The original plan for this reboot was "Amityville: The Lost Tapes." Written by Casey La Scala and Daniel Farrands and utilizing the found footage angle, the plot involved "an ambitious female television news intern, on the verge of breaking the most famous haunted house case in the world, who leads a team of journalists, clergymen and paranormal researchers into an investigation of the bizarre events that will come to be known as The Amityville Horror, only to unwittingly open a door to the unreal that she may never be able to close." After a couple of delays, this concept was eventually scrapped. See more »
This movie was set in 2014, but Belle's username in the movie poster in Instagram-style says she is '99. However, in the movie it's mentioned she's 17 which would mean she was born in '97. See more »
Why do they remake these movies when its already been done many times before except this time its 40 years on yawwwwwnnnnn
There is absolutely nothing new in this version; as expected and its far worse than anything that came before , James Brolin version was the best and was just copied ...badly.
Funny on IMDb the first few pages of reviews are; almost always . obviously IMDb shills paid by the film producers to give good reviews - i always skip to the last few pages where you get the real reviews, you can always tell the shills they either have only one review under their belts or registered around the time the movie was finished production!
Don't bother with this movie its just another clone of a poor clone and doesn't give anything new to the haunted house genre which is already played out anyway.
