Alexandre Aja’s laughable reworking of the 2003 Korean film ‘Into the Mirror’ shatters the illusion that the French director of ‘Switchblade Romance’ and the remake of ‘The Hills Have Eyes’ may be a major new talent. The only thing less believable than the ridiculous plot is the over-acting of moonlighting ‘24’ star Kiefer Sutherland.

On the plus side, the fire-ravaged department store where Sutherland’s alcoholic ex-cop now works as a security guard is impressively creepy. Alone at night with its scorched mannequins, he sees stuff reflected in its mirrors that he cannot believe. And neither can we. Then the evil spirits trapped behind the glass somehow escape and attack his estranged wife and children in their home. But not before he’s tracked down a once-possessed nun, who tells him about the asylum that pre-dated the store where disturbed patients were subjected to an experimental, mirror-based shock treatment. This is without question the dumbest horror movie of recent years. There is simply no way to piece together its fractured shards.
