This week’s “Oculus,” which is easily the scariest horror movie since last summer’s “The Conjuring” (watch for our review later this week), centers around a pair of siblings who attempt to destroy a mirror that is somehow possessed… and responsible for a family tragedy many years earlier.
And while the mirror in “Oculus,” with its embroidered frame and air of foreboding, is certainly the most recently inanimate object to scare the pants off of moviegoers, it isn’t the first. Not by a long shot.
So we decided to rundown the scariest inanimate objects in the history of movies. These are all objects that you wouldn’t think twice about… until they show signs of demonic possession, occult curses, or just plain nastiness.
