Keyes is a successful photographer who lives at the border of Skid Row. While walking home one day, he notices a homeless man with a strange old mirror. Immediately struck by it for reasons he cannot explain, Keyes convinces the odd old man to sell it to him. However, the mirror seems to have a strange effect on all those who look at it, and it’s not long before Keyes himself starts behaving in increasingly erratic and unhinged ways, unaware that his actions are being controlled by an evil force lurking inside of the mirror; a force determined to use his soul to awaken an unspeakable evil.
Set against the beginnings of gentrification in LA’s notorious Skid Row, John Murlowski’s AMITYVILLE: A NEW GENERATION blends neon-tinged lighting and hefty bloodshed in this distinctly early 90s flavored entry in the franchise. Starring Ross Partridge (Stranger Things), Julia Nickson (Babylon 5) and David Naughton (An American Werewolf in London), plus photographed by Academy Award winner Wally Pfister (The Dark Knight, Inception), Vinegar Syndrome brings AMITYVILLE: A NEW GENERATION to Blu-Ray in a new 4K restoration of its original camera negative.
