Quotations from Mirrors

Mirrors is a horror mystery-thriller film about an evil force that lives in mirrors at a department store that was gutted out by a fire. The story follows the lives of the security guard of the store and his family. Directed by Alexandre Aja. Starring Kiefer Sutherland, Paula Patton, and Amy Smart.

Mirrors was originally meant to be a complete remake of the Korean film "Geoul sokeuro", but after Aja took over as director and producer, he wanted to change the story, only to keep certain concepts true to the original. Read some quotes from Mirrors below.


Ben Carson: What if the mirrors can actually make us do things we don't want to do?
Michael Carson: Don't be scared mommy. We just [Mirror self at the same time] wanna come play with us.
Ben Carson: You gotta be careful of the water, it creates reflections!
Anna Esseker: The mirrors are merely windows on our world. It is not the wish of the mirrors to find me, but of what is imprisoned inside them.
Ben Carson: What is imprisoned inside them?
Anna Esseker: At the time that I was at St. Matthew's, Dr. Cane's therapy for personality disorders consisted of locking the patient up in a mirrored room for several days on end, forcing them to confront their own image. Dr. Cane was wrong about his theory. There is no cure for schizophrenia, Mr. Carson. It was something else, and whatever it was, it left me and entered the mirrors. Since that day, it has been collecting the souls of the people it kills. I'm sorry, but if I agree to go with you and return back to that place, I will make it possible for the demon to cross the threshold back into the real world.
Dr. Morris: When one starts to perceive one's own reflection as a completely separate being, one is suddenly confronted with two entirely separate egos, two entirely separate worlds that can strip us at any given moment. Feeling of self-hatred, usually triggered by a psychological shock, can split the personality in two, hence creating two or more personalities with distinct memories with distinct behavior patterns within the same individual. The patient then has the false perception of the existence of two distinct worlds. The real world, and the world inside a mirror.
Ben Carson: I know who did this.
Amy Carson: Well in that case, you've gotta tell Larry everything.
Ben Carson: He'll never believe me. Neither will you.
Amy Carson: So what? It's probably the angle from which the photograph was taken. What are you trying to prove?
Ben Carson: What if the mirrors are showing us something that's not really happening?
Amy Carson: What are you talking about?
Ben Carson: They're everywhere.
Angela Carson: What are you talking about?
Ben Carson: The fucking mirrors! They are everywhere. In the department store, on the corner of every street, in the window of every building in the city. I feel...I feel like I'm not the one looking into the mirrors, but they're looking back at me.
Ben Carson: What? You don't think people can change?
Amy Carson: We're not talking about people. We're talking about *you*.
Ben Carson: Amy, I killed a man. You don't just get over that. I needed time. I needed you.
