‘Amityville’ Trailer: Cinema’s Most Famous Haunted House Awakens…Again

The original “based on a true story” horror story, ‘The Amityville Horror,’ inspired countless adaptations, sequels, prequels and remakes, including the 2005 version starring Ryan Reynolds. Now, after nearly a decade of silence, the franchise is back with the arrival of the ‘Amityville: The Awakening’ trailer, which moves Jennifer Jason Leigh and a handful of children into that evil haunted house.

The film seems to function as a catch-all sequel to every entry that came before it, with the ‘Amityville’ trailer showing how the action moves to the modern day and the token local-guy-who-can-explain-the-history-to-the-new-characters in the form of a creepy high school student. The big twist this time around, though, is that the family living in the titular house has a severely ill son whose condition is made, well, more interesting by the demonic presence.

We’re suckers for a good haunted house movie, and ‘Amityville’ looks competent enough. We know that not every genre entry is going to be ‘The Conjuring‘ or even ‘Insidious,’ but if this can provide a few decent scares, we’ll give it the time of day. Plus, there’s the return of Jennifer Jason Leigh from wherever she’s been!

‘Amityville: The Awakening’ is scheduled for release on January 2, 2015, a date that’s proven reliable for horror movies.
