The first trailer for Alexandre Aja’s flick Mirrors is online and it features absolutely nothing original and very few things of interest.  Ouch.  The short little trailer, one step above teaser, one step below engaging, seemingly has little to do with the plot of the film.  As we’ve reported in the past, Kiefer plays a troubled cop turned security guard of a department store who investigates the strange goings on that revolve around mirrors that bring out the worst in people.  In the trailer, we see Kiefer with his family witnessing strange events, presumably in their own home.  These events have been lifted from just about every Japanese horror film to come out in the past 6 years.  We’ve got creepy mirror images, flashes of disturbing things, delayed reactions in reflections, water everywhere, and a kid somehow in tune with it.

I’m being very harsh here, but out of love. Alexandre Aja, I feel, is one of the “new breed” of horror directors that can actually live up to the expectations saddled on him.  Sutherland I have always been a fan of, long before “24” was a top tier show.  This trailer is short and really seems to lack anything original.  Maybe they’re keeping some big surprises in store for us.  Maybe not.

Either way, I’ll be keeping tabs on this film because I’ve got secretly high hopes for it and I’ll let you good people know when (if) it turns interesting. Check out the trailer below:
