Awkward psychological thriller
19 May 2002 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

There's not a great deal to recommend Mirrors, but it does have a few virtues. Location work in New Orleans naturally gives this film a boost, as does an attractive leading lady in Kitty Winn (this was her last feature to date after flirting with the big time in the first two Exorcist films). Peter Donat is still active of course, and he's well cast as the handsome doctor who takes care of the emotionally shattered Winn. Unfortunately the film can't seem to decide whether it's a purely psychological thriller or a straight ahead horror film, and the ending is unsatisfying and unrevealing.
