(USA/Germany, 2008, 109 minutes)
A suspended detective takes a job as night security guard in a fire-ravaged department store, and begins to sense a mysterious, evil presence in the mirrors in the building. Smart haunted house thriller whose precise, atmospheric handling and intense lead helps make up for a clever script that sags precisely when it shouldn't.
