Inane, dull and about as scary as a drippy bottle of Windex, Mirrors is a rip-off of The Shining that substitutes a deserted department store for Shining's hotel and a strung-out Kiefer Sutherland for strung-out Jack Nicholson.
at some point Aja appears to have decided that he cannot be bothered with all this remake malarkey, and instead he just goes completely ape with his plotting...could well go on to become a cult classic.
Aja attempts to take a slow-burning ghost story and turn it into one of his over-the-top gorefests and loses the essence of the story in his endeavors... before wasting any money on this at theaters, you should probably reflect on it a bit...
With Aja slathering on the cheap boo scares, overseeing rancid performances, barely investing in his screenplay, and showing questionable gorehound taste in violent imagery, Mirrors eventually reflects absolute tedium.
