A woman tries to exonerate her brother, who was convicted of murder, by proving that the crime was committed by a supernatural phenomenon.
A possessed mirror, a brother accused, a determined sister. It all makes for quite enjoyable watching. While it’s certainly odd to hear Karen Gillan speaking in an American accent, she does a decent job of the lead role, alongside Brenton Thwaites who plays her brother, .
Driven by the desire to clear her brother’s name, albeit against his wishes, Kaylie (Gillan) spends her adult life tracking down the mirror that possessed her mother, and drover her father to kill.
Although this film has some jumpy moments, it relies mostly on a psychological aspect of how this mirror can make you see things, and believe things, and drive you to do horrible deeds.
Intertwined with the present day, the film does an excellent job of flashing back without using flashbacks. Brother and sister encounter their child selves while being psychologically tortured by this mirror which is hell bent on taking their lives.
“Why don’t they just smash the mirror?!” I hear you cry. Well, watch the film. It’s worth finding out for yourself.
With a nice thread of blood, jump scares and mystery, this film ends on a nice twist. It didn’t scare me pantsless but was an enjoyable movie nonetheless.
