From the Press Release
Producers are keeping the story under wraps, but we have gotten word that this will be a "found footage" film based on the Benson murders from the early 80's. Production is currently under way in Los Angeles.
Director Geoff Meed wrote in to let us know that although the characters' names are similar to the Benson murders (which was optioned by the original Amityville filmmakers back in 1986), there is No relation to the actual people or events in his upcoming film. Confusing? Yeah, just a little.
