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.
Comingsoon.net 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!
