A struggling artist receives a mirror from one of his subjects.... After reading the title can you guess where it all happened? This haunted mirror thriller has some interesting moments (most revolving around said mirror's effects on the other struggling artists living with, or next door, to the lead character) and does a pretty respectable job building suspense towards the end, which makes it one of the better Amityville films out there. Still that isn't saying much considering their overall quality. Worth a look.

The plot for AMITYVILLE: A NEW GENERATION is probably something a 7-year-old kid could think of on a boring, rainy day. A haunted mirror? No way! It's very silly but sooooo fun! I honestly do not have the slightest idea where the ideas for these AMITYVILLE sequels come from! But, it's fun, gory and very cool. Check it if you liked the first film.

This is not based on a true story. A photographer gives money to a street man, and the street man gives the photographer a possessed mirror. The photographer lives with his girlfriend in an appartment in New york, and the romance turns deadly, because of the mirror.

Well, maybe this one isn't the absolute worst, but it's still pretty bad.

Oh the horror! The streak of rotten "Amityville Horror" sequels continues in "Amityville: A New Generation." In the direct-to-video affair, an up-and-coming photographer (Ross Partridge, whose credentials include (1) episode of "In Living Color" as well as playing "Businessman" in the "Prom Night" remake) brings a haunted mirror back to his hip and happening pad. It's not long before the mirror starts distorting reality, shedding some light on the wannabe-artist's past as well as threatening his circle of friends which includes Shaft and asian-Shannon Doherty in its ranks. Yet another "Amityville" flick where the "Horror" happens outside of the iconic house from the Margot Kidder/James Brolin original, it's no surprise to find "A New Generation" deviating even further from the original formula than before.

Not that twisting the formula is such a bad thing -- it sort of worked in "Amityville 1992: It's About Time" (sort of) -- but the execution leaves quite a bit to be desired. For those keeping score, "Amityville: A New Generation" is the seventh installment in the shockingly long-winded and consistently mediocre "Amityville Horror" franchise. It's to be expected that the film isn't exactly top-notch material, but even judging it as a b-movie doesn't do it justice. The plot, if you can call it that, is really just an excuse for the presence of some admittedly cool paintings and softcore nudity (its only redeeming features, really). The horror in this "Amityville Horror" is in its banality. There is simply no tension to be found, and the bloodshed is kept to a minimum.

Now this is another chapter of the Amityville series that seem to go on forever and ever. This one is rather different in ideas and now it's the evil inside the mirror verses mankind. A quiet photographer take a picture of a homeless man who insists he takes a beautiful antique mirror home, so he takes it home to Long Island and has a party with several friends and they seem to have accidents after looking in the mirror. Sounds queer well it might but the story is unusual with great cast that puts their skills to work making it an A grade horror in a world of it's own. The reflections of the victims in the glass witness their own fate, how, well that's another chapter so how many will survive and who is the villain I'm not saying a word, they will have you suspended in time as the story unfolds and has a hold on you and which you can't escape from beginning until the end of the show, creepy and unnerving that will have you intrigued til the very end, So collect the popcorn, climb into your chair, relax with feet up, now it's time for fabulous entertainment that will have you amused for a while under the covers. By the way beware of strangers bearing gifts even for free. Enjoy!

Definitely Low Budget, but with High Production values.

If you have a 5.1 surround that has an emulator mode, you will need it for this, since the audio is not for surround, and looks like a VHS to DVD transfer( of good Quality).The emulation mode will pay back with scares during the spooky scenes.

The story surrounds the mirror, but all is not what it seems. I have memories of watching this when it first came out, and it scared me then, as it does now. Mostly good cast, with a couple of extremely good people, and this makes the angle on the mirror story take flight in the best possible way. Definitely B grade, but at the price it is here, its worth it, and it does scare. The Amityville Curse "Schtick" is just an excuse for the basic story, but it works. If you can't afford a more expensive scarey film, then this is a good , VERY good alternative.

This Amityville choice has us in our seat by the power of a mirror that once resided in the house that fear built. The story might have succeeded were it not for better evil possessed item outings in the Amityville series. The camera work and effects strive to make up for the lack of ingenuity with the storyline, and never do we the audience believe this could be anything other than a B-movie attempt at the greatness approached by some Amityville films. Still, some suspense exists and occasional inventive scare tactics intrude now and again, pushing the viewer slowly along the rails of a slightly better than average haunting tale. Not really Amityville caliber, but worth a single rented watch unless you are a die hard Amityville fan who must posess all the films. 2 and a half stars
