A cursed compact gives any female wielder the power to make a man fall wildly in love with her - but she has to subsequently kill him. The compact falls into the hands of a scorned high school girl, who uses it to get a date to the prom and kill the boys who have teased her.Written by
Vanity's Mirror tops off Friday the 13th: The Series' best episodes, a shining example of the simplicity of storytelling. In this ep, a small hand-held mirror causes madness on the campus of a high school, as the plain, bookish girl that everyone ignored finds a seductive power in its magical spell.
The acting from series regulars is great, and the supporting cast is top-notch. Special props go to Zack Ward (Farkus of "A Christmas Story" fame) as a heartless jock who finds himself magically obsessed with the episode's central antagonist.
As soon as this series gets it long-overdue DVD release, skip ahead to enjoy these great 46 minutes of television frights. Vanity's Mirror is class-act television horror.
