AKA El Espejo De La Bruja. A Masterpiece of the Mexican Horror Movement! A poetic tale of madness and horror from director Chano Urueta. The Witch's Mirror is one of the landmark films of the Mexi-horror genre. A benevolent witch (Isabela Corona) enchants a magic mirror to protect her adopted daughter Elena (Dina de Marco) from her cruel husband (Armando Calvo). When the incantation fails and the girl is murdered, the witch vows revenge using every unholy principle of the supernatural that she can conjure.

"The Witch's Mirror" is one of the few horror films I've seen that relies solely on horror to tell it's story. A surgeon murders his wife and his mother-in-law, a practicing witch, plots her revenge. When he remarries, the mother-in-law, now his housekeeper, sets her revenge into action with a host of occult devices at her fingertips. One of these being a huge mirror through which she summons the ghost of her daughter back to haunt the newlywed couple. But this is only part of the story. The new wife's face and hands end up being being accidentally burned and the doctor attempts to restore them through bloody surgeries and skin grafts. But the avenging witch and her ghost daughter aren't through yet. The acting in "Witch's Mirror" ranges from wildly overwrought to solemnly sincere and is never boring. The photography is excellent and glorious in b&w and the whole film drips with Gothic atmosphere. There are some wonderfully creepy scenes throughout including a piano playing by itself and scenes of the witch/mother-in-law summoning the powers of darkness to her aid. I loved this film. The DVD print from CasaNegra is immaculate. It's subtitled and there are lots of interesting extras. Not all Mexican horror films were campy and silly. "The Witch's Mirror" is a good example of a fine director in control of his subject matter and who intended to tell a horror story as a horror story. Recommended and enjoy.

Wow!! Viewing this film was a real kick. Like another reviewer here I have seen and loved many of the old school gothic style horror films from Universal, Hammer, AIP, AMICUS and many of the early Italian horror films from Mario Bava and others. Well, I thought that I had seen just about all the genre had to offer and would probably never see anything new from this area of horror film again; for as the saying goes..."they just don't make films like that anymore". Fortunately I've been ignorant of Mexican horror cinema all these years. Oh sure I had heard about films from Mexico that featured masked wrestler heroes fighting vampire devil robots from Mars but I, quite ignorantly, thought that was about it for Mexican horror flicks. All I can say is I was wrong and am more than glad to admit it.

"The Witch's Mirror" is a worthy gothic horror film effort that fits quite snugly in among the old Hammer and Universal films. In fact it borrows quite liberally and shamelessly from many of those old classics. While watching it I kept seeing elements from all kinds of sources including: "Rebecca", "Frankenstein", "Mad Love", traditional ghost stories, revenge plots, etc. Now you might think that such a hodge podge could never work well together but director Chano Urueta pulls it together seamlessly, giving those of us who love this kind of thing an hour and a half of thrills and chills.

I'm not good at summarizing plots but here is a quote from the product description: "A poetic tale of madness and horror from director Chano Urueta. The Witch's Mirror is one of the landmark films of the Mexi-horror genre. A benevolent witch (Isabela Corona) enchants a magic mirror to protect her adopted daughter Elena (Dina de Marco) from her cruel husband (Armando Calvo).

This is Mexican Horror. It's funny, but I've been a wandering fan of horror films all my life, and I'd thought I'd seen just about all the classic horror cinema that was worth watching since I was a kid, Italion Giallo and Zombie films, The Universal Horror cycle, the British Hammer Horror, the AIP cheepies, some of which are absolute gems. Then suddenly comes along "The Witch's Mirror", which I read about on a website that said this was an absolutely wonderful horror film, with a great story, and dripping with atmosphere. I'd always thought Mexican Horror was supposed to be cheesy and hokey. But I've got to tell you, except for a few things limited by the budget that this little gem had, there isn't much cheese here, folks. This is a very well made horror film, and yes it is dark and atmospheric. It is old world horror, dredged up from folklore and given a classy coming out party.

The story is a simple, yet layered story of revenge. Take the basic premise of a husband whose tired of his first wife and having an affair with another woman, who by the way doesn't know he's still married, and he decides to kill his wife so he can marry the woman he loves.

Now add in some satanic black magic. A godmother who is a full-blown powerful witch, who prays to Satan to let her protect her goddaughter (the wife) from the impending murder, only to have the big red cheese say "No!" And he absolutely means NO! So the murder takes place, the witch decides on revenge, which of course satan agrees whole-heartedly with. In todays shallow scripted horror vehicles, that would be enough. Witch gets horrific revenge-Beautiful, innocent "other woman" becomes horribly scared by fire. The end.

Wait a minute though!

Thank you, Casa Negra, for finally releasing great Mexican horror films with the attention they deserve. Gone are the days of these under-appreciated movies being rendered practically unavailable. I just watched this DVD and was amazed by the sound and video quality (especially considering it's age). It's great to know these movies can be resurrected, and that such effort is put into the details.

I'm definitely looking forward to future releases.
