Goofs

Near the beginning of the movie, a woman dies when a cut appears on her neck. The cut bisected the jugular vein, therefore the bleeding should have been far more severe than depicted. See more »

Pretty creepy and effective South Korean horror.
26 December 2004 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

Wu Young-min, a former policeman who inadvertently brought about the death of his partner during a face off with a criminal,has quit the police force and now heads up security at Dreamapia Department Store as an employee of the security company SecuZone.Having been caught up in the situation at the department store Wu comes across his former rival and co-worker Ha Hyun-su,who now heads the investigation into the recent murders linked with mirrors.A mysterious woman Lee Ji-hyun is found lingering about the crime scenes.Without wishing it,Wu is drawn into the creepy mystery surrounding the murders."Into the Mirror" is a creepy South Korean horror with some striking visuals.There is very little gore,fortunately the aura of distinctive mood is clearly visible.The acting is great and the climax totally creeped me out.All in all if you are a fan of recent slew of Asian horror give this one a look.8 out of 10.
