Minor misspelling and moving item to YMMV
* NoBudget: The second and third movies had no studio involvement on Lommel's request, and it shows, with it's heavy reliance on stock-footage, and the quality looking to be worse than the first film. * OrwellianRetcon: A strange example. It was established in the first movie that the mirror that holds the evil spirit can com-bust into flames by applying water to it. The sequel, despite having stock footage that shows those exact events, including the climax where ''the entire mirror is dumped into a well'', that one shard '''never com-busts, despite being in a swimming pool in that climax!'''

* SequelHook: The mirror is destroyed but the one shard stuck to the kid's leg glows red implying the killer ghost is still very much active.

** UpToEleven in the sequel. A tooth brush manages to ''pierce through a man's mouth, somehow.''

Added DiffLines:
* TooDumbToLive: In the sequel, a woman got pushed and managed to latch her mouth onto the exhaust pipe. Getting away from that has not crossed her mind. No surprise what happens to her then.

to:
* BoundAndGaggedBoundAndGagged: Lacey's mother's boyfriend should not have done that to Willy... ** Lacey had a dream involving Willy doing this to a woman. * CherkovsGunman: The mirror in the introduction where Lacey witnessed Willy murdering their mother's boyfriend. That somehow stored his spirit, which Lacey accidentally released, or angered by striking at it.

Added DiffLines:
* BoundAndGaggedRedHerring: Willy's dream sequence and attempted murder, as well as covering up all the mirrors. Turns out he has nothing to do with actually killing anybody in this film.

* WhatAnIdiot: In the sequel, Lacey decided to keep that one mirror shard that was not destroyed, who should know full well that it is capable of causing death onto people by merely ''shinning light towards the victims!'' After all, she (''somehow'') knows about the lovers who were killed. That and it is capable of possessing people, something ''she has been a victim of!'' ** CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: On top of this, she talks about the whole events (including a pointless dream sequence, and two series of deaths she could not have witnessed, let alone be able to explain in perfect detail) to a group of people who decided they wanted to make a movie about it. This ends up getting almost all of them killed by the Butler, who was possessed by the mirror shard Lacey kept. She even admitted to the audience that the mirror spirit was seeking revenge to those who dared to exploit it's story. So basically, in order to have prevented their deaths, she could have just simply ''kept quiet!'' Better yet, why not just ''destroy the remaining shard?!''
