Just to point out, this isn’t another new Amityville film in the long list of upcoming films, this one is simply The Amityville Horror: The Lost Tapes, which is now being aptly titled Amityville. So, where does this one fit in the franchise? Well, apparently this one takes place after the events of the original book and movie, but I’m pretty sure it’s in the found-footage style, although I could be wrong.
If you’re after more Amityville, you’re in luck as Dimension Films have just announced that their film Amityville, will be hitting this January 2, 2015. Yep, It’s still very far away, but are you guys stoked for another?
From the Press Release:
Dimension Films has set a January 2, 2015 release date for their upcoming Amityville (previously titled The Amityville Horror: The Lost Tapes).
Written and directed by Casey La Scala and Daniel Farrands, the latest entry in the horror franchise showcases the events after the time of the original The Amityville Horror book and movie through found footage dating back to 1976. An ambitious female television news intern, on the verge of breaking the most famous haunted house case in the world, leads a team of journalists, clergymen and paranormal researchers into an investigation of the bizarre events that will come to be known as “The Amityville Horror”… only to unwittingly open a door to the unreal that she may never be able to close.
The new release date makes Amityville the first major release of 2015 as well as the first film to claim that particular release date.
