Shy teenager Megan moves to a new town with her widowed mother and quickly becomes the most unpopular girl in high school. But when she starts to communicate with a mysterious mirror, her tormentors begin to meet with a horrifying series of ‘accidents’. Is the mirror a reflection of Megan’s own inner demons… or has she unwittingly opened the doorway of the damned?

I didn’t see Mirror, Mirror upon its original release, but if nothing else it proves that not all movies that came out in the early ’90s is bad. Here we have a haunted mirror. We see from the jump that this mirror makes people do very bad and evil things. We go forward to the current time and people are moving into this house and that darn mirror is still there and it isn’t long before it takes a grip on the teenage girl living there now, who is an outcast so it’s not too hard to influence her. At the start, it starts granting wishes but the wishes and the outcome get eviler and pretty soon she is overcome with power and trying to hurt even the people that were nice to her when this whole shebang started! It really is a good story being told and I found it to all be pretty darn interesting.

The effects is something here that I think a lot of you will appreciate. Humans and animals are killed here and often times it is done in a way that gives us a pretty nice effect with it. I feel there might be a slight Nightmare on Elm Street influence here even if we lack the charismatic killer and just have an evil mirror and whoever it can get to do its bidding all the while corrupting theirs. You still can feel that vibe, especially with some of the nightmarish visuals that happen and hallucinations some characters see from time to time. It might have been a little downhill from here with the Mirror, Mirror series but this one is very solid and looks really good from Dark Force Entertainment. If you haven’t seen this one, then you really should give it a watch.
