    I saw it a few days ago and was quite impressed. Rather than relying on jump scares or torture porn, this is psychological horror ****** finest. Throughout the film the characters must try to reason around the hallucinations the mirror creates for them.

    This was the worst horror movie ever!! Don't waste your money because there is no true plot. Like what's the purpose? The movie leaves you with so many questions because there is no ending. Don't waste your money. The audience in the Loews theatre NJ threw popcorn, soda and whatever they could find.
