Ben Carson is an ex-police detective in New york whose alcoholism made him incompetent on the job and caused him to kill a man. Now he's trying to get his life in order. He's living with his kid sister to save money. He's taking medication to wean himself off the booze. Most important, he's trying to win back the trust of his estranged wife, a medical examiner, and maintain a loving relationship with his two young children. To make money while waiting for reinstatement, he takes a job as a night watchman at a department store gutted by fire. That was a mistake. He is soon tormented by the same supernatural mirrors that plagued his predecessor. The images in these mirrors do not reflect reality as we know it. The images will stare back at you, but remain in the mirror when you walk away. The images will even try to kill you. Soon, Ben Carson finds that the mirrors' demons follow him everywhere in every reflective surface. They're willing to harass him and his family until they get what they want. Ben's job is to find out exactly what that is.

- [first lines] Gary Lewis: [after opening window and seeing that it doesn't lead anywhere] Oh fuck!
Gary Lewis: [to mirror] I wasn't trying to escape. [mirror starts to crack] Gary Lewis: [crying] No! Please, don't! Don't! I don't want to die!
Ben Carson: [to Robert Esseker] Don't make me threaten you!
Ben Carson: [while holding Anna Esseker at gunpoint] My family's not dying tonight.
Ben Carson: [screaming at mirror] What do you want from me?!
- In the final shot, as Ben approaches the mirrored building, a little Korean girl in white with a bright pink sweater and her mother pass by the window. The characters are identical to those in the final shot of the original film, Geoul sokeuro (2003).
The name 'Esseker' is an anagram for 'Seekers'. This can be an appropriate terminology for the demons who live on the other side of the mirrors seeking out their host, Anna Esseker.
Shot in Romania, most of it was filmed in Nicolae Ceausescu's unfinished Academy of Sciences building in Bucharest.
Although Alexandre Aja has denied that the film is a remake of the South Korean horror film Geoul sokeuro (2003), it quite clearly says it is in the closing credits.
Paula Patton was cast because director Alexandre Aja and producer Grégory Levasseur had previously considered her for their production P2 (2007).
