Last June, after Amityville: The Awakening had been postponed for the 6th time in as many years, I vowed to quit reporting/promoting the film that had become the dick-tease of the horror world. I advised fans to give up on ever seeing it. Alas, the Amityville fan in me can’t ignore rumblings that the film we’ve been clamoring for and hoping to see for over half a decade is finally being released. No, really this time.
Bloody Disgusting is reporting that Amityville: The Awakening will arrive for a limited time on Google Play beginning on October 12th; this will be followed by a limited theatrical release beginning on October 28th. Will it actually come to fruition this time? I want to believe! Have a look at the trailer and synopsis for Amityville: The Awakening below.
Official Synopsis: A single mother (Jennifer Jason Leigh) moves into a new home with her three children, but the miraculous recovery of her previously comatose teenage son (Cameron Monaghan) leads to a series of sinister events that leave the frightened family fighting for their lives. Bella Thorne and Kurtwood Smith co-star.
