Goofs

After Deborah takes a picture directly into the bathroom mirror, then falls backwards into the tub, she looks at the resulting shot and it shows her in mid-fall with the camera clearly pointed at the ceiling. Even if the mirror has magical or mystic powers, the digital camera would have reproduced the image presented to the lens, not the point of view of the mirror. See more »

Very scary and inventive psychological thriller.
10 November 2009 | by sarah-578-468152See all my reviews

I really enjoyed Dark Mirror. It's not your typical scary movie, but that's what makes it so good. The story grips you right from the beginning and never allows you to catch your breath. The plot revolves around a photographer who, after moving into the perfect (and yet, creepy) old house, discovers that there are secrets hidden in the house's glass windows and mirrors that only her camera can reveal. The film moves at such a rapid pace and the suspense never lets up, so much so that I didn't foresee the very clever plot twist at the end of the film coming. A couple of the actors turn in campy performances, but given the spooky, off-putting world into which this film immediately transports us, they didn't bother me or seem to be out of place. Lisa Vidal shines in the lead role of Deborah, and director Pablo Proenza should be very proud of his work in steering this highly inventive film to its final, disturbing conclusion. I recommend this film not only because it's different than anything that I've seen recently, but it's very effective at scaring its audience. Just don't watch this one alone!
