Storyline

A singer struggles to dance well in rehearsal with her band. A power outage leaves her alone in the studio, reviewing her life, when a mysterious woman appears through the mirror and gives her a pair of Red Shoes. The cursed shoes dance beautifully, but endlessly. The singer is drawn irresistibly into the fey world beyond the mirror, where she must redeem three magic symbols from the mysterious woman in order to obtain release from the cursed shoes. Written by Karen Newcombe <kln@sirius.com>

some great visuals...
17 November 1998 | by DMacSee all my reviews

Some of the photography and such are very good in this, but Kate's lack of acting ability is apparent and startling in this -- much more so than was evident in her earlier videos.
