I think its' a case of the writer not really knowing how to end the story properly.

I fully agree. I was actually going to start a new post to say just that! I really enjoyed the beginning. Thought it had great potential with a nice "Carrie" feel to it. But at mid-point into the movie it begins to disappoint and just keeps doing so until we reach the end.

At the end of the day I'm left with a "I didn't particularly like this movie" feeling. :-/

The script was weak. I agree. We were supposed to see the parallels with Dante’s Divine Comedy and the circles of Hell, with sinners stuck in ice (mirrors, anyone?), but it was ham-fisted and a decent idea resulting in a wasted opportunity. And, Oh! The Irony! Plastic surgeon Dad euthanized malformed infant daughter. By what medical protocol was euthanasia justified? Hello?! Malpractice?! We needed to see more of life in the “mirror” world, but that was apparently too much intellectual work. PS Doctors sleeping with patients is a BIG ethical and legal no-no.

Having just eviscerated the moronic script, I now praise India Eisley’s performance. I discovered her only yesterday, in Kite, and am binging on her films. I’d no idea of her parents, but I’m not surprised. She created 2 distinct characters in this, if not train wreck, then fender bender, and that’s hard to do. Not JK Simmons-level Counterpart different characters, but MUCH better than what this deserved. Plus, she is magnetic, intelligent and erotic. Bravo.
