I made a list of the worst performances of all times:

Kiefer Sutherland is in it.

I just saw the original movie INTO THE MIRROR.I was blown away...by the fact it was worse than this.MIRRORS have obvious flaws but it still made want to keep watching.INTO THE MIRROR,on the other hand,was plain boring.Since I knew the ending would be the same,I looked at it with the same eyes I did with MIRRORS,like I didn't know.It turns out the ending is bad on both movies.In MIRRORS it makes no sense.In INTO THE MIRROR it only makes sense if you look at it as an artsy film,which it isn't.It completely killed the tone of the movie.Actually,it didn't,since the movie wasn't a horror flick like they promised.It was mostly talking.

Since I gave 20% to MIRRORS,I give INTO THE MIRROR 10%.

Yeah, see -- this is what half-assed storytelling does to your movie when you don't bother to explain everything because the movie is just one long set-up for a sequel that won't happen. Here's a crazy idea, Hollywood, try making a single, stand-alone movie first, then see how it does with critics and audiences, and then ... AND ONLY THEN ... make as many sequels as you like.

2)How would you explain that Kiefer's son entered the World through water?
 
There's also 15 other questions(literally)that haven't been answered and won't because of the script.I guess we can try to hold on to the explanations of the original movie.

What? I'm confused. It's simply that our character died in the climax showdown and is now stuck in a limbo. What's not to get? He's in the world of the mirror monsters.

As I said, it's called a bad script...

Yeah, ya gotta love those cliff-hanger endings. Oh wait, those only work for TV shows...

I have an explanation: a very bad screenplay!

After looking through all your Forums, there still isn't an explanation for this film's ending. Does anyone here have one?

Thankfully, the fad of making Americanized Korean and Japanese horror movies has died since then.

2/10.Why?The ending had the same tone as the one from the director's cut of THE BUTTERFLY EFFECT.If it wasn't for that ending,I would've give it like a 4.It's barely scary.

Actually,why didn't he get nominated?He wasn't awful,but come on!I understand it's not 100% easy to cry and makes us feel emotional at the same time.But who screams like that when being on fire?I know the director of that scene was a replacement(Aja's wife was in labor),but still.

Still, stop remaking Asian films! The American versions are always worse, except for maybe the first "The Ring" remake ... maybe, but then of course they made the American sequel, and that was worse!

Well, it's not actually a remake. Aja used the same concept with evil spirits behind mirrors but dramatically changed everything else. Oh, and I don't think the original film was that good as compared to Ringu, Shutter, and all that jazz.
