Watch the Bloody First 3 Minutes of Mirrors

In case you haven’t figured it out from all the clips and red band trailer you’ve seen for Alexandre Aja’s “Mirrors”, his Kiefer Sutherland horror movie and sorta-remake of the South Korean movie “Into the Mirrors”, but this thing is going to be bloody. You know, back to the good old days of Aja’s earlier works; for instance, the notoriously gruesome opening sequence of his “High Tension”, which had the killer in a truck all by his little lonesome, giving himself, well, let’s just say that girl didn’t exactly approve of what he’s doing with her mouth. In that spirit, here’s the first gruesome 3 minutes of “Mirrors”.

Kiefier Sutherland is a ex NY cop battling sinister forces in mirrors that endanger both him and his family.

Starring Kiefer Sutherland, Paula Patton, Cameron Boyce, Erica Gluck, Amy Smart, Mary Beth Peil, John Shrapnel, and Jason Flemyng. Aja, of course, directs.

The mirror strikes back August 15.
