I enjoyed Piranha slightly more than THHE.

...but yeah, Mirrors was very weak.

Mirrors was a disappointment but still had splashes of greatness throughout it.

And I like Piranha more than THHE. Why? Because it's more enjoyable. THHE is a fantastic horror film but I wouldn't really call it fun.

And yeah Aja didn't direct it but he did Co-write and produce it and was responsible for selecting the director.

Yeah I was confused why everybody was talking about Aja... I had to double check to make sure he didn't direct this...

Yep. Mirrors is easily Aja's black eye. Good effects, but that's about it.

I believe this flick came from the same guy behind P2...yes, you read that correctly, P2.

First impressions are overrated.

I would've liked P2 a lot more if the film had a different lead. Wes Bentley tanked the film for me.

Define "selecting the director" because

Quote:
Fairly certain Franck Khalfoun conceptualized the hook/idea as well as the majority of directorial choices.*
and they've been working together since High Tension. To me, that sounds like Khalfoun had an idea and needed Aja's name to get it out there.
If you're not convinced, this is the second time this setup has been utilized, they did P2 together although in that instance, Khafloun had nothing to do with the screenplay or premise. How'd that turn out?

Not saying Aja's not a player or that I don't respect that man just saying if you're going to pat someone on the back it might as well be the right person.

If by 'splashes of greatness' you mean, one good scene in two plus hours of hackneyed shit, than yes, splashes, splashes everywhere.

You continued to give Aja the fair-share of the credit, and you're entitled, but I can't dispute that, with facts?

I would have loved to see this on the big screen. It deserved a wide release.

Oh well. Getting the DVD as soon as it gets released.

I'm sorry I didn't give credit to a director, who before this film, only directed the ultra meh P2 and some terrible looking Cuba Gooding Jr. flick and gave credit to the guy who directed IMO 3 great horror films, 2 of them being remakes.

The director now has my respect. Hopefully he stays on the path of greatness.
