Stuck In The Middle...
on 26 January 2011
I really love this film!! Until it gets to a certain point.
Everything about MIRRORS is fantastic. I love the acting, the characters and the story. It's very gripping, intriguing and scary in places. I found myself really enjoying it...until the main character goes off in search of a nun and they end up making stuff explode in the cellar. That, to me, completely ruined it for me. Too farfetched and ridiculous, in my opinion, and it shat all over a really decent film =(
I have also seen Mirrors 2, which I was at first avoiding, due to liking (most of) Mirrors so much. I didn't see the point in them remaking it so soon after Mirrors had been released. But one day, i did sit down and have a watch. Again, a really good film, but the beginning bored me haha! I, however, loved the end.
So, for me; combine the start of Mirrors, and all of it's characters, with the storyline and end of Mirrors 2 and you've got a cracking horror film!! Worth a watch, all the same. The bathroom scene is particularly creepy and gross, if you like that kind of thing.
