Consensus: Inconsistency and listless plot make this K-horror remake a less-than-frightening time at the movies.

This is without question the dumbest horror movie of recent years. There is simply no way to piece together its fractured shards.

Audiences won't be crazy about what they see in these Mirrors.

Scott Weinberg

One of the better films of the infamous J-horror remake onslaught. Relatively speaking.
