    I sat down in my basement with a bowl of popcorn, the lights off, and this movie on apple Tv. I was bored out of my mind and honestly not expecting too much. 90 minutes later, the popcorn lay cold and untouched, and at some point I had turned the lights back on out of pure fear (can’t even remember when). I’ve never really liked found-footage horror movies in the past, but The Mirror has truly hit on the winning recipe. Rather than the artificial cheap scares and loud noises of the Paranormal Activity series or tons of other formulaic films, The Mirror uses a realism-based approach. Starting out in an almost boring fashion, it slowly ramps up the tension, going from slightly unsettling to deeply disturbing by the last few minutes. This might sound silly, but the feeling of dread creeping up my spine made me feel like I was in a dark room that was slowly filling up with ice-cold water, beginning at my feet and ending up at my mouth, so that I could hardly breathe! A must see…just don’t look at yourself in the mirror for the next few days;)

    Although at first the movie seemed to be following a familiar formula, it turned out to be a fresh take on my favorite genre. Likeable characters with good chemistry really drew me in and I enjoyed the use of multiple found-footage cameras. Entertaining and frightening- would definitely recommend if you like horror films.

    "The Mirror" is great for a late night with your friends. We watched it with the covers over our eyes mostly. Definitely one to watch if you like the thrill of being terrified and want a horror film that has a different take on the traditional form!
  • Worth a rent

    Not a single scare at all in this film. The film is so slow and is basically dialog between the three cast members.
