The first Mirrors had the perfect ending; it was cruel but beautiful, in a story going full circle kind of way. The ending was so good that I was worried when I heard about the sequel. Mirrors 2 seems to have slipped under the radar, as many fans of the first didn’t even know it existed. It was release, directly to DVD and Blu-ray, on the 19th of this month.
As it turns out Mirrors 2 is not a continuation of number one, it just follows the same rules as the first. There is a part shown on the trailer (below) where a girl crawls out of a mirror and drags someone into it, and I couldn’t help thinking this looks like the Grudge. This might be because the Grudge and Mirrors have something in common, that I didn’t realise, they are both remakes of Asian horror films.
While the first Mirrors varied greatly from the original Korean film Into the Mirror, the story in the sequel is a lot closer.
The story follows a security guard at a boutique store who is haunted by the image of a girl in the mirror. Then one by one his co-workers die in mysterious and unusual deaths (gruesome).
The trailer looks promising, and it’s sure to deliver some gore but will it be scary? It does have one advantage over your average horror flick; odds are viewers will be face to face with ‘the killer’ soon after watching. How much do you trust your reflection?
If nothing else it will make a good movie to watch on Halloween night.
