I saw this movie around the early 90's and I have no idea what it was called.  Someone referred me to this message board, so hopefully someone can help. 

This particular movie was about this unattractive and unpopular girl in highschool.  I remember her being a dirty blonde with horrible acne.  She couldn't get guys attention and was teased by all the popular girls.  Somehow, she got this mirror that when she shone it into any guy's eyes, she could mind control them.  She got all these different boys to like her, then she would kill them.  Another scene I remember is her making this guy (after she had "used" him) lie on a table saw. 

Anyone see this movie?

I haven't seen it but it could very well be "Mirror, Mirror." (Released in 1990.)
Here's the IMDB page for the original: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0100156/
This film stars Karen Black and the recently deceased Yvonne de Carlo.  Bluesad
Lemme know if that's the one.

You might actually be thinking of an episode of "Friday the 13th: The Series", which had pretty much the same scenario you described. The mirror was a gold compact mirror, and the girl had a protective older sister. At the end of the episode, the girl uses the mirror to steal her sister's boyfriend, and the two go to the prom together. At the end, the girl and the boyfriend jump off the school roof and fall to their deaths. Ring any bells?

Fausto's lead looks like a good one.  "Mirror Mirror" does not match well:  the mirror is a full length one in the girl's bedroom and she does not shine it in people's eyes, instead she draws the power from it that causes bad things to happen to her enemies.  Also, the girl dresses more like a poor man's Lydia (from Beetlejuice).

 I agree with Andrew, it is diffinitely not "Mirror, Mirror".   I could be the Friday the 13th episode.

This is a review of the episode I was talking about. It even mentions the part about the table saw.

I did a review of the series as a whole, which I hope to have posted in the main bad movies section by tomorrow. Smile

Dang! Was never a big fan of Friday the 13th: the Series. In fact, I've only seen a handful of episodes, so I'm definitely out of my league on this one. Thanks for the input guys!  TeddyR

Ah, thank you.  I think it's the Vanity's Mirror.  Actually, pretty sure it is.  I've been trying to figure this out for years!

It is "Vanity's Mirror." I remember, because of that bit of one of the boys being pushed backwards and hitting his head on a table saw, one of the more memorable deaths on "Friday the 13th: the Series." And "Vanity Mirror," if it is not my favorite episode of the series, is one of my favorites. A much underrated television series (IMHO.)
