"This week we discuss Kiefer Sutherland in Mirrors, the film that decided that the most scary part of any horror movie is that part where something unexpected is seen in a mirror, and said 'Let's just make a whole movie of that!'"

Official Show Notes[]

"We watch Kiefer Sutherland in Mirrors. We mean the movie—we didn't break into his bathroom or anything. Meanwhile, Elliott pitches a crypt keeper movie, Dan inadvertently casts Dean Martin in his greatest role ever, and Stuart has a little problem comprehending the film's ending."

Movie Summary[]

Ideal for those situations in which "you want to see a movie where a nun vaporizes in a cloud of blood." @14:00


An ex-cop and his family are the target of an evil force that is using mirrors as a gateway into their home.


In a bid to pull his shattered life back together, troubled ex-cop Ben Carson takes a job as a security guard at the burned out ruins of a once-prosperous department store. As Ben patrols the charred hallways, he begins to see horrifying images in the ornate mirrors that still adorn the walls. Ben soon realizes that a malevolent force is using the mirrors to gain entrance into this world, threatening the lives of his wife and children.
