Maria, a lonely 18-year-old high school student, opens up to her reflection because of the lack of support she has from family and her peers. She switches place with her supportive, but evil, twin that she discovers in the mirror's reflection, but the newfound freedom unleashes suppressed feelings.
When asked in an interview about filming the scene where India Eisley, playing his daughter, takes off all her clothes in front of him, Jason Isaacs said: "I liked playing scenes with India when she was (her character) Airam. Just because it's a father's worst nightmare that their daughter is suddenly aggressively sexual and confrontational. You're used to having a certain status and parental authority. It's shakey anyway in the real world, but in our grotesque movie world it's even shakier and I loved it because it was so unsettling." See more »

The first part is excellent; touching, creepy, interesting and really very chilling at times. A mix of believable characters and relationships, very well acted. The stage is set perfectly, but unfortunately in the second half the violence somehow undoes the tension already established. It's as if they couldn't resist the temptation to overdo it. Less would have been much more. Rather than build on the psychological and atmospheric creepiness, they throw it away with a rather unimaginative, predictable story arc, where the very dramatic actions feel over the top, and lack impact. A shame, as this really could have been excellent. Nonetheless, worth a watch.
