Chance Miller is a loser with a lousy job, married with Jackie and owing money to a loan shark and to his landlord. One day, Chance brings an ancient vase to the antique shop owned by Walter Markham expecting to sell it for US$ 45,000.00 but Walter offers only US$ 5,000.00. Walter tells that Chance has misunderstood their conversation in a party and shows an ancient mirror to him. Chance stares at his image and has an argument with Walter, killing him. Soon Chance meets his doppelganger in the beginning of a tragic night. Written by

John Dahl, the man from Joyride but also some episodes of Dexter, much acclaimed, and True Blood, better than Twilight, gives us this weird tale. My main mystery is how comes that the so called ghost of himself appears? He looks into a mirror and then things happen, it is never explained but it doesn't matter because you never see that mirror again. The story evolves into a kind of killer story. But again, I liked it, not to bloody but it is the brutality of the killer that works. And again like the episode before it has a real ending. Is it because those two were made by directors used by doing series? I can't tell.
