The Witch’s Mirror (El espejo de la bruja) is a beautiful, atmospheric, and uniquely Mexican take on the Gothic horror film.

When Elena (Dina de Marco) is murdered by her husband, Eduardo (Armando Calvo), the couple's housekeeper, Sara (Isabela Corona), plots to take revenge. Summoning Elena through the witch’s mirror, Sara exacts ghastly vengeance upon Eduardo and his new wife, Debora (Rosita Arenas).

Directed by Chano Urueta (The Brainiac), The Witch’s Mirror draws inspiration from such sources as Edgar Allan Poe, Rebecca, and Eyes Without a Face.
