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.

Scorsese! It's Scorsese!
24 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A young Sam Waterston plays an arrogant film director who specializes in violent zombie movies. He has little respect for his audiences and lives life high off the hog. After a Dick Cavett interview, he goes home. He confronts a fan, sleeping in front of his door, and after cruelly facing off with him, he makes his way into the house. At this point, he begins to see images in whatever mirror happens to be around. It is always a white faced figure with a garrote, ready to strangle him. At first he assumes it's the kid at the doorstep, but then realizes he is in real danger. A worthy scene takes place in a parking lot entrance where he attacks a guard and is thrown in jail. He continues, out of his mind, eventually crawling into a shell and exhibiting outrageously terrified behavior. This is nicely paced and quite unsettling. Besides that, who, other than Steven Spielberg, could get Martin Scorsese to direct an episode.
