Another Amityville Movie? Really?

19 August 2011 5:41 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Okay, kids! For those of you keeping track, here's the tally thus far: We reported earlier that there are currently three Amityville projects under way. We know for certain that at least one of them is getting made. The other two? Not so much. How about a fourth?

According to Bloody Disgusting a fourth one is already casting for a shoot in Los Angeles, Amityville Haunting.

Before we get to that, let's look at the various other projects in the works.

Dimension Films is developing an official sequel, The Amityville Tapes, with directors Casey La Scala and Daniel Farrands. We can happily confirm that this one is rock solid. Film Regions International is working on My Amityville Horror, Eric Walter's documentary about the infamous Amityville Murders that will set the record straight with the help of Daniel Lutz, the eldest son of George and Kathleen Lutz. And then there's Amityville: The Legacy 3D, »

Amityville Gets A New Legacy

12 May 2011 5:01 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Thinkin' they won't? Goddammit, they will. Following eight original instalments and a 2005 remake with Ryan Reynolds, Hannibal Classics have just announced yet another Amityville Horror, this time in the form of The Amityville Legacy 3D.This one stems from the novel Amityville: The Evil Escapes by John G Jones, who wrote a number of continuations following Jay Anson's franchise-founding original book. It's already been the basis for two other films in the series, the TV movie The Evil Escapes, and 1992's Dtv It's About Time.Thankfully, we can rest assured that Legacy will not revolve around a possessed lamp, with Hannibal's lengthy (and spoilerific) synopsis describing six priests performing a traumatic exorcism, before the story flashes forward thirty years, and the unsuspecting Evans family move in to the house on the hill (y'all). You can probably infer the rest."The Amityville Legacy 3D reinvigorates a classic franchise with astonishing scares, »

The storyline follows Nancy and Michael Evans, a couple touched by a family tragedy when Nancy's sister Carolyn committed suicide, leaving them to look after her kids. Moving into Carolyn's suburban home to fix it up and then sell it, Nancy begins to sense an evil presence, »

Evil Escapes in Amityville: The Legacy 3D

10 May 2011 3:53 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

The Amityville Horror, for better or for worse, is one of the single most famous ghost stories of our lifetime, and it's for that very reason that filmmakers keep going to the well to try and make a good movie surrounding the perplexing mythos surrounding the case.

With several new projects bearing the Amityville moniker in various states of production, it's getting harder and harder to weed out which ones we're most excited for.

Another new one has popped up at Cannes - Amityville: The Legacy 3D which is based upon Amityville: The Evil Escapes (which was also the title of the crappy 1989 made-for-tv movie) by John G. Jones.

Hannibal Classics is the company behind this latest project; however, adding to the mystery of the Amityville canon, it's unclear as of yet whether or not Hannibal has secured the rights to make an Amityville film so we wouldn't count on »

The Latest 'Amityville' Project Tells 'The Legacy' in 3-D

10 May 2011 2:49 PM, PDT | bloody-disgusting.com | See recent Bloody-Disgusting.com news »

All of these competing Amityville Horror projects have me extremely confused. From what I understand, there are rights to the book and rights to the actual story as told by George Lutz. Therefore, it's hard for me to understand who actually controls these rights, especially since there's already The Amityville Tapes stuck at MGM and the documentary My Amityville Horror in production. Adding to that list is Hannibal Classics' Amityville: The Legacy 3D, which is a feature film based on the book "Amityville: The Evil Escapes" (also the title of the 1989 made-for-tv movie) by John G. Jones. My guess is Hannibal owns the rights to this book specifically? Adapted by Andrew Helm and Steve B. Harris, the film is said to be going into production this coming September, even though a director has yet to be attached. »
