Storyline

Ben became alcoholic and was retired from the police force after killing a man in a shooting. His marriage was also destroyed and now he is living in the apartment of his younger sister Angie. However he has not been drinking for three months and sees the employment as a chance to rebuild his life. When he goes to the rounds in his first night, he finds that the mirrors are impeccably clean and his colleague explains that the former night watch was obsessed with the mirrors. After a couple of nights, Ben sees weird images in the mirrors, but due to the lack of credibility of his past, his ex-wife Amy believes he has hallucinations as a side effect of his medication. When Angie is found brutally murdered in her bathtub, Ben discovers that there is an evil force in the mirror that is chasing him and ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Really Enjoyed This Movie
9 May 2009 | by (London England) – See all my reviews

I am not a big horror fan but do like supernatural thrillers. That being said I didn't really like The Ring or any of the Hollywood remakes of the Japanese films with spooky kids with black hair and eyes etc...YAWN!!!

I did enjoy this film very much, I liked Keifer's performance and could feel his distraught emotions when he had to show them. I may now check out 24 as a result.

The other actors/actresses in the film were equally good, it was well directed and well written for this type of film. All in all it made me jump a few times and I was interested in the outcome. Maybe there could be a sequel.
