James Cameron exemplified how traditional storytellers just don’t understand how to tell stories in VR with his recent comment : “If you want to move through a virtual reality it’s called a video game, it’s been around forever.“
…This isn’t to say that there is no chance for a rift enabled movie as there is one standout example of a movie that has been adapted to work with the Oculus Rift has been the Lovecraftian horror film “Banshee Chapter: Oculus Rift Edition”.

BIG NEWS: Sunchaser’s BANSHEE CHAPTER is the first feature film to be released for virtual reality.
