(Cbr) Mummy movies used to be all the rage back in the day, with Universal Pictures and Hammer Films each having its own franchise (the former resurrected its property in 1999, and plans to do so again). Director Grégory Levasseur’s found-footage horror fillm The Pyramid marks a new chapter in the subgenre, as a group of archaeologists explores a newly unearthed pyramid that houses a murderous monster. It’s the directorial debut of Levasseur, who wrote the remakes of The Hills Have Eyes and Maniac, as well as P2 and High Tension. Here’s the film’s synopsis: The ancient wonders of the world have long cursed explorers who’ve dared to uncover their secrets. But a team of U.S. archaeologists gets more than they bargained for when they discover a lost pyramid unlike any other in the Egyptian desert. As they unlock the horrific secrets buried within, they »

Has any real-life story spawned more TV shows and feature films than the one behind The Amityville Horror? Jay Anson's book recounting the story of a family that moves into a house previously occupied by a man who murdered his own family has directly led to 13 feature films, including the documentary My Amityville Horror featuring the real Daniel Lutz who lived in the house as a child. It's been referenced all over TV, from The Simpsons to American Horror Story, and its theatrical influence can be felt from 1980's The Changeling to 2012's Sinister. And as if that weren't enough, now the story has evolved once again for a new generation in the form of Amityville: The Awakening. Directed by Franck Khalfoun (Maniac, P2), this new version stars...

You can’t keep a cursed house down. Still boasting that it’s “based on a true story” (maybe, maybe not), the latest “Amityville” movie, titled “Amityville: The Awakening,” gets a PG-13 rating and a new teen star in Disney princess Bella Throne. Okay, so I don’t know if the film is officially PG-13, but it seems like it to me from this first trailer. I mean, just about every shock scene here turns out to be a vision of some kind, which is kind of lame, but hey, after 50 “Amityville” movies, I guess that’s just how it is now. Take a look at the first trailer for “P2″ and “Maniac” director Franck Khalfoun’s latest contribution to the never-say-die horror series. It all looks shockingly generic and teeny-bopper-ish. The scariest thing here is Thorne wearing goth make-up. Belle, her little sister, and her comatose twin brother »
Horror writer Gregory Levasseur, who co-wrote The Hills Have Eyes and Maniac remake, as well as P2 and High Tension along with Alexandre Aja, is now getting behind the camera for The Pyramid, which is set to debut this December. Today, we have the exclusive poster debut for the horror film from 20th Century Fox, which gives us our first taste of the marketing for the film. Simple, creepy, and enticing. Take a look: Here's the synopsis: A team of U.S. archaeologists »

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. But when strange phenomena begin to occur in the house including the miraculous recovery of her brother, Belle begins to suspect her Mother isn't telling her everything and soon realizes they just moved into the infamous Amityville house. 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.

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. »

35 years after the horror classic The Amityville Horror and ten years since the 2005 remake starring Ryan Reynolds and Melissa George, Dimension Films are giving one of the original "based on a true story" horror movies another go with next year's Amityville: The Awakening, directed by Franck Khalfoun (Maniac, P2) and starring Jennifer Jason Leigh, Cameron Monaghan and Bella Thorne.
This will be the 12th film in the series--many of them, including the last two, The Amityville Haunting and The Amityville Asylum, having gone direct-to-dvd--but Dimension Films has released the first trailer for the film via Yahoo! Movies which you can check out below.

Bloody-Disgusting confirmed the news, revealing that the plot centers on Jennifer Jason Leigh's character, a single mother who moves her three children into the infamous Amityville house, which they later learn has a dark history.

After seven sequels, a remake, several unauthorized spin-offs and a handful of documentaries, it was announced a few years back that the Amityville Horror franchise would continue with The Amityville Horror: The Lost Tapes, a found footage flick that was originally set for release in 2012. All talks of the film quickly vanished, and it wasn't until earlier this year that we learned the project was still on the ole chopping block, and had been renamed Amityville. Now, a director has moved in.
Over the weekend, Bloody Disgusting broke the exclusive news that Franck Khalfoun will be sitting in the director's chair for the film, which is being produced by Blumhouse Productions, for Dimension Films. Though you may not know the name, Khalfoun is the guy who directed 2012's incredibly impressive remake of Maniac, and he had previously directed a film called P2, back in 2007.
