The previous trailers to Alexandre Aja’s upcoming Mirrors had left me relatively disinterested and slightly confused. This new red band trailer, however, shows a lot of promise and raised my excitement level considerably.
In this version of the trailer, we get to see the actual haunted department store that Kiefer’s troubled ex-cop will provide security for, as well as some of the creepy goings on that infest the area. The premise of the film, if you haven’t picked up on it yet, revolves around strange and terrifying things happening in mirrors that torment Sutherland and those close to him.
We get a few nice glimpses of some of the blood and gore we’ll be exposed to, including an awesome scene in which Amy Smart apparently rips her own jaw off. NICE. We get to see more blood splattering and a slit throat, as well as some spooky disfigured bodies and a half dozen or more creepy reflections.
All in all I think this movie has what it takes to deliver the scares. Aja has shown himself to be more than capable behind the lens and the mood so far looks nice and scary. Add in badboy Sutherland, a few hotties, a decent amount of violence and the requisite spooks, scares, and creepy atmosphere (which are all apparent in the trailer) and we’ve got ourselves a winner. Consider me in line already.
