Tim wants to move on with his life after being released from protective custody but Kaylie is still haunted by what happened and is convinced that their parents death were caused by a supernatural force unleashed through an antique mirror, a Lasser Glass in their childhood home.
Kaylie is determined and went out her way to prove the innocence of Tim and tracks down the Lasser Glass mirror and learns of the similar deaths that have befallen previous owners over the past century. Tim and Kaylie’s hold on reality is shattered by terrifying hallucinations and realize that their childhood nightmare is beginning again. They are not sure if what is happening is real or memory.
The first half of the movie re-tells the childhood events of Tim and Kaylie through flashbacks; these flashbacks bleed into their present lives until they are not sure whether what is happening is reality, imagination or part of their memory.
The story is not told straight forward, it will make you think, re-think and sometimes freaks and scares you a little bit. You will wonder whether what is happening is a fake or reality and the ending is definitely one of the best and original ending.
The story and the way it is told is really great and each of the main character is fully developed. The movie takes a simple story of a haunted mirror, tells the story is a flashback manner, makes you think about the story and makes you jump a little bit.
It stars Karen Gillan as Kaylie and Brenton Thwaites as Tim; directed and written by Mike Flanagan.
