In New York, the former NYPD detective Ben Carson is hired to work as night watch of the remains of the Mayflower Department Store that was partially destroyed by fire many years ago. Ben became alcoholic and was retired from the police force after killing a man in a shooting. His marriage was also destroyed and now he is living in the apartment of his younger sister Angie. However he has not been drinking for three months and sees the employment as a chance to rebuild his life. When he goes to the rounds in his first night, he finds that the mirrors are impeccably clean and his colleague explains that the former night watch was obsessed by the mirrors. After a couple of nights, Ben sees weird images in the mirrors, but due to the lack of credibility of his past, his ex-wife Amy believes he has hallucinations as a side effect of his medication. When Angie is found brutally murdered in her bathtub, Ben discovers that there is an evil force in the mirror that is chasing him and jeopardizing his family.

Film Review

Hollywood has long regarded the European, especially the British and the French, cinema as a good source on which it can rely whenever its own wells of creative inspiration run dry (as they frequently do). Recently, however, it has widened its geographical reach, at least as far as the horror genre is concerned, and has taken to raiding the Far Eastern cinema in its desperate search for new source material. "Mirrors" is one of a number of Japanese or South Korean horror films which have been remade for American audiences.There has always been something slightly disturbing about mirrors, and the way in which they reflect our world in reverse. Lewis Carroll exploited this disturbing sensation in "Alice through the Looking-Glass", ever since when the expression "looking-glass world" has referred to an inverted or distorted version of reality. "Mirrors" also tries to tap into the sense that a mirror cannot reflect something without distorting it.Ben…

This is one of those movies that has a good preview that catches your attention, but even as you watch the preview you can tell that the movie can't take the idea anywhere interesting. Any elaboration on the intriguing idea will just ruin it. If you thought you saw all the good parts and could skip the movie, you're right. When you watch the preview, and you see the images in the mirror act independently of the people reflected and make threatening faces when the people turn away, and you wonder what is going on and if the explanation will be at all interesting, the answer is no. The more you learn about what's going on, the less interesting it gets.You also see Keifer Sutherland, as a security guard working in a crappy looking darkened building, and you think how it might be nice to see him in a different kind of role, especially after so many seasons of 24.Well, predictably, the film's creators decided not to take too many risks, and Sutherland turns out to be ju…

A disappointingly mundane Hollywood horror outing directed Alexandra Aja and sandwiched between two of his other films I consider excellent – THE HILLS HAVE EYES and PIRANHA 3D. MIRRORS's failure is all the more apparent when you compare the nature of this to the vitality and fun of the others; it's as if the decision was made to produce a deathly dull picture and somebody forgot to invest it with a single spark of life along the way.The plot itself is workable, almost reminiscent of a good low budget '80s horror: mirrors are possessed by spirits of the dead. Unfortunately, little is made of this premise, and other than a couple of gruesome murder scenes the picture is entirely dull. Kiefer Sutherland, wading through murky waters in search of a paycheck, plays a family man caught up in the midst of supernatural evil but even he seems to realise he's mired in a film that doesn't go anywhere.Along the way, the talents of Jason Flemyng and Julian Glover are …
