I really don’t have a clue what is going on here and I reckon that director Franck Khalfoun probably doesn’t either. The 18th [yes, 18th – and I’ve only so far seen the first three!] film in the Amityville Horror series seems to be cursed and I wonder now if we’re going to ever see the thing at all – or at least in a state resembling the original cut of and conception for the film. It’s been re-edited, re-shot and its release date continually pushed back. Finally, it really seemed like it was going to come out on January 6th next year…..but now comes the news that the film has been pushed back yet again, and that it could be three years before the film is actually released!
Why, we don’t know. The other websites who have reported this puzzling news don’t say any more about this and it seems like Dimension Films are being very secretive. Who knows what is really happening? All this might make a good film, a film that at this rate we stand more chance of seeing than Amityville: The Awakening itself.
Belle, her little sister, and her comatose twin brother move into a new house with their single mother Joan in order to save money to help pay for her brother’s expensive healthcare. But when strange phenomena begin to occur in the house including the miraculous recovery of her brother, Belle begins to suspect her Mother isn’t telling her everything and soon realizes they just moved into the infamous Amityville house.
Amityville: The Awakening is written and directed by Franck Khalfoun and stars Bella Thorne, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Cameron Monaghan, Thomas Mann, Taylor Spreitler, Mckenna Grace, and Kurtwood Smith.
