There have been countless Amityville themed & inspired movies, sequels, reboots, knock-offs, so on and so forth. And with the sudden resurgence of spooky-filled haunted house thrillers kicked off by the Paranormal Activity franchise and continued with the success of Insidious and The Conjuring, it was only a matter of time before a major studio returned to the one that started them all! Amityville Horror!
Amityville: The Awakening, this Weinstein Company “official” sequel/reboot has been in the works for quite a long time. So much so that the Asylum beat them to the punch with their found-footage style Amity-rip-off The Amityville Haunting back in 2012 when this was originially slated to come out. But alas, they waited for the right script and director, dropped the tired found-footage again (thankfully) and are ready to unleash the evil of this infamous house in January of 2015! And here’s the first trailer!

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.
