Mirrors: Film #36 of Film 365

Monday 23rd May 2011

Director: Alexandre Aja
Year: 2008
Stars: Kiefer Sutherland, Paula Patton, Cameron Boyce, Erica Gluck, Amy Smart

A psychological horror movie starring Kiefer Sutherland. What's not to like? It turns out, quite a lot. This isn't a bad movie - it's just a really, really mediocre one.

Kiefer Sutherland plays a detective who has been suspended and ends up taking a job at a burnt-down department store to make ends meet. After he starts working there, strange nasty things start to happen involving mirrors.

There are no surprises here. If you've ever watched a horror movie before you'll see what's coming around every corner. The ending does redeem the movie slightly, but not enough to make it worth watching.

Rating: 2.5 out of 5

About Me

My photo
I live in Bristol with my husband Dan (who I married in July 2007), my son Joe (born 2012) and daughter Jess (born 2015). I work at UWE (the University of the West of England) in Bristol as a Research and Open Access Librarian. I'm orginally from Exeter, so moving back to Bristol is a bit like coming home - especially as I studied for my undergraduate degree here (also at UWE). I love travelling and movies, although I get to do a lot less of both since the birth of our children. Although we have still managed to fit in holidays to the Isles of Scilly, Chamonix and a summer in California since Joe was born.
