Ben Carson has seen better days. It's been nearly a year since the volatile detective was suspended from the NYPD for fatally shooting another undercover officer, an accident that not only cost him his job, but fueled the alcoholism and anger that has alienated his wife and kids and left him crashing on his sister's couch in Queens. Desperate to pull his life together and reconnect with his family, Carson takes a job as a night watchman at the burned-out ruins of the Mayflower department store.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This is without question the dumbest horror movie of recent years. There is simply no way to piece together its fractured shards."
‑ Nigel Floyd, Time Out
"An empty enterprise that provides a few moments of goofy fun, Mirrors reflects back nothing."
‑ Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
"Even the most forgiving fans of supernatural horror will balk at Mirrors' cookie-cutter characterizations, predictable shocks, and ridiculous, punishing plot."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"Sutherland's natural stoicism does make the more risible developments and dialogue a bit easier to stomach (a moment when he goes all Jack Bauer on a nun comes to mind)."
‑ William Goss, Cinematical
"As Joe Bob Briggs used to say: "too much plot gets in the way of the story.""
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"The director, Alexandre Aja, knows how to reflect the fear in people's heads, but he gets too ensnared in a backstory that's just gothic business as usual."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"Mirrors is too lugubrious and misconceived to reflect the talent of those involved."
‑ Jason Anderson, Globe and Mail
"Brutal horror movie offers little to reflect on."
‑ James Rocchi, Common Sense Media
"Alexandre Aja must have thought that just because he's basing a film around mirrors acting irrationally, he can proceed to remove logic from all aspects of the film."
‑ Anders Wotzke, Moviedex
"...often far more entertaining than it has any right to be."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"How could horror be so dull?"
‑ Bruce Demara, Toronto Star
"A minor chiller and major downer from the talented Alexandre Aja."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"Kudos to you if you can figure out what in god's name that ending is supposed to indicate, because I'm lost at this time..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Clunky dialogue sets up the film, unlikely backstory drives it along, and it all concludes in a ludicrous cataclysm of cinematic hyperbole."
‑ Simon Weaving, Screenwize
"I love a good horror movie, and this offered something different from slasher remakes and zombie flicks."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
