There have been countless Amityville themed & inspired movies, sequels, reboots, knock-offs, so on and so forth. And with the sudden resurgence of spooky-filled haunted house thrillers kicked off by the Paranormal Activity franchise and continued with the success of Insidious and The Conjuring, it was only a matter of time before a major studio returned to the one that started them all! Amityville Horror!
Amityville: The Awakening, this Weinstein Company “official” sequel/reboot has been in the works for quite a long time. So much so that the Asylum beat them to the punch with their found-footage style Amity-rip-off The Amityville Haunting back in 2012 when this was originially slated to come out. But alas, they waited for the right script and director, dropped the tired found-footage again (thankfully) and are ready to unleash the evil of this infamous house in January of 2015! And here’s the first trailer!
The pros? »

The based-on-a-true-story Amityville Horror franchise just won't stay dead, screeching back to life every few years. The 1979 original spawned several sequels (some went straight to DVD, or video as it was in those days) and had a reboot in 2005. Here comes yet another reset, with Dimension Films altering the story slightly for Amityville: The Awakening. The first trailer is lurking below via Yahoo.This go-around finds Jennifer Jason Leigh as a single mother moving with her three children into the familiar house, hoping for a fresh start. Things have not been easy for them: daughter Belle (Bella Thorne) is reacting like your usual movie teenager to the idea of starting over at a new school, younger daughter Julie (Mckenna Grace) is at that adorable, hyperactive moppet stage and son James (Cameron Monaghan) is bed-ridden in a coma with injuries that doctors predict he may never overcome. So he probably has it worst, »
Dimension Films just unveiled the full trailer for its "Amityville: The Awakening" horror film, starring Jennifer Jason Leigh, Cameron Monaghan and Bella Thorne. Check it out below. Plot: Belle, her little sister, and her comatose twin brother move into a new house with their single mother Joan in order to save money to help pay for her brother's expensive healthcare.

The new movie is directed by Franck Khalfoun (Maniac, P2) and is the 12th installment in the franchise, which includes Ryan Reynolds' 2005 remake. The last two films went straight to DVD, but "Amityville: The Awakening" will be released in theaters on January 2nd, 2015. Trailer: »
It has been 35 years since the horror movie classic The Amityville Horror was released in theaters. In 2005 we got a remake that starred Ryan Reynolds, which wasn't very good. Now we have a new mediocre vision of the Amityville haunted house coming out soon called Amityville: The Awakening. Believe it or not, this is 12th film in the series, many of which have been released directly to DVD.
The horror film was directed by Franck Khalfoun (Maniac, P2) and it stars Jennifer Jason Leigh, Cameron Monaghan, and Bella Thorne. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like it will be a very good movie, it's just a bunch of recycled horror movie thrills. Dimension Films plans a theatrical release for this one, and it will come out on January 2nd, 2015.

The Amityville franchise has proven scarily good at cheating death – somehow, the series has spawned eleven installments thus far, including direct-to-video entry The Amityville Asylum last year. Now, Dimension Films is hoping to bring the terror back to the big screen with next January’s Amityville: The Awakening.
Today, thanks to Yahoo, the first trailer for the flick arrived online, promising gross-out visuals and an unbearable sense of dread. It’s an extremely effective first look at the movie that has us stoked to see the finished product.
With Bella Thorne (Disney’s Shake It Up) and Cameron Monaghan (Vampire Academy, The Giver) leading a cast that also includes Jennifer Jason Leigh and Kurtwood Smith, this installment is aimed squarely at the teen demographic.

Ready to return to America’s most famous haunted house? Even if you’re not, The Amityville Horror is back for the 12th time in Franck Khalfoun’s Amityville: The Awakening and it has a trailer from Yahoo. Blumhouse Productions, the new king of low-budget horror that gave us Paranormal Activity, Insidious, and The Purge, is bringing the decades old “fact based” (said very loosely) franchise back in the reboot starring Jennifer Jason Leigh, Bella Thorne, Cameron Monaghan, and Kurtwood Smith. The new film has a mother (Leigh) and her children, one of whom is comatose, move into the legendary house. Slowly strange occurrences start happening and one of the kids (Thorne) begins hearing voices asking her to kill. She also finds evidence that her bed-ridden brother (Monaghan) might just be possessed by the malevolent entity in the home. The film may not look like it is breaking new ground, »

