That old horror cliché, the evil spirit in the mirror...
After she is smacked about by her abusive boyfriend Bobby (John Reno), boyish 'plain Jane' Sara (Julie Merrill) goes to stay with her older movie-actress sister April (Janet Graham) and her partner Richard (Richard Fast). While recuperating, Sara finds a Haitian book of magic and performs some of the rituals, unwittingly unleashing the evil spirit of Egyptian empress Sura, who possesses the young woman, transforming her into a sexy man-killer.
Mirror of Death's trashy premise gives plenty of scope for gratuitous splatter and nudity, yet fails to deliver either (deaths are gore-free and a shower sex scene is coy, to say the least), leaving the viewer to wade through an hour-and-a-half of dreary supernatural twaddle enlivened only by a few cheap-jack visual effects in the closing moments, when spiritualist John (Bob Kipp) is called in to try and banish Sura. For the most part, this is instantly forgettable straight-to-video nonsense of the lowest order, a lifeless low-budget clunker with very few redeeming qualities.
