I used to do that with my Ramona books too! What if I magically get through the next 120 pages of Ramona and Her Father while waiting for 20 minutes in the dentist's office? WHAT WILL I READ THEN?! I better bring along Ramona and Her Mother, Ramona the Brave, Ramona the Pest, Ramona Forever, Ramona's World, and Beezus and Ramona- just in case.

I thought that the point of your original post was to show how:

A - Modern movies are using the mirror scare to excess

B - How taken out of context they lose a bit of their shock value

C - And also how when viewed in mass, they're more amusing than scary.

I think the key points here are that most of the movies you used to illustrate your supercut were more modern and also derivitave.

Its totally outside of the point to talk about Repulsion, one of the few movies that got the mirror scare right and actually utilizes the device to further plot rather than as a cheap gimmick, as you more or less are already saying that Repulsion did it right with its omission, no?

One of my favourite scary mirror scenes is in Poultergeist, when this one guy is looking in the bathroom mirror and he starts picking at his face and then he practically rips his own face off, but then his face suddenly goes back to normal. Scared the crap outta me.

Hahahahaha I really hate how so many on the internet think that their opinions matter to anyone outside of their readers. Thanks for not only shutting this guy down, but doing it with wit. Love you

What about the "Mirror, Mirror" trilogy?

I'm glad you included Repulsion only because the newspaper on the dressing table reminded me of the beloved Edies.

Your previous omission was the most disgusting, atrocious thing ever to happen in America.

Kisses.