With the original 1979 classic The Amityville Horror celebrating its 35th anniversary this year, it's a perfect time to check out the new trailer for Amityville: The Awakening, which will be the 12th installment in the long-running franchise, including several straight-to-video titles.
Jennifer Jason Leigh stars as a single mother who moves her three children (Bella Thorne, Cameron Monaghan and Taylor Spreitler) into the infamous house at 112 Ocean Ave., without knowing any of the history beforehand. Check out the first footage from this thriller, arriving in theaters January 2, 2015.
This incarnation of the long-running franchise will provide fans with at least one unique twist, with Cameron Monaghan's James confined to his bed with severe injuries. Jennifer Jason Leigh's Joan reveals that they moved into the house because it's close to the best neurological department in New York.
That’s right, yet another Amityville Horror movie is in the works! While you might be questioning the necessity of an additional instalment in the franchise, one quick look at the first trailer for Amityville: The Awakening shows that this one has a lot of potential and should deliver a lot of scares.
The latest Amityville sees Blended star Bella Thorne take on a leading role in the movie which features her character moving into the infamous house with her mother and sister. They make that fateful decision when her brother is left comatose, and the twist here is that the house appears to be communicating with him!
It’s been a decade since the last movie (which starred Ryan Reynolds and Melissa George), and Amityville: The Awakening will be the twelfth film in the series after it kicked of with 1979′s classic. The cast also includes Cameron Monaghan, »

In what will make a dozen films in the franchise since The Amityville Horror first hit theaters 35 years ago, the first trailer for Amityville: The Awakening has arrived. Since the reboot of the horror series back in 2005 starring Ryan Reynolds, there have been some straight-to-dvd sequels, but now the residential terror is heading back to theaters just after the New Year (a dumping ground for bad horror) thanks to Dimension Films. This time, Jennifer Jason Leigh is the matriarch of a family, including teen Bella Thorne and her bed-ridden, sick brother Cameron Monaghan, and they feel the evil in the house. Here's the first trailer for Franck Khalfoun's Amityville: The Awakening, originally from Yahoo: The Amityville: Awakening is written and directed by Franck Khalfoun (Maniac, P2). Jennifer Jason Leigh plays the single mother of three children, all settling into the infamous Suffolk County home which has seen so much horror before. »

We're not sure what's scarier, the true story of "The Amityville Horror," or the fact that the franchise has now spawned twelve movies, the last being 2013's straight-to-video "The Amityville Asylum." But now a new theatrical entry is coming to bring the classic series back on the big screen. Franck Khalfoun ("Maniac," "P2") gets behind the camera for this one, which rounds up Jennifer Jason Leigh (who deserves so much better), Cameron Monaghan, Bella Thorne and Red from "That '70s Show" (Kurtwood Smith) for the story of a single mom who moves into the house not knowing it has evil things in the walls. And so, drapes blow eerily in the wind, violins screech, weird things happen in the predictable manner they always do with this genre, and yet, people do like being scared silly even if they know its coming. "Amityville: The Awakening" rings in the New Year on January 2, 2015. Watch below. »

Do we really need another Amityville Horror movie? When news first broke that a new one was in the works, I’d say probably not, but now that our very first glimpse of Amityville: The Awakening is here, it actually looks like it has some potential. This rendition is led by Bella Thorne. Her character moves into the notorious Suffolk County, Long Island house with her mother and sister because her brother was in a terrible accident, is now in a coma and there’s a hospital in the area that has the best neurological department in the state. We’ve definitely got some genre clichés here, namely a moody teenager who doesn’t want to start over at a new school, some creepy dolls and a handful of jump scares, but even then, the first Amityville: The Awakening trailer is far better than I expected.

The first trailer for the latest reboot of the Amityville Horror franchise has arrived, this time with the title Amityville: The Awakening as we witness the story of a mother (Jennifer Jason Leigh) of three that moves into the Amityville house only to quickly learn of the darkness that lurks within. Dimension has set a January 2, 2015 release date for the picture, which isn't necessarily a sign of quality, but simply a sign their hoping to take advantage of that early year release slot that has proven to be a decent starting point for horror films as of late, most notably The Devil Inside, which brought in over $100 million worldwide back in 2012. Give the trailer a watch and let me know if you see the same kind of success in this film's future. Belle, her little sister, and her comatose twin brother move into a new house with their single »

Take the previous "Amityville" remake, reduce the budget and swap out Ryan Reynolds' super abs for a creepy kid hooked up to an Ekg and you've essentially got "Amityville: The Awakening," a revisiting of the franchise led by Jennifer Jason Leigh.
In this take there's no creepy dad to cause mayhem, instead it's a single mother and her kids (one with severe medical problems) who move into the haunted home. Cue glimpses of contortionists with bad skin and Kurtwood Smith assaulted by CG flies. Despite the lack of polish, it's still enjoyably creepy.
The new "Amityville" opens in the first weekend of next year - January 2nd 2015.
