YesAsia Editorial Description

One year ago, a department store was site to a fire and a series of bizarre murders - throat cutting with a pizza cutter, skewering through a man's ear with a ball pen, and twisting one's wrist to death. Security manager Woo Young Min (Yoo Ji Tae), feeling guilty about the deaths of his colleagues, is determined to investigate the case and discover the truth. But never does Young Min suspect that the perpetrator is a woman, that woman.

Kim Sung Ho's 2001 directorial debut Into the Mirror stars Yoo Ji Tae (Ditto, One Fine Spring Day), Kim Myung Min, and Kim Hye Na. With its tight plot and astonishing ending, this suspense horror attracted much media attention at the 2001 Pusan International Film Festival.

This limited edition release comes with a scenario book, directory's commentary, production notes, deleted scenes and three award-winning short films directed by Kim Sung Ho.

Professional Review of "Into The Mirror Limited Edition"

March 11, 2008

This professional review refers to Into The Mirror (DVD) (DTS Version) (Hong Kong Version)
The success of the Japanese The Ring and Juon series seem to have rung the "thriller" bell for Korea once again. Having dealt with the ghosts at campus in Wishing Stars and having dined with some lost spirits in The Uninvited, now confront your deepest dark fear in Into the Mirror.

The business of Dreampia, a department store where a destructive fire occurred a year ago, is about to start again and so is the horror. A number of staff members are mysteriously killed in places with mirrors and the ways they die are sure to give you the creeps: one has his throat cut open by a pizza cutter, one has a pen stabbed deep from his ear to his brain and one has his waist twisted so extremely that he dies. It is actually not the first time that mirrors seem to have brought death to this department store. Woo Young-min (Yoo Ji-tae), the security manager of the store and a former detective, mistakenly took the life of his partner by shooting at a mirror in a hostage case. Already being punished by guilt, Young-min at one night shift makes a mysterious discovery …

A distorted version of "The Mirror Stage" appears to be the theme of this movie. "The Mirror Stage" was first proposed in 1936 by the French psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan (1901-1981). Lacan establishes that there is a mirror in everybody's mind and the mirror reflects our respective values. Creating a self-image in the mirror is therefore the first stage of self-understanding. Lacan's "The Mirror Stage" is said to be distorted in "In the Mirror" because the reflections of Young-min, the deceased and the suspect in the mirror are not the self-images they believe they have. Due to the past experience, their values have been distorted and that reflects on the image they see themselves. The horrible side of the world they can only see in the mirror thus gives "her", the culprit, chances to gain power in the dark side.

Kim Sung-ho the director makes a bold attempt in his debut work by making use of "The Mirror Stage" and some engrossing stories behind some famous paintings featuring people in the mirror. The investigation initiated by Young-min and the police in the movie is led smoothly by the idea of mirrors. While the terror starts due to the disequilibrium brought by mirror images, it ends by having the image of the culprit reflected in a mirror. One big selling point of this movie, which also makes the ending so intriguing, is that even though the images of the dead vanish from the mirror, their souls forever remain there. This movie makes such a great start in the director journey of Kim Sung-ho as he manages to utilize the mirror concept to generate a series of climatic events.

Despite the absorbing plot, the cast does not make a big impression. It seems that Yoo Ji-tae has not completely devoted himself to the film. Even though he has lots of opportunities to establish his leading actor position in the scene in which he finally realizes his real existence, he does not give his best and so cannot show the self-condemned misery his character has been through. Similar comments also apply to Kim Hye-na who plays the twin sisters Lee Ji-hyun and and Lee Jung-hyun. There should be a clearer distinction between the two roles as it is confusing enough to have one person playing a pair of twins.

Into the Mirror may not be like those classic horror movies but the fear brought by those mirrors in the film is thrilling enough. You can't help wondering who exactly the one you see in the mirror is. It is indeed the magic of Into the Mirror: Mirrors may tell your appearance but they can also tell your deepest darkest fears and desires. You therefore can't deceive a mirror, just like you can't deceive yourself.

??? Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
This film might catch your attention from start to finish but it's only because you have to concentrate to see what's going on. One of the twins misses her dead sister so much she hangs mirrors all round her room so she could look into them thinking her sister is there. I thought that was very clever. However the end is a little confusing and I don't quite know what to make of it.

alright Customer Review Rated Bad 4 - 4 out of 10
Out of all the many horror movies I've watched these many years, this one is just average...the storyline is quite confusing sometimes, but at the same time, it's decent. As for terms of horror, well, there isn't really anything to be scared about, the horror within this movie is very weak, to horror movie goers, this will probably be considered 'lame'...but to the people who never watch horror movies, then this would probably be scary enough for u.
My rating: 4/10
