Storyline

An egotistical horror novelist dismisses the supernatural in real life, but he is forced to reconsider his disbelief when he finds himself pursued by a bizarre figure with a misshapen face. The strange thing? He can only see the man when he looks in the mirror. Each time he looks into a reflective surface, he finds the weird figure gaining on him with malicious intent, which has him terrified of what will happen if the ghastly figure should ever reach him.

Pretty good, low budget Scorsese
3 April 2008 | by QuentintarantadoSee all my reviews

My brother had this theory about Scorsese. When he has good writing, he makes technically excellent, but neat and slightly dull movies like Color of Money. But when the script is a mess, then he makes exciting and brilliant movies, partially to compensate for the mess in the script. Here, Scorsese goes back to his Roger Corman roots, making a cheap horror thriller that Corman would have been proud to be associated with. The story may not make much sense, but the technical bravura of the episode makes it stand out. This, as well as the Zemeckis "Go to the Head of the Class" and the guilty pleasure "Hell Toupee" are my favorite Amazing Stories episodes. It's a pity I missed Brad Bird's Family Dog.
