Franck Khalfoun will direct Logan Miller thriller Prey for Blumhouse

Franck Khalfoun, the director behind the MANIAC remake and P2, had a stroke of bad luck with his most recent feature, AMITYVILLE: THE AWAKENING , which has been struggling mightily to get a proper release. That ill-fated franchise picture has not diminished his capital with Blumhouse Productions, however, because the company (along with Hyde-Park Image Nation) are giving him another...

Amityville: The Awakening not dead, just consigned to January

Earlier this morning, we reported a rumor that AMITYVILLE: THE AWAKENING   was being canned, less than a month before its April 1st release date. And now, the truth: It's not being pulled from the schedule, just stretched on the calendar rack yet again. Apparently after looking at the finished film, producers decided to push the release date to January 6, 2017 ....

Has Amityville: The Awakening been pulled?

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...

Bella Thorne shares new Amityville: The Awakening poster

AMITYVILLE: THE AWAKENING , fresh from its new PG-13 rating, has premiered a new poster via star Bella Thorne's Instagram. It's actually kind of funny, considering that the original poster was designed to look like an Instagram post, but this Instagram post is a traditional poster. They're really working the teen angle here. The poster itself is fine, although it seems a...

Amityville: The Awakening has been edited to receive a PG-13

Last May , we heard that AMITYVILLE: THE AWAKENING had received its MPAA rating: an R for "strong horror violence and for language". At that time, the film didn't have a release date (after being pushed out of its original date of January 2015), but it is now scheduled to reach theatres on April 1 st, and when the poster promoting its release appeared online...

The new trailer for Amityville: The Awakening has moved in

In the wake of its mildly disappointing poster,  AMITYVILLE: THE AWAKENING has now released a mildly disappointing trailer! To be fair, it looks like this film has the production value of the past four or five AMITYVILLES combined, but the trailer is so generic you could use it to play Blumhouse Bingo. Ghostly apparitions centering around a creepy kid? Check. Creepy,...

Amityville: The Awakening debuts new poster; no longer rated R?

  I'm sure after over a year of delays, we're all a bit curious to finally get a look at Dimension's AMITYVILLE: THE AWAKENING . But this new poster isn't quite the new look we were hoping for.  Made up to look like an Instagram pic, the one-sheet is clearly aiming directly for the "kids," which indicates it might not be the return to Amityville horror hounds would have hoped for....

Amityville: The Awakening gets an April Fools release date

Maniac director Franck Khalfoun creates a deadly app in i-LIVED trailer

  Well now, where the hell has i-LIVED been? The film, which comes from Franck Khalfoun, the wild Frenchman behind the MANIAC remake and the upcoming AMITYVILLE: THE AWAKENING, was first announced over two years ago , but we've heard nary a peep since. Maybe because soon after said announcement, Khalfoun embarked on his AMITYVILLE odyssey, essentially purging i-LIVED from memory....

Franck Khalfoun's Amityville: The Awakening gets title change, MPAA rating

We've been stoked about MANIAC remake director Franck Khalfoun's AMITYVILLE: THE AWAKENING ever since first laying eyes on the trailer for the haunted house horror, and we were bummed when Dimension Films delayed the flick's release , from January 2, 2015 to a yet-to-be-determined date. Earlier this year producer Jason Blum gave us a small update on the Jennifer Jason...

Exclusive: Jason Blum provides an Amityville: The Awakening update

The first week of January was supposed to see the theatrical release of AMITYVILLE: THE AWAKENING , Franck Khalfoun's reboot of the classic horror franchise. But, as is sometimes the case with a movie being distributed by Dimension/The Weinstein Company, the film was suddenly pulled from its release date and sent into "TBD" purgatory. So what happened? I just snagged a little...
