Not bad but kind of slow
30 September 2017 | by preppy-3See all my reviews

Gil and Margaret Thrasher (William Shatner, Joanna Heyes) buy this creepy old house from friend Adam Talmadge (Russell Johnson). However the house has no mirrors. It seems that their friend neglected to tell them about a number of deaths that happened in the house...and they all seem to be tied into mirrors. But it's just a superstition...or is it? It has a great opening on a dark and stormy night but quickly quiets down and starts to move at a snails pace. It's pretty obvious from the beginning what's happening so there's not much suspense. However the ending is impressive and its great seeing future TV stars Shatner, Johnson and Donna Douglas so early in their careers. A pretty good entry in the "Thriller" TV series.
