Plot synopsis
Whoever watched movies like Candyman, Mirror or the recent Oculus must have drawn this conclusion: don’t mess with mirrors. Of course, being a teenager sometimes makes you unable to learn any lessons. That is why four young Russians decide to take a closer look at the urban legend of the Queen of Spades. Instead of shooting with their Counter Strike comrades, they stand in front of a mirror and begin to summon evil spirits. Now, to be honest, in most of these cases, the “spirit” you want to talk to ends up being your drunken uncle booing behind a curtain. Unfortunately for them, this is not the case here. Not only does our Queen enjoy scaring young Russian studs, but she seems to have taken a good look at horror classics such as The Exorcist and The Shining. Definitely a force to be reckoned with.
