La La La La La La La (puts fingers in ears and yells that really loud). But now why am I being so juvenile and refusing to hear something? Oh – that’s because yet another ‘evil possession’ movie is set to be unleashed upon the horror masses and I honestly don’t want to hear about it. But wait….what’s this? The trailer actually looks good? And it’s written and directed by Frank Khalfoun? Ok ok……I’m listening.
One of the godfather’s of all possession movies is 1979’s The Amityville Horror, and it’s spawned more than enough sequels, prequels and documentaries over the years (my personal favorite being Amityville II: The Possession). And now we have another to throw into that mix called Amityville: The Awakening.
As mentioned previously, it’s written and directed by Frank Khalfoun (Maniac) and stars Jennifer Jason Leigh, Bella Thorne, Mckenna Grace, and Cameron Monaghan. Focusing on the story of a mother and her three children who move into the infamous Amityville house…..wait a minute — why in the hell are they moving into that house? I’m sure they got it for cheap since murders occurred there and supernatural entities call it home, but is saving a little cash worth all of the demonic fuss? To make matters worse, the son is in a coma and weird shit starts happening. Don’t believe me? Check out the somewhat impressive trailer and get ready for Amityville: The Awakening on January 2, 2015.
