Both are UK releases, so check your hardware before you order. More details, trailers and some stills below.
The infamous Odenbrook Sanitarium closed after a mass suicide occurred within its walls. Sixty years later, six college students armed with cameras and recording equipment venture into the asylum to prove the existence of the paranormal. Thrills turn into nightmares as members of the group go missing without a sound, cell phones mysteriously vanish, corridors turn into mazes, walls appear where doors once stood, flashlights fail and something or someone begins toying with the group. Days later, when five of the six friends turn up missing, the lone survivor must go through the recovered footage in order to clear his name and find out what happened to his friends.
Dark Mirror defies the conventions of the traditional haunted house ghost story by revealing its horrors in the full glare of a stream of sunshine or a camera flash rather than the night-time darkness of a spooky cellar. Lisa Vidal (E.R.) stars as Debbie, a woman who is haunted by a hidden presence or perhaps the inner-workings of her increasingly unstable mind.
With a slow, quiet build-up Dark Mirror is a nicely ambiguous and compelling ghost story full of twists and turns.
