Storyline

An egotistical horror novelist dismisses the supernatural in real life, but he is forced to reconsider his disbelief when he finds himself pursued by a bizarre figure with a misshapen face. The strange thing? He can only see the man when he looks in the mirror. Each time he looks into a reflective surface, he finds the weird figure gaining on him with malicious intent, which has him terrified of what will happen if the ghastly figure should ever reach him.

Decent but not enough
23 June 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Mirror, Mirror" is a decent enough episode of "Amazing Stories". However, considering how bad many of the shows were, the program sure needed a grand slam to infuse interest for this short-lived anthology series. Decent enough....but nothing more despite the episode being directed by Martin Scorsese.

The story involves a famous horror director (oddly, Sam Watterson was cast in this role). Despite his fame, life is about to get craptastic because suddenly he starts seeing a ghoulish guy chasing him. Yet, whenever he turns to see him, the ghoul disappears. There really isn't anything more to it than that...and that's the problem. A thread-bare plot and a few chills aren't enough to make this anything more than just mediocre.
