Mirrors, It’s Jaw-Ripping Fun!

Alexandre Aja's Mirrors (click to see the whole thing!)

This has to be the coolest picture I’ve ever had the honor of posting on Dread Central.

By clicking the image above, you’ll get a very graphic and detailed look at one of the gory deaths that awaits the characters in Alexandre Aja’s Mirrors. No one is safe from the spectres who haunt reflective surfaces as they wage a seemingly unstoppable war against the living. How do you beat ghosts who can harm you via your reflection? Kiefer Sutherland has his work cut out for him on August 15th!

Today we were also shown the friendlier Mirrors trailer for those who’d like to watch it at work or maybe even around your kids.

Mike Phalin

Since 1997, Michael Patrick Phalin has been a contributing writer to various websites including Dread Central, iMockery, Bloody Disgusting and KrytenSyxx. During the early 1980s, Phalin's love of the movie industry was fueled by the VHS tapes he found during his time spent at the video rental store his mother worked at. Rather than attending a daycare regularly, young Michael would form a tower of tapes with interesting cover art and go watch each one, the very first of these being the original 'A Nightmare on Elm Street.' From that point he was hooked on horror and the process behind creating special effects. In his twenties, Mike met Steve 'Uncle Creepy' Barton and was soon aiding the horror website Dread Central with film reviews. As the site grew in popularity, Phalin soon started writing news stories and conducting interviews on a daily basis. After a few years, he decided to take a break from writing to focus on other opportunities. After moving to a beach community with his wife Michelle, both were cast to appear in the final season of A&E's home improvement show 'Fix This Yard' in 2013. This event rekindled Mike's love of the entertainment industry. Between the time he spends being with his family, Michael continues to contribute to Dread Central both with writing and photography. In his mid-thirties, Phalin took up oil painting after being inspired by an episode of Bob Ross. Pieces of his artwork and photography can be found on his Tumblr and official website.

    Dude, that’s fucking gnarly. Yes, I’m breaking out the 80’s words to describe this disgusting sumbitch.

    Thank god for DC, because if I wasn’t turned on to the coolness of this movie, after seeing a commercial for it, I probably would have lumped it in with the rest of the j-horror Americanized ripoffs.

    It’s a cool shot and it was a cool sequence in the red band trailer but I kinda worry a bit about the fact that they’re so willing to publicize the death of one of the more recognizable actors…

    Aja’s second unit man has been a guy named Erik Wilson, he does so again in Mirrors. He was the cinematographer for the last two Pumpkinhead movies and I just loved his shot compositions and lighting. Just great work outta this guy. I have no idea how to spot second unit work from the primary though.

  • The Unknown Murderer

    I’m looking forward to this if only for the fact that Aja directed it.

    Yay gore!
