Movie Info

This tired, pointless sequel (the sixth in the creatively bankrupt series) continues the premise explored in both Amityville: The Evil Escapes and later used in Amityville 1992: It's About Time, in which the demonic forces occupying the infamous haunted Long Island spook-house reside within various household items that subsequently haunt their unsuspecting new owners. This time the curse inhabits an antique mirror from the house -- passed on to a photographer (Ross Partridge) by one of his subjects -- whose reflection presages the violent death of nearly everyone who gazes into it. Inane plot twists abound, leading Partridge to discover his own connection to Amityville's dark heritage, while his pretentious friends die in messy and uninteresting ways.

Audience Reviews for Amityville: A New Generation

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.

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.

This sixth Amityville film continues the pattern of the previous two by having the evil move to a new location via a piece of furniture from the original house. This time it is a creepy mirror that is brought into a an old building that features studio spaces occupied by "artists." The film never achieves anything "new" as its title might suggest. Instead, it is just another tired--if still reasonably enjoyable--entry in the series. If you don't mind bad horror films, then it provides an evening's entertainment. Otherwise, I would definitely avoid it.
