Awards
Best Horror SBFF 2007

Award winning film THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS is a psychological horror detailing with one mans slide into madness. THE ARTIST (Paul McCarthy) becomes wracked by horrific visions from a mysterious mirror.

The Artist lives alone in a foreboding old house in the country. Once prolific he is now a desperate man at odds with his work and unable to paint. When he discovers a mysterious package left on his doorstep The Artist finds a strange mirror within and soon becomes wracked by horrific visions.

 

Beguiled by the mirror his work becomes fuelled by the visions as he paints like never before. However disturbing things soon begin to happen to him and those who enter the house. Escalating with each vision, with each brush stroke the mirror's grip on The Artist tightens. Can The Artists untangle himself from the mirror's creeping influence before it is too late?
