The Weinstein Company’s Amityville: The Awakening grosses just $742 in North America

After being pushed back on numerous occasions, the horror film Amityville: The Awakening finally made its way into U.S. theaters on Saturday, marking The Weinstein Company’s first release since the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse scandal broke.

The film, which has sat on the shelf since 2015 and was released for free on Google Play earlier this month, grossed a paltry $742 from 10 locations, putting it 59th in the weekend box office ranking with a per-screen-average of just $74, one of the lowest ever recorded. For comparison, Jigsaw opened with a per-screen-average of $5,525, while The Square managed $38,000 per screen from its two locations.

Amityville: The Awakening Review

For a long-pushed, unceremoniously dropped – straight to Google Play to watch for Free – 2017 reboot-a-ma-jig, Amityville: The Awakening sure is brazenly confident. Like, beyond pure existence. I’m all for revamping franchises in new and chilling ways, but to shade other Amityville entries without first proving your own merit? That’s exactly what happens when Thomas Mann’s draped-in-black horror devotee asks which Amityville film should be watched from inside 112 Ocean Avenue. “Remakes totally blow,” spouts his goth-punk friend. Hey – at least 2005’s The Amityville Horror features Ryan Reynolds chopping wood shirtless and in longjohns. Which is more than this generic Kidz-Bop mess of redundant haunter misfires has to offer.

Bella Thorne stars as Belle Walker, a damn-the-world transplant now inhabiting the famed Amityville manor where Ronnie DeFeo Jr. murdered his family – but she doesn’t know it. Mother Joan (Jennifer Jason Leigh) claims she scored a killer deal on a

First Amityville: Awakening Clip Arrives, Release Date Announced
After years of delays, Amityville: The Awakening is finally getting a release. For real this time. The movie has been shifted around on the release calendar four different times, which is rarely a good sign for any movie. Especially a low-budget horror movie such as this. In any case, this will provide horror fans with something new to watch this Halloween season. The good part? The movie will be available to stream for free on Google Play.

According to Deadline, Amityville: The Awakening will be streaming for free exclusively on Google Play from October 12 to November 8. The movie is also being given a limited theatrical release starting on October 28, for those who are looking for something to watch during the Halloween weekend. That should help the studio recover some of the money they invested in this modern take on the Amityville Horror franchise, but in many ways, they seem to

Amityville: The Awakening Creeps Out Of Hiding With First Clip; Horror Pic To Release Via Google Play Next Month

Every house may have a history, but when it comes to 112 Ocean Avenue, it’s imbued with horror and hearsay.

We are, of course, referring to Amityville, New York’s most famous haunted house first depicted in Jay Anson’s 1977 book of the same name. Fast forward 40 years and 112 Ocean Avenue continues to be a point of fixation for Hollywood suits, given Amityville: The Awakening is all set to become the 19th (!) film based on the horror saga and the first to see a theatrical release since 2005, so there’s quite a lot riding on The Awakening.

Directed by Franck Khalfoun, Amityville: The Awakening keeps things on the straight and narrow by centering on a young woman, Belle (Bella Thorne), who takes up residence in a new home only to find that it’s haunted by a strange, inexplicable phenomenon. Cue the jump-scares and shrill music.

Watch: Steve Buscemi Gives Guidance in First Clip from Andrew Haigh’s ‘Lean on Pete’

Following his stellar drama 45 Years, Andrew Haigh is back on the festival circuit with Lean on Pete, an adaptation of Willy Vlautin’s novel of the same title. One of our most-anticipated fall festival premieres, it recently debuted at Venice and ahead of our review, we have the first clip. Charlie Plummer stars as Charley Thompson, a fifteen-year-old who takes a summer job with a washed-up horse trainer and befriends a horse. With a cast also including Chloë Sevigny, Steve Buscemi, Steve Zahn, and Thomas Mann, A24 is expected to release the film next year.

Lean On Pete by Willy Vlautin is a wonderfully humane novel. It is a story of a kid that refuses to lose hope or heart despite the harsh realities of his world,” Haigh says in a director’s statement. “I found it immensely moving, tender and yet never sentimental. I wanted the film to have the same sense of purity.

'Some Freaks': Fantasia Review

An affecting debut for anyone who has dwelled on the far outskirts of adolescent social life, Ian MacAllister McDonald's Some Freaks captures high school/college agony without transmuting it into thank-God-we-survived-it nostalgia. Starring Thomas Mann (lead in the tragically underseen Me and Earl and the Dying Girl) and charismatic relative newcomer Lily Mae Harrington, the picture centers on misfits struggling to understand whether their "flaws" are things to overcome or essential to their identities. Neil Labute's appearance as an exec-producer will tell prospective viewers something about the film's willingness to grapple with cruelty in intimate settings. But McDonald never delights in...

Kong: Skull Island 3-D

Kong is back, transformed into a ‘MonsteVerse’ colossus suitable for combat with Kaiju-sized foes. The key inspiration is video games but the day is saved by capable performers in mostly amusing roles. Even though the show treats its fantasy halfway seriously, it’s still an infantile guns ‘n’ monsters romp, embellished with impressive visual effects.

Thomas Mann in Trailer for Indie Relationship Drama 'Some Freaks'

"They only see what you want them to see." Good Deed Entertainment has debuted the official trailer for an indie relationship drama titled Some Freaks, starring Thomas Mann from Me and Earl and the Dying Girl. The story is about a high schooler named Matt with only one eye, who falls in love with an overweight girl named Jill, played by Lily Mae Harrington. There's two major parts to the story - once she goes off to college, she loses weight and apparently Matt doesn't feel the same about her. The cast includes Ely Henry, Marin Ireland, Lachlan Buchanan, Nikki Massoud, and Ryan Boudreau. This already played at a few film festivals last year (including Fantasia and Rhode Island) and will be hitting limited Us theaters + VOD later this summer. This film actually looks pretty good - full-on indie quirk, might be worth watching. Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Ian MacAllister McDonald's Some Freaks, direct from YouTube: Follows one-eyed ...

Amityville: The Awakening Quietly Retreats From Summer Release Date

Had things panned out differently, 2017 would have been a year long remembered for horror revivals – for better or worse.

Twice delayed, F. Javier Gutiérrez and Tsutomu Hanabusa’s Rings movie crawled its way onto the big screen back in February and was, quite frankly, dead on arrival. Lionsgate’s Saw: Legacy, meanwhile, (or should that be Jigsaw?) will hope to sidestep those creative pitfalls this October with a dark new chapter in the twisted story of one John Kramer.

And that’s before you even factor in Paramount’s long-in-development Friday the 13th reboot. Not unlike the aforementioned Rings, the Jason Voorhees origin story has been beset with production woes from the get-go – so much so, in fact, that production purportedly shut down earlier this year to lend those writers involved enough time to whip the screenplay into shape.

That brings us to another of 2017’s potential horror pics: Amityville: The Awakening.

That's why I want to talk about a low profile movie called It’s Kind Of A Funny Story.
