Trivia

Goofs

When Matt returns to his flat after having been sprayed by the young lady on the street, he no doubt would have been carrying a strong odor of the aerosol weapon that the lady used. Particularly if it was pepper spray or OC. The odor would have been very noticeable in his bedroom and quite probably in the rest of the flat. I would also believe, too, having used OC many times myself, that Jemma would have been subject to minor irritation from the residue on Matt while she was retrieving her charging cord. It's reasonable to assume Jemma and Steve would have guessed that something very wrong had happened to Matt. See more »

The Mirror: A Surprising Reflection
3 June 2015 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

When I came across The Mirror everything I saw and read about it was the epitome of hatred and dislike. Everybody slated the film left right and centre and this peeked my curiosity. I gave it a chance and found it immediately was fighting an uphill battle as it is in fact a found footage film. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with found footage films, my problem is that there are just so damn many lately........and most of them are terrible.The whole style of movie has enabled film makers with no money or experience to make a movie and it immediately puts it in a bad light for me.I don't even like the "Critically Acclaimed" Paranormal Activity series! Anyway within 5 minutes I was finding myself quite enamored with the film. Primarily because of the likable characters and the really quite good performances by the three young actors.

It quickly became apparent that this movie was not going to break any new ground and would be a fairly standard predictable affair but the actors made these 90 minutes and limited script quite enjoyable.

Now without giving anything away the movie does something quite unique. For the last 20 minutes I was finding myself almost wincing as I knew that something was coming, most likely a big jump scare. It kept me waiting in anticipation, it teased......and I liked it.

Comparing this to the likes of the Occulus is foolish, you cannot compare a mega budget Hollywood blockbuster to a low budget indie film on the same scale. Take each movie for what it is and this really entertained me. Don't compare, don't put emphasis on its budget or unknown actors, just turn out the light and give this a chance and you may be surprised.

If you want big budget, if you want big cgi and constant action then you won't enjoy this. If you want a well constructed, well acted and interestingly paced horror then give it a try.

You like me may be surprised.
