Another trip to the local AMC turns into another huge mistake to see the horror movie, Mirrors. The AMC theater has done nothing but annoy us from the beginning. It’s a huge tease. Wonderful looking building, 24 screens, lots of concessions, great seats, great audio but then reality sets in. The costs are outrageous and it attracts a high percentage of inconsiderate idiots. Every show there has about a 50% chance of being ruined by something.
Anyway, this one was no exception. A horror movie needs the right atmosphere and having kids laughing hysterically at plot points that aren’t funny and being loud doesn’t help.
So the synopsis on this one says, “An ex-cop (Kiefer Sutherland) becomes a night security guard at a long-closed department store that was ravaged by fire. He discovers that the store’s mirrors harbor a horrific secret that threatens him and his family.”
It was interesting for about 15 minutes and then you realize there is no story. It’s just a series of poorly strung together elements to get you to the next ridiculous horror moment. Nothing in this movie makes any sense at all and the scariest moments all have to do with non-scary things like birds flying off at the “wrong” moment.
Yet another film that will vie for the worst of the year.
