Amityville: The Awakening Trailer

"Somethings not right in here… I keep seeing things, hearing things…" "It's not you, it's the house." The Weinstein Company has debuted the first trailer for Franck Khalfoun's Amityville: The Awakening, a "revival of the popular franchise and a modern twist on the classic horror film." It's pretty much an updated, creepy take on Amityville with a story involving a single mother moving into the haunted house with two daughters and a son with an injury that has left him in a coma. Oscar nominated actress Jennifer Jason Leigh stars, along with Bella Thorne, Cameron Monaghan and Thomas Mann as well as Kurtwood Smith. I like the poster a bit more than I like the trailer, but this kind of horror freaks me out. Fire it up.

Here's the first trailer (+ poster) for Franck Khalfoun's Amityville: The Awakening, found on YouTube:

Amityville: The Awakening

In the film, Belle and her family move into a new house, but when strange phenomena begin to occur in the house, 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 both written and directed by French filmmaker Franck Khalfoun (of Maniac, P2 previously) and produced by groundbreaking and top horror producer Jason Blum of Blumhouse Productions (of films like The Purge, Insidious, Paranormal Activity previously). The Weinstein Company will release this new take on Amityville: The Awakening, after being delayed from early 2015, in theaters starting April 1st. For more updates visit Anyone?

  • How many more times will they make the same movie over and over and over and over...again. Looks like a good cast tho!

    I tend to find horror movies are the easiest film genre to make look great in a trailer.. I am impressed by this but ultimately feel it'll be another huge letdown
  • ZigZagWave
    Why the fuck are there 12 of these Amityville movies???
    I really dislike that Instagram poster..."TotesMarissa"??? Really...

      I think its ok

        Yeah, it is just going to be so dated so fast. It's kind of lazy of the PR people instead of working on something that would be timeless. BUT, this kind of film hardly merits so much work, so...yeah.
        • OfficialJab
          Different for me maybe because I didn't know looking at it that it's instagram since I've never used it. I just saw it as a general 'social media' styled one.

    So much for a post Tarantino film career boost for Leigh, eh?
  • Brustbaer
    All I see is the young Joker at the dinner table with his dysfunctional family :-)

  • ff
    It practically writes itself!
  • well this looks okay and that's a surprise for me because how many times they used the Amityville story? I will give it a chance... Tip:watch the canal. It's a great movie and would like to know what other people think of it.
