Goofs

After Deborah takes a picture directly into the bathroom mirror, then falls backwards into the tub, she looks at the resulting shot and it shows her in mid-fall with the camera clearly pointed at the ceiling. Even if the mirror has magical or mystic powers, the digital camera would have reproduced the image presented to the lens, not the point of view of the mirror. See more »

A Polanski kind of scary...
23 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dark Mirror is one best horror flicks of 2009! It's scary but not the usual, banal 'blood and gore' scary - it's a Polanski kind of scary, a thinking person's horror film. The performances are fantastic and Lisa Vidal is mesmerizing. The scene in the bathroom where she's trying to convince her husband something is wrong with the house is absolutely brilliant - the kind of scene that is truly unforgettable, in that wonderfully unsettling way. Curious to see what this director does next because his talent really shines through despite the limitations of a presumably small budget. I think horror fans will definitely dig this flick - but I also think anyone who likes creative and intelligent film-making will appreciate it as well.
