Mirrors 2 Bd & Dvd [Blu-ray]

What Other Items Do Customers Buy After Viewing This Item?
While not a direct follow-up to the 2008 shocker Mirrors, Mirrors 2 does indeed boast its share of evil, murderous mirrors. The kind that, when you stare into them, show you an image of yourself doing bloody deeds like chewing broken glass or committing a ritual disemboweling. Not pleasant, especially when the damage manifests itself for real. Said mirrors also add to the misery of an already wretched security guard, Max (Nick Stahl), who finds himself cursed with the ability to foresee these deadly encounters, which happen to his fellow employees at a new department store complex. Max is already having a tough time because his memories of a fatal car accident are a constant nightmare; that might explain why he looks so awful, and why the best he can do is a security guard job when his father (William Katt) actually owns the whole new development. Horror fans will not find much beyond this setup, as Max occasionally visits his shrink and sort of becomes a suspect in the rash of killings. The cast includes Christy Carlson Romano as an early victim and Emmanuelle Vaugier as the sister of a missing woman, but most of the movie is spent waiting around for the grotesque attacks--which do nothing to disrupt the overall tedium that prevails. --Robert Horton --This text refers to the DVD edition.

The bonus here is a second movie (standard version) "Into The Mirror", the Korean original from which the first "Mirror" was made. I normally preferred the original Japanese or Korean versions, usually more creepy and gory, like Ringu (for The Ring) and the Grudge. But I was disappointed with the Korean's original version "Into The Mirror". The male actor was a popular actor in Korea, but the story was not scary, more like a detective story. (2.5/5)
Audio: The DTS-HD Master Audio was adequate with lots of work-out for the subwoofers. Dialogue was clear. (3.5/5)
Mirrors 2 (Unrated) was not a bad scary horror movie, even though it was a low-budget direct-to-video one. There were many violent and bloody scenes, with nudity...definitely for adults only. I did learn something from this movie..."Spectrophobia" for fear of mirrors. If you like to be scared, give this movie a try. Recommended.

Nick Stahl is good as the leading man, a young security guard who has experienced a tragic car accident. The accident kills his fiancee, but he is brought back to life by paramedics. His wealthy father (William Katt) gives him a security job at the Mayflower, a large building that he owns, hoping that he can get back on his feet and put the tragedy behind him. Once he begins working, however, he begins to have visions of a ghost girl in the mirrors of the building's basement, and with the help of the girl's sister (Emmanuel Vaugier), they search for clues as to what happened to her.
The film pulls no punches; it is exactly what you would expect, which is a combination of "Stir Of Echoes" and the first "Mirrors." The film is graphic at times, but does not rack up a huge body count. Christy Romano, the girl from Kim Possible, appears in the film also, and she is....shall we say...all grown up now. All in all, a formulaic but entertaining film, and something about it just draws you in. I found myself engaged until the film's ending. 3.5 stars.
I'll give the movie three stars because of Nick Stahl.
I really liked him in T3 and it's kind of sad to see him wasting his time on movies like this.
I sort of enjoyed the first Mirrors.
So I was curious what they would do with this one.
Well...the FX are decent.
Nick is good.
There are a few decent scares in the beginning.
The music is done well.
The first Mirrors was good but was it good enough to warrant a sequel?
I'll have to say no.
The gore was phony and total over kill.
The senseless nudity which sorry adds nothing to the film.
The story line dissolved into complete rubbish by the end of the movie.
It was watchable but I can see why it didn't make it to theaters.
I'll recommend a rental to anyone who loved the first one or people like me who can't help but watch a train wreck once in a while.
I hope the souls trapped in the mirrors have enough sense to do away with anyone who tries to make a third movie.
Also a puzzling plot hole. One of the potential victims apparently had nothing to do with the revenge plot---so why is the vengeful spirit after him?
Fans of the original may be disappointed but it's decent enough.
Find the victims killer or killers then they can rest in peace until then they will make a bloody mess of anyone involved. The gore was really good and very well done,the shower scene alone was worth the watch.
I love Nick Stahl ,he was convincing in this role given it wasn't the most concrete.
The story was simple but that's ok ,sometimes you don't want to think just watch.
Moral of the story ,never slip a potential Ghost a rufie.
I give it 2 thumbs up.
