Before The Craft, there was MIRROR MIRROR. Co-written by sisters Annette and Gina Cascone and directed by Marina Sargenti, the film follows high school goth Megan (little-known cult film sensation Rainbow Harvest) as she deals with typical teenage stuff: crushes, bullies, and a haunted mirror that grants her supernatural powers. MIRROR MIRROR combines YA vibes with plenty of R-rated thrills, but the film’s most notable—and enjoyable—aspect is its nuanced portrayal of relationships between women, which was rare for the horror genre in 1990. – adapted from notes by the American Genre Film Archive Brattle Debut!
