A not-quite-direct-to-video gem from the early 90s, this female-scripted and directed gothic slasher looks at the toxic lifecycle of bullying and teenage despair, and marked the last major role of enigmatic actress (and Winona Ryder look-a-like) Rainbow Harvest.

Shy teen goth Megan Gordon (Harvest) moves into a new house in suburban Los Angeles with her recently widowed mother Susan (Black). While exploring her new surroundings, she finds an antique mirror that seemingly belonged to the previous owners of the house. Not quite fitting in, and endlessly bullied by her classmates, Megan discovers she can use the mirror to enact revenge on her tormentors, which sets her on a dark and dangerous path...

Tickets for BFI Members go on sale on 8 May, and general booking opens on the 16 May.
