Sunday Bloody Sunday: The ‘Bathtub Scene’ From ‘Mirrors’ (2008)

A lot of times in horror movies that are borderline shitty, a really inventive death scene can somewhat make up for the shittiness.  Case in point:  2008’s, Mirrors. I remember being pretty excited for this one because Alexandre Aja (High Tension, The Hills Have Eyes) was behind the camera and Jack Bauer (Keifer Sutherland) was the lead!  What could go wrong, right?  Well, the story was ridiculous and it just wasn’t scary.  But, and it’s a big but, Mirrors had some crazy WTF moments (the opening scene was gnarly) and quite possibly a Top 5 death scene of all time in my book.

So on Sunday Bloody Sunday this week, I’ll do my best to spotlight the death scene of the lovely Amy Smart.  Commonly referred to as the ‘bathtub scene’, I’m well aware that pics don’t really do the moment justice.  Because there isn’t a high quality version up on Youtube though, I’m giving it to you in picture form, but feel free to go watch one of the low quality versions on Youtube though to get a better idea.  Amy Smart’s reflection in the mirror causes her to rip her jaw apart and this is where I would say something with a pun like, “It’s jaw-dropping!”.  Honestly couldn’t believe they took it as far as they did, but for gorehounds like me, I was a happy camper.  Now look below, but you’ve been warned:
