Looks like 2016 will be the year of Amityville with not one, but two new movie projects set to hit theaters this year.
The first one is Amityville: The Awakening, Franck Khalfoun’s (High Tension, Maniac) upcoming take (it's either a sequel/remake/prequel, no one seems to know for sure) on the evil Long Island house that managed to scare the crap out of me in my youth. The movie stars Jennifer Jason Leigh (The Hateful Eight), Bella Thorne (Scream: The TV Series) and Cameron Monaghan (Gotham).
The second one is titled Amityville Terror, and it comes from a much smaller studio. That’s the one of interest here.
Directed by Michael Angelo (that’s a very artsy name) and written by Amanda Barton, Amityville Terror stars relative unknowns Nicole Tompkins, Kaiwi Lyman, Kim Nielsen, Amanda Barton and Tonya Kay. The horror movie comes from from Uncork'd Entertainment, and we have a few new stills of the upcoming horror film, as well as a synopsis.
When a new family moves to an old house in Amityville, they are tormented and tortured by an evil spirit living in their house, and trapped by the malicious townspeople who want to keep them there.
There's nothing like being trapped in a house with an evil spirit inside, I tell you. Good times. Check out the new pics below and let us know what you think. Amityville Terror will open sometime in 2016.
