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 »

A Complete Mess with Fake Reviews
1 June 2010 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The housewife and aspirant photographer Deborah Martin (Lisa Vidal) fells a strange sort of attraction by a house and convinces her husband Jim (David Chisum) to buy it. They move from Seattle with their son Ian (Joshua Pelegrin) and Deborah takes a photo of a mirror in the bathroom. Along the days, she discovers that her neighbor is snooping her family and a stranger is stalking her. She researches and finds that the house belonged to a painter that might have killed his wife. Sooner she realizes that an alternate world is affecting her life and the glasses of the house are protecting her family.

The above summary sounds crazy, incoherent or inconsistent? So congratulations to me since I have succeeded in describing the complete mess that this story is. "Dark Mirror" is an awful horror movie despite a couple of good reviews in IMDb (but at least two visibly fake from Users with only one review and giving a ten to this crap). My vote is three.

Title (Brazil): "Reflexo do Mal" ("Reflex of the Evil")
