Storyline

Years ago, Tim Russel's father committed a horrible atrocity; it was always Tim's contention that the large ornate mirror his father possessed was the cause of this terrible event. Now after years of research, Tim has traced the bloody trail of destruction that treads in the wake of this dark and forbidding mirror. With a history of over 300 years of mysterious circumstance, Tim intends to capture these horrors on tape and reveal the true nature of evil that lies within. Written by anonymous

Trivia

The third chapter in a planned anthology about the sinister Lasser Glass, "The Man With the Plan" is actually the first installment to be filmed. Of the nine possible chapters to shoot, Flanagan and Seidman opted for this one purely because of budgetary constraints - the single character/single location nature of this chapter made it ideal. This chapter also gives the viewer a detailed history of the mirror itself, which the filmmakers wanted to include in their first film so that the other chapters would have the proper context.

What a great movie.
8 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie at the Dragon*Con 2006 Independent Film Festival. It was awarded 2 awards at that festival and rightfully so. This is probably the best short horror film I've ever seen. The simplicity of camera usage really works.The main character is brilliant. His acting is quite good and is believable. The 3 cameras in the room with Tim Russel make his insanity that much more believable. I love it. I have talked with Mike and he says that they are in the process of making a feature film compassing the first three chapters together. I can't wait. I will be first in line for that film. The effects of the "mirror" creatures are used so well. You don't see them for very long so it scares the pants off of you when you do. I recommend this film to anyone who wants to watch a good horror movie for once. Best 32 minutes of spine tingling horror I've ever seen. Thanks Mike.
