Wu Young-min, a former policeman who inadvertently brought
about the death of his partner during a face-off with a criminal,
has quit the police force and now heads up security at Dreampia
Department Store. Young-min comes across his former rival
and co-worker Ha Hyun-su, who now heads the investigation
into the recent murders at the Department store. A mysterious
woman Lee Ji-Hyun is also found lingering around the crime
scenes. Without wishing it, Wu is drawn further into the deep
mystery surrounding the murders...
in the wake of films such as Ring,
and Tale of Two Sisters, Into the Mirror takes
horror in yet another direction by proving that our inner
most fears revolve around the self.
the ghosts who startle you, those that appear mysteriously
behind you, those that go bump in the night, what about those
you have always known are there?
me for sounding negative, but there seems to have been a glut
of Asian horror films since since they started to become more
popular in the west. And the flow is showing no sign of stopping.
Its quite a shame in a way, this is quite a good film - well
made and well cast and acted.
saving grace for this reviewer was the fact that it concentrates
more on the police investigation rather than the supernatural
aspects of the case. This is no bad thing and gives the film
a slight edge over other types in its genre. You really do
feel like your getting into the investigation as the film
goes on and you can connect quite well with the principal
I did feel like this film was more of an experiment on how
to mix the two genres and be successful. This is definitely
a film for you and your partner to get lost in. Not especially
violent and not overly-complicated so even the men can understand.
Grab yourself some calorie-ridden popcorn and some hideously
overpriced ice-cream and sit down to watch, It's a lot better
than the sum of its parts.
extra's are quite good on this 2-disc set. There are six behind
the scenes documentaries, a trailer and some deleted scenes,
which make this a good little package.
