Kiefer Sutherland comes face-to-face with the ultimate forces of evil in this shocking and terrifying horror from the director of The Hills Have Eyes. Attempting to pick up the shattered pieces of his life, a disgraced former cop (Sutherland) takes a routine security job guarding the charred ruins of the once-famous Mayflower department store in New York. But the terrifying images he sees in the building's ornate mirrors will send him on a pulse-pounding mission to unravel deadly secrets from the past... before they destroy his entire family.
I hadn't heard of this movie before finding it on this site, not being a hard core Kiefer fan. However i have to say that though it is a 2008 movie I thought it stands its ground well against more recent films. The story line was reasonable and ran throughout the 106 minutes. The acting was good as was the special effects. If you've not seen this before and like a thriller/horror movie, don't be put off because its a 2008 movie, give it a go.........
This film started bad then got worse and worse! I kept waiting for something to happen but it was a total let down. The only reason I rated this movie 1 was due to it's ending which I think holds a decent concept....would I watch Mirrors 2 because of this...erm....maybe, lol!

Alexandre Aja's 'Switchblade Romance' was an excellent tension filled gore-fest, his remake of 'The Hills Have Eyes' was an equally good gore filled roller coaster, but this is very much an average horror thriller based around possessed mirrors in a derelict department store. Kiefer Sutherland is ok, the story's ok, there are a couple of jump in your seat moments, and there's quite a good twist in the tale, but just don't expect to be blown away.
Whilst the pretext of this movie is brilliant. The trailers draw you in. However the film its self is dreadul
Tries to be frighening but is not!!
The acting is good, and the suspense does build up however at the end of the day nothing of what is happening or why it is happening is explained at all...Leaves you confused and a bit let down and wondering why you had wasted your time watching it.
