Well that's me dome looking in the mirror. The story is about a ex-cop lands an odd job working as a security guard at a burnt down shopping center in New York City. The blaze killed dozens of people over 50 years ago and strange things have been happening since. When he starts seeing odd things in the mirrors he begins to look for answers. He has to find out why the fire was started and what the mirrors want from him before it is too late. This movie can be scary and gross with the blood and gore, but it dose have it's dull and flat moments that sometimes made it hard to watch at times.

A Lot of the Wrong Things

DarkCritic - wrote on 01/10/2010

So I decided that I was going to watch a good horror movie. I rummaged through my mom's DVD collect and found Mirrors. I thought for a moment, "Hey! This could actually be good." Nope, I was wrong. Guess what guys, another sucky horror movie. Surprise!

The story for the movie was at least a little unique, save for the fact that the movie was a sad excuse for a remake. Keifer Sutherland, who we all know as Jack Bauer from 24, was playing a character who acted... like Jack Bauer from 24. Wow! What a jump! But hey, I'll give him credit, he's good at that. Hell, even the filming was like 24. The camera angles and the other characters were all basically in a cracked version of 24. Unfortunately, I grew out of that phase, which made the movie almost hard to watch.

The acting in the other …

Suspended NYPD detective Ben Carson (Kiefer Sutherland) is forced to take a nighttime security guard position at the burnt-out ruins of a department store. As Ben does his rounds each night, he starts seeing grisly visions in the store's mirrors.

Directed by French horror director Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes, High Tension), MIR├čORS is short on plot and disturbingly gory. This brutal horror movie is graphically, grotesquely, and grimly violent. It features extensive sequences of special-effects gore and horrifically violent images. Aja's other horror films were also grisly, but had a certain style to them, in …

Seven years bad luck

Creepy in parts, but too familiar amongst all the J-Horror films that are being poorly remade in the United States. This is especially due to the fact that subsequent to seeing "Mirrors", I watched both the original and the remake of "Shutter", and both were superior.

The thing that lifted "Mirrors" a little above the average, though, was its ending. Not necessarily a twist or a surprise, but just... cool.

The formula is getting old. Some spirit is restless due to a tragic event in the past. The only difference is the form they take in the present. A videotape. A camera. A cell phone. Spirits seem to like technology. Oooh... is there a statement being made here?

Here, the form is a little more old fashioned. Yet it's also more high-concept. It's not just a mirror, but …
