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.

It proves and shows what happens when you get to caught up in your own creations!
3 June 2014 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This "Amazing Stories" episode from season one titled "Mirror, Mirror" is one little clever and neat one that haunts and it's one to remember as it teaches the lesson of not needing to mix work and home life as one's creations can become them! Well anyway directed by legendary Martin Scorsese the tale involves a horror author Jordan Manmouth("Law and Order's Sam Waterston)who's popular yet he's uptight and one little arrogant rich lonely guy who loves his works and creations as evidenced by the posters up of his monster characters in his mansion home. Yet Jordan claims nothing bothers him all of a sudden he's haunted time after time by a monstrous creation as this hooded figure shows up in the mirror. This is one chilling episode that shows some can't break away from their work no matter how hard they try as their own creations even become them!
