When I saw the DVD with the title THE MIRROR, being a good horror movie fan it instantly reminded me the Asian hit 'Into the Mirror'. At first I thought it possibly the below average Aja's remake with a different cover. But after reading the synopsis in the back cover then it become clear to me "Nope, it's with different freaky Mirror shows." The story follows Alvaro & Sonia, a young married couple in crisis, have just moved into a new city. Alvaro managed a new job but Sonia apparently left everything to follow him. One day she buys a mirror that used to hang in an old hotel in the city. Eventually she finds the mirror not limited to show her reflection, and then she can see the heinous murder of a woman from the mirror! Sonia then trying start to discover the truth whether what she saw was real or not. After that, Sonia's life is to convert into a very common nightmare in compare to any similar horror films. As a Spanish horror film I was expecting more from it than it delivered. The cast was good. All the actors were more or less competent with their roles but the unsatisfactory part comes from the main area...Story; very much mediocre with a so-so ending.
