For my tastes, Mirrors
had a lot of good things going for it. Alexandre Aja has continually gotten better as a horror director in my eyes, culminating in one of the bloodiest kill scenes ever put on film in this movie. Add on top of that Kiefer “Jack Bauer” Sutherland as the film’s hero, and you’ve got a pretty promising flick. Of course, not everyone agrees with me
, but that’s the joy of film, isn’t it?
is headed for DVD and Blu-ray, with an announced January 13th release date. The release will include both the theatrical cut of the film, as well as an extended, unrated version. Even more intriguing is that the disc will include an alternate ending - particularly of interest to me because I found the movie’s non-traditional ending as one of it’s strengths. I’m curious to see what else had been considered.
