Amityville: A New Generation
Director(s): John Murlowski (Contagion, Automatic)
Writer(s): Christopher DeFaria & Antonio Toro (both of Amityville 1992: It’s About Time)

Director John Murlowski’s had quite the baffling career. While he’s recently managed to make me happy with the silly Terminal Error and the creepy Black Cadillac, his earlier efforts are another story. Amityville: A New Generation, the seventh in the Amityville Horror series, was his second film. A few years later he’d direct the infamous Santa With Muscles, which spends its time these days hovering around the bottom of IMDb’s Lowest Rated Films list. A New Generation is no Santa With Muscles, but it doesn’t come close to matching the success he’d find in the twenty-first century.

Similar to its predecessor Amityville: It’s About Time, A New Generation features a remnant from the old Amityville house wrecking havoc on a group of innocent people. This time it’s a mirror that’s causing all the trouble. Young photographer Keyes Terry is drawn to a homeless man across the street from the eatery he’s sitting in. After taking his picture Terry decides to give the man a few dollars. The homeless man insists that Terry takes an old mirror as a token of his appreciation. Only when Terry brings it back to his artist-filled apartment complex, it soon begins to cause the inhabitants to kill themselves in disturbing ways.

More is eventually revealed about the plot, but it doesn’t really matter. A New Generation is a below mediocre entry into the generally mediocre series that lacks both an interesting story and a special effects budget. When one considers that the script revolves around various make-up and digital effects, the poor quality of them winds up being the biggest of many problems found within.

Just watch It’s About Time and call it a day.
DVD: Now out on DVD via Lions Gate, this one is barebones.
