This trailer for the 2013 film Oculus contains the following poem:

See the mirror hanging there
Face of silver, frame of black
Oculus of glass, I stare
I can feel you staring back
I hear your voice, believe your lies
A window, portal, darkened door
Should you claim my staring eyes
My soul you'll hold forevermore

Was this poem written for the trailer, or was it taken from another work?

UPDATE: It looks to have been written by the director.

Before you catch the movie in theaters, you may want to think twice before looking long and hard into the mirror, and remember this poem by Flanagan:

"See the mirror, hanging there Face of silver, frame of black Oculus of glass, I stare I can feel you staring back I hear your voice Believe your lies A window, portal, darkened door Should you claim my staring eyes My soul you’ll hold... forever more..."

    Great find! I suggested an edit to include a link to the actual article instead of the cached version, and also to improve the formatting. – pacoverflow Oct 19 '14 at 6:40
