* In ''Series/DoctorWho'', there's a hall-of-mirrors chase in the Second Doctor episode "The Seeds of Death," with an Ice Warrior lumbering after our hero. It's reminiscent of an old silent movie, and very tense despite the Warrior's slowness.

During TheChase, especially if at a carnival or AmusementPark, the quarry will duck into a funhouse. When the pursuer follows, he will be confronted with a HallOfMirrors, dozens of panes of glass -- every one of them reflecting an image of his quarry, taunting him. The pursuer has to figure out which is the real one before he escapes.

Though it often is so, the HallOfMirrors need not be in an actual funhouse, or even in a carnival setting. It can also be used outside a chase scenario, perhaps in its natural setting or even for a generic kaleidoscope effect.

Most of the trouble characters encounter in a HallOfMirrors results from the mirrors not behaving the way real mirrors do. This is justifiable with mirrors that are magic, [[DemonicPossession possessed]], supernatural, or otherwise likely to behave oddly anyway, but it also happens with mirrors that are supposedly ordinary.
