Win Tickets to See OCULUS in Lots of Cities

You see what it wants you to see, and this weekend, the new horror movie Oculus wants you to see it. The film sees Karen Gillan as a young woman who’s trying to prove her brother (played by Brenton Thwaites) is innocent of murder because of supernatural forces that have plagued their family for years, due to a strange and creepy mirror in their house. The problem is, the mirror changes perception, and soon neither of the siblings are sure what’s real, what’s imagined, and what’s ruining their lives. The film also stars Katee Sackhoff and Rory Cochrane as the kids’ parents.

So compelled are we by the power of the looking glass, we want to make sure lots of you get a chance to see the Oculus in as many U.S. cities as possible. In fact, 160 people will get to see this movie for free. How does that grab you? We’re giving away two pairs of tickets in each of the 40 different cities (that means two different people will win two tickets) to see the film this weekend.

What cities? Well, here they are in random order:

* New York
* Los Angeles
* San Francisco-San Jose
* Chicago
* Philadelphia
* Dallas
* Washington, DC
* Boston
* Atlanta
* Phoenix
* Houston
* Detroit
* Seattle-Tacoma
* Miami
* Minneapolis
* Denver
* Tampa
* Sacramento
* Orlando
* Cleveland
* San Diego
* St. Louis
* Portland
* Baltimore
* Las Vegas

* Raleigh-Durham
* Pittsburgh
* Charlotte
* Indianapolis
* Kansas City
* Austin
* Hartford-New Haven
* Nashville
* Columbus
* Milwaukee
* Cincinnati
* Honolulu
* New Orleans
* San Antonio

So, all you have to do to enter is comment below with what common household object scares you the most (doesn’t have to make sense to us) along with your name and which of the above cities is the one nearest you. You have to get yourself to the theater, but once you do, you’ll have two tickets to see the show. You’ve only got until midnight on Thursday, April 10th, 2014 to enter, so don’t dawdle, or you’ll be driven insane from the mirror ghost known as regret.
