Photographer Debbie (Lisa Vidal) moves into a new house with her husband Jim (David Chisum) and son Ian (Joshua Pelegrin), a house that seems perfect at first - but then she thinks she's stalked by a hooded guy and starts to believe the house is haunted by its former owner. Murders occur in the neighbourhood, and all victims are people she has just photographed. Helped by her mother, Debbie desperately tries to find out what's going on and how it relates to the ghost world - and she soon blames the former owner of the house to be the hooded killer. The more she investigates though, the more she gets freaked out, and it all culminates in her shooting her hubby in the leg, confusing him for a ghost. When she finds out, she faints, and when she wakes up, her husband has tied her to a chair and tells her everything supernatural that has been happening has only happened in her mind, and that she herself has actually been the killer she has been looking for, suffering from some sort of schizophrenia. Naturally, she doesn't believe him, until he tells her her mother has died five years ago - which she actually remembers.

Jim decides to keep Debbie tied up over night and sleep on it to decide what to do with her in the morning - not a good idea, since in the night, Debbie, thinking of herself as the former owner of the house, manages to free herself and stab him. It's only when she sees herself in the mirror trying to stab her son Ian too that she realizes what's going on, and instead of him she stabs herself ...


If my synopsis above doesn't make a lot of sense, I'm not in the least surprised, because the film doesn't make too much sense either - yet that's not to say Dark Mirror is a bad film as such, as a mystery it's actually pretty interesting, manages to keep the suspense up througout and keeps one guessing until the very end. That said though, the film isn't a perfect piece of mystery/suspense cinema either, its plot might feature quite a few surprises, but as a whole it lacks originality and its direction might be dynamic and effective but lacks true vision - but it's still good genre entertainment as it is.
