The Mirror

Don't confuse this film with a newspaper. Pinguin TV's first horror flic tells the story of a renter who unfortunately kills off his tenants from time to time ("Please hold still and it won't hurt!"). The whole psyche of the renter reveals itself when he looks into a mirror.


Info
This film is one of the few ones where I didn't use a title generator. It actually shows the film title via a mirror written on a piece of paper. Blood (red ketchup) is running over the mirror.
The only Pinguin TV film which featured Lennart Kirchner on camera. Lennart took also the video course offered at school and is quite good making serious films about nature.
Inspiration for this movie came from two different sources: Stanley Kubrik's version of Shining and Hitchcock's Psycho.
After this film I finally decided to end my actor career ;-) I rather make a fool out of myself at Karaoke :)
Parts of The Mirror were filmed on the 17th of November 1996. Just like Indy, the film was almost given up, but later completed.
