It seems as if the devil will never let the Amityville property go. Yes, that’s right the Amityville franchise is being resurrected, again. In 2015, on January 2nd to be precise, Dimension Films will release Amityville. The title for the reboot of the horror franchise has been simplified and will no longer be called The Amityville Horror: The Lost Tapes. had details on the story of this Amityville horror tale. Stop reading if you have heard this before:

“Written and directed by Casey La Scala and Daniel Farrands, the latest entry in the horror franchise showcases the events after the time of the original The Amityville Horror book and movie through found footage dating back to 1976. An ambitious female television news intern, on the verge of breaking the most famous haunted house case in the world, 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.”

So again, nothing really new here and “found footage” to boot. If you can believe it, it has been almost 9 years since the Ryan Reynolds version bombed at the theater. Does this really excite anyone? Sound off below Maniacs!

According to wikipedia the Ryan Reynolds version grossed over 100 million and only cost 19 million.  I read it got bad reviews but I would hardly call that a bomb.

If the Reynolds remake sucked donkey flop, what makes them think this will do any better?

On a similar note, I recently watched The Conjuring on Netflix and I was pleasantly surprised by it.  I thought it really delivered and I'm a big Ron Livingston fan and Patrick Wilson is making a name for himself with these ghost story movies like The Conjuring and the two Insidious films.  Though I didn't think Insidious 2 was nearly as good as the first one.

Oh, boy. A "found footage" reboot of a franchise that was long past it's expiration date when the previous reboot was made. The next "Direct-to-DVD" sequel to the original franchise will be better than this.

 Nope and by "found footage" they actually mean a bunch a BS so they can attempt to cash in by making a cheesy sequal.  Yet another run-round sceeming at nothing, bad CGI FX..Aka Scifi Amityville themed Ghost Hunters.
