THERE IS EVIL… ON THE OTHER SIDE.
Disgraced cop Ben Carson (Kiefer Sutherland) is hired as a security guard at an abandoned, burnt-out department store and realizes that evil lurks inside its many mirrors. What a perfect place to put an alcoholic ex-cop, a huge, gothic building that hasn’t been cleaned up after a fire and looks like it was designed for a horror movie. Silly from the start, the film turns alternately stupid and laughable before it collapses completely with a loud showdown between our hero and what must be an Exorcist reject.
2008-U.S. 110 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by Alexandre Aja. Cast: Kiefer Sutherland (Ben Carson), Amy Smart (Angela Carson), Paula Patton (Amy Carson), Cameron Boyce, Erica Gluck, Mary Beth Peil.
Trivia: A remake of the Korean film Into the Mirror (2001). Followed by a direct-to-DVD sequel, Mirrors 2 (2010).
