There is a long-held belief that mirrors act as a gateway to another dimension that some believe plays host to a world filled with evil spirits. Mirrors give the illusion of spaciousness, suggesting another "world" which exist on the other side of the glass, and the evils within the reflecting glass has often been utilized by writers to create creepy tales of hauntings and possession. Mike Flanagan's OCULUS (which hits theaters on April 11) is one such film that revolves around a haunted antique mirror. But there is another film coming our way that features a haunted mirror, and this one is inspired by a supposedly real haunted mirror that was picked up by the media last year.
Screen Daily is reporting that Carey Fitzgerald’s sales outfit Hight Point has picked up UK found-footage horror THE MIRROR ahead of the EFM.
Last year The Daily Mail and Huffington Post were among media outlets to report on a ‘haunted’ mirror that according to its owners left them dogged by bad luck, financial misery, strange sightings and illness. Picking up where the media story ended, THE MIRROR focuses on...
...three intrepid flatmates who purchase the supposedly haunted antique on ebay and set up round the clock cameras in the hopes of capturing evidence of something going bump in the night.
The completed feature is directed by Ed Boase (BLOODED) and stars I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE 2 actress Jemma Dallender alongside Joshua Dickinson and Nate Fallows.
No word yet as to when the film may see a release but we'll be keeping an eye on this one...and on our mirrors!
