A strange force is wiping out the people in Taft Georgia, one by one, in increasingly horrific ways. Like a spooky carnival ride through a house of horrors, it's all done with mirrors. Literally. The sight in the corner of one's eye of a formless shadow of death looming back at them through the looking glass is a harbinger of doom. The story surrounds Antonio Valenti, a police detective whose dreams of a quiet little life on the force in a small town are shattered when numerous sightings occur of a mysterious and ghastly presence haunting and stalking through all the town's mirrors. With the assistance of a town reporter looking for the one scoop that will make his career, Valenti joins with a down-on-his-luck ex-gambler and a young man with a sixth sense in hot pursuit of an inter-dimensional demon of death summoned out of an uderground room of mirrors to kill and to steal dreams.
