It seems that every few months we're hit with another tale of terror based around the iconic horror tale THE AMITYVILLE HORROR. From the recent Asylum entry THE AMITYVILLE HAUNTING to the festival hit documentary MY AMITYVILLE HORROR and even the upcoming THE AMITYVILLE LEGACY 3-D, there certainly isn't a shortage of new fright flicks revolving around the events that transpired at 112 Ocean Avenue on the south shore of Long Island. Today we have a look at the poster and some stills from British director Andrew Jones's addition to the Amityville mythos, THE AMITYVILLE ASYLUM.
Lisa Templeton begins a new job as a cleaner at High Hopes Hospital, a mental institution in Amityville, Long Island. Initially delighted to get the job, Lisa soon realises that all is not as it seems. Intimidated by staff and the psychotic ramblings of the patients, she is further unnerved by apparent supernatural occurrences on the night shift. To preserve her sanity, Lisa must uncover the mysterious history of the institution and its inmates. But the truth is far more terrifying than she could ever imagine.
The cast includes Sophia Del Pizzo (Lovely Monster), Lee Bane (Night of the Living Dead: Resurrection), Eileen Daly (Razor Blade Smile), Paul Kelleher (Night of the Demon), Jared Morgan (Vengeance Day) and Sarah Louise Madison ("Doctor Who").
Look for the first trailer and news on the films distribution in February.
