I liked the story although its been done to death. I think it was well played.. bit of over acting by the Occultist .. and I loved the idea of the mirror. They are fascinating in themselves. Not a bad one. Not that great either.

Doesn't rely on gore at all, the horror is more in the storytelling and subtle visuals, I liked it a lot

Absolutely great British film for the intelligent film watcher. I noticed its had some bad reviews which I think mostly came from people who - a/ don't understand or appreciate the visual surrealism or subtley of some British film makers and b/ were instead looking for obvious gore or explosions that most American films have. Amazing performance from British classic Downton abbeys Jessica Brown Findley.
