Synopsis

Human sacrifice as part of an ancient rite is the unexpected consequence when an attractive antique dealer unwittingly buys a mirror with mysterious evil powers. Michael Roberts (Lonnen) and Laura Stephens (Ewing), antique dealing colleagues and sometime lovers, meet at an auction where Laura buys a job lot, which includes an unusual-looking mirror. While she and Michael ponder over the junk she has acquired, a sinister dealer (Darrow) offers to buy the mirror, swiftly raising the price but Laura decides not to be swayed by the lure of money. Instead, Fate has a diabolical hand to play.

Black magic. Nice looking girl. Daft guy trying to do his Knight in shining armour bit. (He means well!) There's a lot going on in this busy. suspenseful little tale. Its good viewing with the classic 'House Of Horror' sting in the tale.
