Review When it comes to horror films, there's one basic principal to consider: consistency means everything. A movie can deviate as much as the filmmakers like from the laws of the real world as long as they establish and adhere to an alternate set of rules. Movies like Mirrors fail utterly in part because the rules are arbitrary, unclear, and seem to change depending on what the director wants to achieve in any given scene. As a result, the narrative rarely makes sense, seems contrived beyond a level for which the "willing suspension of disbelief" can apply, and is impossible to buy into...Mirrors is yet another adaption of an Asian horror film, making one wonder if this seemingly endless trickle of depressingly mediocre fare will ever dry up. Mirrors shares many traits with its predecessors: an infatuation with the horrific aspect of some mundane item (phones, video tapes, static, photographs, mirrors, etc.) flat characters, confounding storylines, and a general disregard for anything that could remotely be considered intelligent. Some American adaptations of Asian horror films have achieved a certain degree of creepiness, but there's not much of that in Mirrors. The gore is so badly done that it's borderline comical and poor lighting passes for "atmosphere"...Admittedly, there haven't been many effective examples of translated Asian horror, but Mirrors exemplifies the worst characteristics of these movies. The only thing the viewer is left to reflect upon is how embarrassing the genre has become.

Review Writer/director Alexandre Aja and co-writer Gregory Levasseur had been cruising along, showing promise within the horror genre until (cue overwrought score) the mirrors got hold of them. Their film Mirrors is another remake of an Asian horror movie imbuing everyday objects with ghostly menace. In this case, the objects are, yes, mirrors, specifically (but not limited to) the mirrors in a run-down New York department store. Of course, jump-scares involving sudden appearances in mirrors have been a cheap horror tactic for years, so this is a little like making a horror movie about murderous loud noises...Apart from a bit of creepy imagery, Mirrors is tedious and an odd choice for a director whose movies, good or bad, tend to set their sights far over the top. Stripped of much of his usual energy and viscera, Aja (The Hills Have Eyes, High Tension) doesn't appear to have much facility for character-driven suspense. He simply punctuates the slow-creep-plus-jump-scare formula with a handful of his trademark grotesqueries...This places the movie in a strange realm between turgid PG-13 horror and excessive R-rated gorehounding, where the former shakes itself awake with a little of the latter. It's actually rated R but, unlike Aja's previous films, it doesn't seem fully committed. Or maybe it's like an evil reflection of itself in a haunted mirror that causes the original movie to cut itself up. If that sounds even remotely spooky, Mirrors still probably won't do much for you.
