conquered fear of heights for Divergent
Shailene Woodley's fear of heights fuelled her to be more daring.

Disney and other companies have not been afraid to put some very adult-like developments into their children's fi...

The moral of this film is don't buy a mirror that's more than a year old - or just make sure it's not from one that houses a malevolent spirit that will infect your mind, body and soul.

'Oculus,' directed by Mike Flanagan, is based on a short film of the same name, that he wrote and directed in 2005. The film was made for just under $1500 and shot in four days.

This 'Oculus' written by Flanagan and his writing partner, Jeff Howard, is definitely an expanded version of his the original idea. The film is the story of the Russell family that takes us traveling back and forth into their past ...
