Amityville: The Awakening Trailer


Dimension Films have released the first Amityville: The Awakening trailer, providing a look at the latest chapter in the franchise that has been going on and on since The Amityville Horror spooked audiences back in 1979. Amityville: The Awakening marks the 12th (!) entry in the franchise, which you’d only know if you were a true Amityville aficionado (many have been straight-to-video releases). While the first film told of a newlywed couple moving into a house where a murder was committed, and the strange manifestations that follow, this chapter in the “true events” series follows a single mother who moves in with her three children. There are plenty of clichés on offer here, but we’re digging the fact that one of these young adults lies in a coma. It’s certainly a tired series, but this trailer actually isn’t too bad, with more than enough creepy shenanigans on display to keep us interested. We’ll see…

Starring Bella Thorne, Cameron Monaghan, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Thomas Mann and Mckenna Grace.

ETA: USA – 2 January, 2015.
