  • Oh what the hell.

    They probably created that in the movie just to scare people. It's just a silly superstition.

  • Ha I saw that stupid movie. I've never heard of that and when she said it I stopped and thought for a minute but then realized that they make so many baby toys with mirrors and that it's good for babies to see their own reflection because that's how they learn!! Just think of the amount of people living today that have looked in mirrors as infants, and they're still here.

  • Ohh and in the movie the superstition was that if a baby saw they're own reflection before they were a year old it meant they were going to die soon. Such BS.
