Product Description

Ben Carson (KIEFER SUTHERLAND) has seen better days. It's been nearly a year since the volatile detective was suspended from the NYPD for fatally shooting another undercover officer, an accident that not only cost him his job, but fueled the alcoholism and anger that has alienated his wife and kids and left him crashing on his sister's couch in Queens. Desperate to pull his life together and reconnect with his family, Carson takes a job as a night watchman at the burned-out ruins of the Mayflower department store. What once was a symbol of prosperity and grandeur now sits decaying in the darkness like a rotting ghost ship, destroyed by a massive fire that devoured numerous innocent lives. As Carson patrols the eerie, charred remains of the store, he begins to notice something sinister about the ornate mirrors that adorn the Mayflower walls. Reflected in the gigantic shimmering glass are horrific images that stun Carson. Beyond projecting gruesome images of the past, the mirrors appear to be manipulating reality as well. When Carson sees his own reflection being tortured, he suffers the physical effects of his fractured visions. Suddenly the troubled ex-cop finds himself battling his personal demons and the ones that have hijacked his reflection, tormenting him with convulsions, spontaneous bleeding and near suffocation. His sympathetic but skeptical sister Angela (AMY SMART) dismisses these bizarre "nightmares" as a consequence of his stress and guilt over the accidental shooting, but Carson's estranged wife Amy (PAULA PATTON), a no-nonsense NYPD medical examiner, is less forgiving. Her husband's increasingly erratic behavior frightens her, pushing his family farther away - and, she fears, it's putting their children in danger. But a much deadlier threat looms, trapped within the mirrors and reflective surfaces that pervade their everyday life. As Carson investigates the mysterious disappearance of a Mayflower security guard and its possible connection to his ghastly visions, he realizes that a malevolent, otherworldly force is using reflections as a gateway to terrorize him and his family. If he has any hope of saving his wife and children from a horrifying death, Carson must somehow uncover the truth behind the mirrors - and convince Amy to help him battle the greatest evil he has ever faced.

Kiefer Sutherland anchors this supernatural thriller from Hills Have Eyes (2006) director Alexandra Aja about an abandoned building that harbors vengeful spirits. Sutherland brings a degree of his 24 intensity to his role as a disgraced police detective working a security detail at a derelict building. A package from a former security guard--who commits suicide in the film’s eerie opening moments--alerts Sutherland to the building’s tragic past, as well as to the presence of dark forces with the ability to harm the living; once aware of their presence, Sutherland and his family become their next target. Mirrors works best in its first third, where Joseph Nemec’s production design delivers maximum chills. Where the film stumbles is its rush to provide a slam-bang conclusion filled with CGI and other effects, resulting in an unsatisfying, open-ended conclusion that does much to dispel the film’s impressively Gothic atmosphere. The unrated DVD presentation differs from the theatrical cut by mere seconds, and the alternate ending included among the battery of deleted scenes is a more satisfying conclusion than the one used in the film. --Paul Gaita

If you like horror movies you won't be disappointed in this. Buy it. The movie has an interesting premise involving radical treatment for schizophrenia, which results in a supernatural side effect involving mirrors. There are some "very" brutal scenes in this movie. The theme is actually very creative and Sutherland does an excellent job of making you feel the horror. I liked the ending. It was a nicely twisted finish. The disk functioned perfectly, audio and video quality were great.

I love this movie, it scares the hell out of me. LOL
Kiefer Sutherland is one of my favorite actors (like father like son), although I think Kiefer is actually an even better actor than his father Donald.
This movie really succeeds in conveying a seriously HAUNTED and SPINE CHILLING atmosphere.
Plot development is kind of weird, in fact it's kind of over the top (not too much) but it does work.
It's hardly the most original of premises but then again what is, seriously, everybody copies everybody else to some degree or another, but the psychological and terrifying atmospheric elements are so well done.

Angela Carson: Mirrors are just glass and silver, Ben. That's it. There's nothing behind them.

Short Attention Span Summary (SASS):

1. Ex-cop Ben Carson (Keifer Sutherland) is forced by necessity to take a job as a night watchman at a Department Store that has been gutted by a major fire.
2. It doesn't take him 24 hours to find out that something's not quite right with his new job
3. Sure enough, he soon learns that the Department Store was once a totally different type of institution, and that the man who burned it down had also killed his own family. Strangely enough, the large mirrors in the building have all survived the destruction.
4. When the hallucinations start, Ben starts digging around, and discovers a clue - the word "esseker"
5. No prizes for guessing that something evil lurks in the mirror world, and soon Ben's family become targets.
6. It's up to Ben to find a way to save his family, and his time is almost up.

This is a creepy, gritty sort of horror flick that will have you thinking twice about looking into the mirror, even if you've never before been able to pass one by without checking yourself out. A bit of gore here and there adds to the drama, but the spine-tingling bits occur in the quieter moments. The ending however, isn't so much anticlimactic as understated. Recommended for folk who like to get their creep on.

Ben Carson: You gotta be careful of the water, it creates reflections!

Great atmosphere potential which really seems underused, and the much frenzied Sutherland action in the final resolution make it seem like an episode of '24' (almost without breaking stride). Sutherland is not a very diverse actor (here anyway) and his performance comes across rather pedestrian.
Oh, and it also reeks of 'Old Baur Aftershave'.

I was expecting something in league with that incredible Thriller episode featuring William Shatner, 'The Hungry Glass'. Not.

What an enjoyable concept of the mirrors trying to kill everyone in a world that's reversed and backwards and twisted. Great move with a solid story line and a luring plot that pulls viewers in. I loved this movie and hope to see many more like it in the near future.
