Editorial Reviews

Lisa Vidal of ER delivers a stunning performance as Deborah Martin, a former photographer turned stay-at-home mom who moves her family into a strange old house filled with cut-glass windows and mirrors. But when Deborah begins seeing chilling visions within the reflections, she will become obsessed with trying to capture the truth behind the house s dark secret. Has Deborah accidentally discovered an alternate reality that unleashes a homicidal evil, or is she trapped within the terrifying recesses of the female mind? David Chisum (One Life To Live), Lupe Ontiveros (Real Women Have Curves) and Christine Lakin (Valentine) star in this provocative horror thriller with a killer twist that became a smash hit on IFC Festival Direct.

First time director, Pablo Proenza brings a dash originality and a nice hint of film making skill to 2009's independent thriller, Dark Mirror. A film about a lonely house wife Deborah (Lisa Vidal) that is going through the motions of moving into a huge new house and spending most of her time alone in it while her husband Jim (David Chisum)is away at work. All of this alone time gives Deborah a little too much time spent in her own head, and after she takes a photo of her bathroom mirror, she begins seeing things around her house that cause her to question her sanity. It's not the most original of stories,but you will find yourself engaged in this tale either way. There is some very solid acting, mainly from Vidal, who's Deborah character caries the film on her shoulders, and Vidal is quite capable of carrying the heavy load. When Chism is on screen, he brings some solid game too, and some of the best scenes involve interaction between Deborah and Jim, as they have some great back and forth banter guided by some witty and well written dialogue.

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.

This movie centers around a photographer who moves into a new home (with her family), then comes to believe that by photographing someone, that person will soon die. Obviously, there are questions of real cause and effect, insanity, reality, etc. The movie is generally well done, good production values, high image quality, etc., such that it feels high-ish budget (and that's a compliment). The mood throughout is creepy, and almost relentlessly so, never abating to anything else. The problem though, is that the film is never really scary. Sequences occur in which I think the director intended to elicit a scare among the audience, but it fails to do so in every scene. Not sure exactly why, but the climactic build just didn't work, and I do scare fairly easily. Bottom line, its a worthy rental, just don't expect an earth shattering horror.

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.

Dark Mirror is a pretty decent horror film but there's definitely several really unforgivably lackluster moments that prevent it from being more intense. It's about a photographer that soon realizes every time she snaps a photo of somebody, they either disappear or become murdered. Is it just a coincidence?

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).
