In no way does this feel like an Amityville Horror movie, aside from the lose "connection" of a haunted mirror. But I gotta say, of the string of straight-to-video dreck, this series turned into, this has got to be my favorite. It's just such a time capsule of the 90s, and features a treasure trove of genre favorite actors. But by the time the demons and gargoyles start showing up, I was having fun.
A homeless man gifts a mirror that was in the original Amityville house to a photographer and a series of bad things happen to the inhabitants of the loft apartments. This marks the third time the series has used a storyline of a possessed household item from the original Amityville house to cause havoc elsewhere. A lamp, a clock, and now a mirror. Evidently a tired series with little new to offer although I would still be intrigued to see a household appliance like a blender or toaster from the original house used in a new film.
Better than average entry in the never ending Amityville series.
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.
Though it has a very loose connection with Amityville, and is just borrowing elements from previous Amityville films like possessed items (this film features a possessed mirror), the film is surprisingly enjoyable. This is due to it's strong cast (which I'm surprised that all of these people are in this film) that includes Terry O'Quinn, Julia Nickson, Lin Shaye, Richard Roundtree and David Naughton.
So after the lamp, came the clock and now here comes the mirror... This was another weak entry into the Amityville franchise, it was generally a very weak film which was more about characters histories, than the usual ongoings. It also lacked any real build up of anything special, it just felt like a very long drawn out story where little actually goes on and concluded with a bland finale!
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.
i haven't seen it yet but from trailer i don't expect many things
I LOVE SCARY MOVIES!
