Rare but disturbing movie to find
4 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

I first saw "Dark Reflection" on Fox a long time ago when it was the made for TV version. I only saw parts of it though. Unfortunately, I can't find it anywhere.

The thing that's disturbing is that Elizabeth (Lisa Zane) doesn't know her spouse enough to where she thinks a "Look a like" criminal is her husband Ben and accepts him just because "He acts a certain way" during a certain moment, yet she knows enough to think somethings messed up because the criminal "Doesn't know what her son likes." At the end where the criminal falls through the ceiling, her husband Ben doesn't come down from the ceiling to get his wife, especially the scene where you see Elizabeth (Lisa Zane) at the art gallery. You'd think Ben would've continued to pursue his wife and rid the criminal. There's other scenes in the movie that irks me, but I don't want someone to think "I'm taking the movie too seriously."
