Bad and Boring Sequel..
I remember that I didn't like this movie at all when I first rented it back in the days. But than again, I didn't see the original "Mirror, Mirror" at that time because it could not be found in any videostore.
The original one is not a classic but certainly not a bad movie in it's genre. It is slow but the second half is certainly worth while. There was lots of suspense and some nice effects. So how about the sequel "Raven Dance: Mirror Mirror II" ? The composer and producer of the original is this time around also the director. So it's even more a mystery why Part II is just painful to watch. The story is uninspired, stupid and downright boring from the start. The death of the rock band in the beginning really sets the tone, it doesn't get any better than the awfully bad opening scene. Like the original, there are some familiar faces, Roddy McDowell and Mark Ruffalo. Offcourse, Ruffalo wasn't well known back than (In The Cut, 13 Going On 30). He still must be kicking himself for ever signing up for this garbage. He even appeared in "Mirror Mirror III: The Voyeur" : that was definitely a new low in the history of movie-making...
