~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

The Witch's Mirror (1962)

AKA: El Espejo de la Bruja

Director: Cahno Urueta


Premise:
A husband murders his wife. The house keeper suspects foul play uses black magic to summon the wife's ghost from the grave so she can seek revenge.

My Take:
A rather stylish oldie from Mexico with combines a lot of genre elements with ease. The wife is murder and is resurrected with magic and communication with spirits. A little haunting goes on. Then the husband's new wife gets mysteriously burned. He gives her transplant surgery with new hands, belonging to the deceased wife, which start taking over. It's simply good, old fashion fun.

Rating: In the middle
