In this Guillermo del Toro inspired gothic frightener, something ominous haunts the darkened hallways of a boarding school with a particularly troubling past. The sinister ghost of the Queen of Spades is out for blood, her victims the students of an old boarding school shrouded in gloomy rumors. Exploring the school’s abandoned wing, the teenagers discover a mirror covered in mysterious drawings. Facing it, they playfully recite an incantation which renders their innermost desires a reality — at the expense of nothing less than their souls. As tingly and creepy a ghost story as you could wish for, QUEEN OF SPADES: THE LOOKING GLASS will linger with you long after the shivers have stopped.
