Mirrors is the 2008 cult horror hit from celebrated French genre filmmaker Alexandre Aja (High Tension, Piranha, The Hills Have Eyes). A burned-out former police detective named Ben Carlson (Kiefer Sutherland, The Lost Boys, Stand by Me, A Few Good Men, Dark City) tries his best to support his ex-wife (Paula Patton, D'j' vu, Precious, Hitch) and their two children (Cameron Boyce and Erica Gluck). He decides to take a night-shift job as a security guard at a burned-down department store. Ben discovers that the departed store mirrors are somehow alive and those mirrors could bring out the worse in people. Soon, the mirrors want Ben to find a person, who was possessed by these mirrors over fifty years ago. Now Ben is forced to find this mysterious person, while his family is in danger. Also starring Amy Smart (The Butterfly Effect, Varsity Blues, Crank, Road Trip) and Jason Flemyng (Brusier, Snatch, Deep Rising).

Metacritic Score

  • 50

    The New York Times Jeannette Catsoulis

    A minor chiller and major downer from the talented Alexandre Aja.

  • 40

    Los Angeles Times

    An empty enterprise that provides a few moments of goofy fun, Mirrors reflects back nothing.

  • 30

    Variety

    Softcore horror at best, failed allegory at worst, Mirrors reflects little beyond Splat Pack auteur Alexandre Aja's desire to push his genre into less punishing and more profitable...
