Has Amityville: The Awakening been pulled?

03.08.2016by: Brennan Klein

Another scrap has fallen off the ceaselessly grinding rumor mill around AMITYVILLE: THE AWAKENING. Currently, Dread Central is reporting that the Weinsteins have officially cancelled the film's upcoming April 1st release. Maybe this is all just an elaborate April Fool's joke?

It's a shame if this rumor comes to fruition, because as frustrating as the idea of a fourteenth AMITYVILLE film is, the trailers at least made it look like a generically efficient flick rather than a low budget monstrosity. Not to mention, that cast ain't messing around. Even if it ends up sucking, it deserves a shot. As soon as any sort of official announcement is made, you'll be the first to know!

The plot was:

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.

The film was directed by Franck Khalfoun and stars Jennifer Jason Leigh, Bella Thorne, McKenna Grace, Cameron Monaghan, Kurtwood Smith, Taylor Spreitler, Thomas Mann, and Jennifer Morrison.

Can't we have a worthy movie instead?

This movie feels more direct to DVD/VOD (despite Jennifer Jason Leigh) which could be an OK beer and pizza flick one Sat night, yet if they invested in proper adult, intelligent horror movie they could could have a hit. I'd rather that than another horror dud at the box office to potentially hurt future horror being released theatrically.

Hopefully it gets pulled forever, I mean what were they thinking???

These movies either need to be direct to hulu/netflix or not released at all. There was no way this movie would make a dime at the box office.
