Critic Reviews for Mirrors

All Critics (87) | Top Critics (13)

One of the better films of the infamous J-horror remake onslaught. Relatively speaking.

Full Review… | August 28, 2015

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

Brutal horror movie offers little to reflect on.

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...

Cinema Crazed

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).

Full Review… | December 17, 2009

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.

Audience Reviews for Mirrors


An ex-cop takes a security guard job at an old department store. He discovers haunted images in the mirrors.

Kiefer Sutherland just can't get out of the 24HR Role, what ever movie you see him in you see his role as the maniac with a gun who has a badge, That being said in this movie his acting was as bad as ever but the story line of this movie was very creepy, not many movies that deal with horror bother me but this one did, I haven't looked at my reflection since. About a hotel in NYC that burned and is now guarded by private security, the mirrors left over from an hospital are possessed, spine chilling worth 4 stars for story line.

It was fairly a decent movie but the ending made absolutely no sense at all.
