Ben Carson (performed by Kiefer Sutherland) has passed almost a year as a suspended detective of the Police Department of New York for having fatally shot to another cop who was working as an incognito. This terrible incident didn’t only cost the job of the detective; it also led him to the vice of alcoholism which has isolated him from his wife and his son. Now the detective lives with his sister on Queens.
Anxious for overcoming the depression and the negative circumstances to recover his family, Carson looks for a job and he decides to work as a night watchman at the burned ruins of the Mayflower stores. Once upon a time this gallery was a symbol of prosperity and opulence, but after the occurrence of a terrible burning, that place started to deteriorate in darkness, in a very similar way as it happens with a ghost sheep. Many innocent lives were lost on that fire.
While Carson monitors the horrifying rests of the Mayflower stores, he discovers that something sinister is hidden behind the mirrors that are placed on the walls of the corridors. On their huge crystal, horrible images are reflected which alter deeply to Carson. Besides of projecting terrible images of the past, they seem to manipulate the reality, Carson does not only see these terrible reflections on the mirrors of the gallery, but on the house of his sister, then he realizes that whatever that was living inside those sinister mirrors is chasing him and his family. The disorientated will begin a search for the origin of these strange phenomenons in order to protect his wife and kid, after his sister is killed by these strange creations.
Carson has necessarily to find out the true that is hidden behind those sinister mirrors and fight against that evil force which is even more powerful than anything he has seen before.
This movie has important captivating elements; it has an attention grabbing argument, and the suspense enclosed on the story keeps to the viewer pending from the beginning to the end of the movie of all the events that take place on it. Although some may have been disappointed (expecting maybe another movie with an empty argument and a lot of blood in the style of Saw), this movie has won a lot of followers among the people who likes to see paranormal events and the scary situations related to them on a movie. Some scenes of this movie can be classified on the B category of terror, especially the scenes of the last part of the movie. Kiefer Sutherland makes an outstanding performance on this amazing horror movie.
