There is some impressive film making to be found at times throughout Dark Mirror. Shot on Super 16, it is a crisp looking film considering it is very low budget, the camerawork is solid with a feeling of claustrophobia as you are trapped in the house along side the Deborah character. There is also some very cool and different looking visual effects to portray the supernatural aspects of Dark Mirror, and one of the cooler effects is when Deborah takes the photo of the bathroom mirror and it has a ripple effect with a constant flash from her camera's flash bulb as it goes throughout the mirror's multiple dimensions.Read more ›
This was a promising movie that ultimately did not deliver. The cast is great. The art direction is uncanny, and the film itself is brilliant in spots - absolutely brilliant. There is one scene near the end of the film where a character is being confronted with an as-yet undisclosed reality, and what she says (I know that) and the way she says it are pitch perfect in context. Almost all of the characterization right down to the smallest of parts is right on. The film even passes the Bechdel Test (though that doesn't prevent its use of some negative female stereotyping). Unfortunately, most of the plot seems to have been frankenfilmed together from better material. The strange new/old house. The busy distracted husband. The isolated mother. The twists at the end.
Some of these events are unbelievable. Her neighbor is a carefree exhibitionist? What? Her personality was just bizarre. I had to laugh whenever the two women would have conversations because they were two VERY different women. Anyway the exhibitionist woman probably isn't as bizarre as the photographer however- the photographer constantly has really horrible nightmares and visions involving bloody deaths, and the scene with the woman in the parking lot making severe threats towards the photographer for apparently hitting her car is another unusual piece of exaggerated writing that didn't quite make sense given its placement in the storyline (near the beginning).
A tacky piece of writing comes near the beginning when the photographer and her mother are having an in-depth conversation about mirrors and that her house was apparently blessed for having protective mirrors. Something about demons being drawn to mirrors, getting sucked in and not being able to escape. This whole scene just destroyed the horror effect and brought forward an unforgivable degree of tackiness instead. That's NOT what the writers were going for either but that's the way it came across.
To make matters more confusing, the photographer woman apparently has delusional problems and sees things that aren't really happening (or sees images in the mirror- these are the scary parts).Read more ›
