Goofs

In Suki's room we see a set of 3 Hi-Fi components stacked on each other: 2 silver (cassette deck and amplifier) and 1 black (cd-player). In the first shot we see the black one (cd) stacked in the middle with the two silver ones on top and at the bottom. After a while (next close shot) we see the same components but they are stacked differently: The black (cd-player) lays at the bottom with the two other silver components on top of it. See more »

A different take on the Amityville saga which has its own odd charm
2 September 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Amityville: A New Generation marks a different take on the Amityville saga- focusing on the personal history and demons of our main character, the likable floppy-haired Keyes Terry played by Ross Partridge, rather than focusing solely on things that go bump in the night. In this sense Amityville: A New Generation is a more thoughtful film that its predecessors, and a bit of a slow burner.

It certainly won't win any awards but it does try something different- time is taken to introduce us to characters, in this case a group of struggling artists very much in the 90210/ Melrose Place mould of attractive, living in amazing apartments but supposedly broke and angst ridden. It's endearing in its own way- right down to the fashion. The occasional self importance regarding the "artwork" can lead to some unintentional humour, all of which adds to the odd charm of this film.

It is nice to see appearances from an older David Naughton (the male lead David Kessler in An American Werewolf in London) and a younger Terry O'Quinn (who plays the enigmatic Locke on the television drama Lost)

Overall though the film is unlikely to set anyone's world alight it does draw you in, and you will find yourself caring for the lead. However as I've said before, expect a different pace and style from the earlier Amityville horror films. Like 1992 its focus is as much on characters changing as supernatural happenings. So be aware of what to expect if you're thinking of picking this one up.
