...often far more entertaining than it has any right to be.

I love a good horror movie, and this offered something different from slasher remakes and zombie flicks.

An unexpected twist elevates this well constructed supernatural thriller whose chilling concepts and vivid imagery make it a scary experience.

Some credit for this stylish screamer goes to Sutherland, forming his doughy-handsome features into an emotional punchbag. More credit goes to Nemec, sowing a harvest of dark invention in the vast spaces.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

The ground zero for ghosts here is a burned-out luxury New York department store, making this yet another thriller with post-9/11 associations.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

If you found Aja's previous films repellent, vile and stupid, this may make you rethink your probable decision to dismiss him as Eli Roth with a French accent.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Aja's way with gristle and grue makes for a number of arresting images, and the second half, in which the secret of the mirrors is gradually revealed, is actually stronger than the first.

Alexandre Aja proves once again that he is the best horror movie maker working today.

The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

The combination of Sutherland's beyond-the-call gravitas, director Alexandre (High Tension) Aja's demento visual sense, and a spookily lyrical ending earns it at least a short-term stay in the Halls of Yick.

If you're looking for another The Sixth Sense, The Devil's Backbone, or The Others, then Mirrors will definitely disappoint; however, if you just want to see some wild, wicked witchery and trippy trickery, you will get your money's worth.

It's not much of a compliment to call Mirrors "considerably better than Shutter, Pulse, or One Missed Call," but the flick is just good enough to make one wish it had shown up before those turkeys.

It skirts along the edge of greatness, but for every one thing it does right, it does another so inconceivably wrong.

Even the most forgiving fans of supernatural horror will balk at Mirrors' cookie-cutter characterizations, predictable shocks, and ridiculous, punishing plot.

Kudos to you if you can figure out what in god's name that ending is supposed to indicate, because I'm lost at this time...

Sutherland's natural stoicism does make the more risible developments and dialogue a bit easier to stomach (a moment when he goes all Jack Bauer on a nun comes to mind).

Alexandre Aja must have thought that just because he's basing a film around mirrors acting irrationally, he can proceed to remove logic from all aspects of the film.

Screenwize

Clunky dialogue sets up the film, unlikely backstory drives it along, and it all concludes in a ludicrous cataclysm of cinematic hyperbole.

As Joe Bob Briggs used to say: "too much plot gets in the way of the story."
