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.

The connection from this to the rest of the Amityville series is that a bum, or is he more than that, has a mirror that came from the Amityville house. A local artist buys the mirror. But he got more than he bargained for. It's not just a mirror. It's a mirror....with a curse. As his friends start turning up dead, one by one, he has to discover what's causing it. Can he do it? Can he do it before the mirror gets it's mirroric hold on this unfamous artist? It is possible.

The plot gets slow at points and if you're not all that interested in it, you may start to rest your eyes now and then. If you're a fan of the series and like to collect things related to it, no matter how bad, then you might get a small kick out of this. Don't spend too much on it though.

Be on the lookout for sellers that are selling made on demand/burned disc versions of the film. They are selling their wares on this product, even though this is the DVD version and not the made on demand version.

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!

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.

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.
