Jennifer Jason Leigh in Trailer for Horror 'Amityville: The Awakening'
"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:
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 weinsteinco.com. Anyone?
