Amityville: The Reawakening finally gets a new release date, as does Viral


UPDATE: It would appear as though the title is back to AMITYVILLE: THE AWAKENING. Blumhouse's official Twitter page made the announcement mere minutes ago.

It looks like we finally know when AMITYVILLE: THE REAWAKENING (formerly known as AMITYVILLE: THE AWAKENING; an important change there) is coming out. It was originally supposed to hit theaters this past January, but it was pulled from the schedule back in September. Producer Jason Blum told us they were just trying to "make it better," which led to some post-production tinkering. Seems as though they've nailed it down, as the horror reboot will now come out on April 15, 2016.

Directed by Franck Khalfoun and starring Jennifer Jason Leigh and Bella Thorne, AMITYVILLE: THE REAWAKENING goes like this:

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.

Blumhouse revealed another release date for one of their upcoming thrillers, VIRAL. The horror offering, from PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 3 and 4 directors Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost, will open on February 19, 2016 (that's a Friday). Starring Analeigh Tipton and Sofia Black-D'Elia, VIRAL focuses on...

 Emma Drakeford, who begins a video documentary about her life for a school project. Everything goes crazy when a terrifying virus sweeps through her small town, turning her friends and neighbors into vicious monsters. Quarantined with her family, Emma believes they are out of harm’s way but when the contagion finally infiltrates their home Emma and her family are faced with an impossible decision – if someone you love becomes a threat, do you kill them in cold blood or save them at the risk of your own life?
