It has been a hectic past week and therefore, not a lot of blog activity... sorry about that! A few nights ago, Tina and I watched Mirrors. I had been wanting to see this movie for quite some time and really had high expectations for it. For one time, Kiefer Sutherland played the lead and he is one intense actor. He really brings so much to a movie with his commitment to the character. I had a "long wait" for this movie on my Netflix Q and decided to get it from The Red Box at out local Hannaford Supermarket. The movie starts off with a former security guard who is the night watchman at an abandoned burned out, huge department store in New York City. He's running in fear trying to "escape" the building, but the mirrors (which are many) won't allow it. This movie is intense, somewhat graphic, and very creepy. We watched the unrated version on the DVD instead of the theatrical version. Usually there is more content in the unrated version and it tends to be more graphic. Sutherland plays an ex-cop who is separated from his wife because of issues dealing with him taking the life of someone when he was a cop. He's unable to deal with that and therefore hits the bottle. He's basically kicked off the police force and ends up as the overnight security guard at the before mentioned burned out department store. Strange visions or reflections began to appear to him in the many mirrors in the store. This happens early and begins an intense search for Sutherland to find out what it all means. As I said before, Sutherland is awesome in this movie. He is one of the finest American actors today. His intensity through his career is well documented and he is almost a master of his craft. He is one of my favorite actors. In so many of his movies he plays a bad guy, but in this one we really pull for him to find the truth. This is a great horror movie for it's acting, storyline, direction, and editing. You really need to see it! Check out the trailer below!

This creepy supernatural thriller from director Alexandre Aja stars Kiefer Sutherland as troubled security guard Ben Carson, who discovers malevolent spirits living within the mirrors of a fire-ravaged department store.
