Review 2014 by RD Clark
Written by: Mike Flanagan, Jeff Howard
Directed by: Mike Flanagan
Starring: Karen Gillan, Brenton Thwaites, Annalise Basso, Garrett Ryan, Rory Cochrane, Katee Sackhoff
Running time: 105 mins
A brother and sister attempt to prove that a mirror with supernatural powers is responsible for the deaths of their parents.
This is a really unique idea. It is well acted, has nice tense buildup of tension and suspense; the kids were particularly engaging. I was having a lot of fun.
And then the last ten minutes happened, turning this into just another gore-fest with a terrible ending. Seriously, everyone in the audience groaned and I heard a lot of, “What the –?” of various sorts as I was leaving. I really detest movies that cannot find an ending, so they tack on something so predictable and cliché.
I cannot recommend this. Go see something else.
