Audience Reviews for Amityville: A New Generation
The biggest problem with this series is that it tries to be creative, but it changes its plot devices and the filmmakers really can't seem to craft a compelling, terrifying haunted house movie and rely more on recycled ideas from previous works to keep this series going while it's clear that it has been on life support for quite some time. This film offers nothing new to this tired out series, and viewers will notice the sheer lack of effective ideas that really don't offer anything to the haunted house formula. This film is very bad, and is pointless in terms of storytelling because the scriptwriters simple plot that doesn't take off. This is a poor attempt at creating an effective horror film, one that is truly entertaining and fun from start to finish. What can you expect from a sixth film? Nothing much that's for sure. This is yet another run of the mill awful sequel that fails to deliver the chills from a good old fashioned haunted house film. Relying on previous ideas, the filmmakers craft a film that is predictable and tiresome. The film was doomed to fail right off the start. With a poor cast, bad ideas and sloppy storytelling, this is yet another misfire in this pointless series of bad sequels. Awful in terms of quality and directing, this entry really doesn't deliver anything worth seeing or mentioning for that matter. Avoid this one like every other in the series, because this one is predictable like all the previous entries that have plagued this franchise.
At the rate these movies are ploughing through the artifacts from the Amityville house it won't be long before we get down to the floorboards, but for now it's a mirror that's causing problems for more cardboard characters in this sixth entry in the series. A homeless man hands it over to artist hairdo Ross Partridge, who then has strange visions and discovers some unpleasant revelations about his past. This mundane horror trundles along at a dull pace, leaving us waiting for a build up that never comes as the various 'spooky' goings-on lead to a dumb finale. Bland and lifeless, with ropey acting and Partridge's huge hair not helping matters.
I'm really surprised any studio would allow this to be made. Why name it Amityville? It's just politically incorrect to claim that this has anything to do with what happened at the Long Island house.
