Synopsis


Mirrors
Kiefer Sutherland stars as an NYPD detective-turned-security guard who discovers something sinister lurking in the mirrors of a fire-damaged department store in Haute Tension writer/director Alexandre Aja's menacing study in the origins of evil. It's been just about a year since mercurial police detective Ben Carson (Sutherland) was suspended from the NYPD for the fatal shooting of an undercover officer, and ever since that fateful day he's been locked in a self-destructive spiral of anger and alcoholism. Increasingly isolated from his wife and kids, Ben spends most nights crashed-out at his sister Angela's (Amy Smart) apartment in Queens. But Ben hasn't given up hope just yet, and in order to get his life back together and prove that he's still capable of supporting his family he takes a job as the night watchman at the Mayflower department store. The Mayflower used to be a lavish symbol of inner-city prosperity, that is, until a raging inferno gutted the building while claiming numerous lives in the process. These days, the Mayflower is a scorched reminder of human misery, the ornate mirrors therein reflecting a suffering so profound that it begins to wear on Ben's already-fragile psyche. Not only that, but whatever force dwells behind the shimmering glass seems to have gained the power to alter reality as well. After Ben gazes into the mirrors and sees a vision of himself being relentlessly tortured, he is horrified to experience violent convulsions, spontaneous bleeding, and frightening asphyxiation. And while his sister is always willing to lend a sympathetic ear, she chalks the anomalies up to an unusually potent mix of stress and anxiety. Unfortunately for Ben, his estranged wife, Amy (Paula Patton), isn't nearly as forgiving. A prosaic NYPD medical examiner who has seen her fair share of tragedy, Amy fears that Ben's erratic behavior could be placing their children in danger. Later, as Ben begins to draw connections between his increasingly gruesome visions and a former Mayflower security guard who vanished without a trace, he begins to suspect that an unimaginable evil is using the mirrors as a gateway into the real world, and that his family is in mortal danger from forces beyond their realm of understanding. Perhaps if he Ben can manage to convince Amy that their children's lives are at risk, he can summon the courage to face the greatest evil he has ever known. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Suspenseful

    Posted

    I first saw this out in theaters, and was blown away by the suspense and original storyline. While the main idea can be seen as a little unbelievable, keep in mind one does not know what is out in the world until one experiences for themselves. Personally, I have an open mind, so the story sold me. Not only that, but I love to watch Sutherland's performances - wide range, he has - especially in a thriller so as this. Though we only really heard his voice in "Phonebooth," he was still chilling in that & it's great to see him in another thriller, and this time get to see him. Last thrill I had from a movie was "Silent Hill," so it's good to feel that startling feeling again. Well done. Overall, the movie's great & I recommend especially for thrill seekers.

    My wife and I saw this film in the theater and again when the unrated version came to DVD. (Of course , the unrated was better.) We loved it both times. You know a horror movie's good when you watch it a second time and it still get's you. This movie is very creepy, very intense, and has a great twist at the end. The plot is great, very unique, and the acting was excellent. You couldn't ask for a better horror movie! I highly recommend it! Also, if you like this, you should definitely watch A Haunting in Connecticut!

    This movie kept me alert throughout with a few good jump scares. The mirror mythology is creepy and fun and the set is amazing, an abandoned department store. The ending got a bit far out there and predictable, but overall it was a good movie.

    Picked this up because I had been meaning to watch it and it was on sale for pretty cheap. Not a fantastic film, but enjoyable nonetheless.

    Weird movie. It caught my eye while browsing Best Buy. Love collecting Blu-Rays. Wasn't a bad movie. Check it out if the price is right.
