Photographer Keyes is given an old mirror from an homeless person he photographs on the street, takes it home and gives it a friend. He doesn't know yet that people see horrible things happen to themselves in the mirror and later these things come true. Are these really suicides or is there a demonic force behind the mirror?Written by

(at around 26 mins) 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 »
Ok, I admit, I have not seen the original yet; but in all this movie isn't all that bad. The idea of objects (like a clock in Amityville 6 (1992 it's about time) or a mirror in this tale (Amityville 7) carrying the original horrors are a bit hokey, but then again it makes sense. I liked this movie better than its time traveling predecessor and this one gives an interesting history if an Amityville family through the deranged father/psyco-killer handing the mirror and its inner demons to his son (who unknowingly accepts the gift and the re-opening of buried images/memories). Maybe it was because I was in New York and Amityville is in Long Island, but this film is at least average (hence a 5 or 6).
