Third Amityville reboot finally gets a release date

See also

Earlier today it was announced by producer Dimension Films that the umpteenth installment of the Amityville franchise, simply titled Amityville, will be unleashed upon the general public on January 2, 2015. The new version has promised to be a reboot of the franchise…equipped with that already time-weary trope that no modern horror film can do without: found-footage shaky-cam. This will be the third reboot in the franchise, and the eleventh film if you include straight-to-video releases.

Originally titled Amityville: The Lost Tapes, producers have opted for the far classier Amityville. Probably a good idea, as there are two other Amityville-themed films that have recently announced that they are in production. These do not include The Amityville Asylum, which hits theaters this January 7. Amityville will be written by Daniel Farrands and Casey La Scala. The Internet Movie DataBase’s plot summary of the upcoming film is as follows:

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.

Amityville will come to D.C. theaters on January 2, 2013. No news yet on the scope of the release, so the district’s citizens will have to hope and pray that this blessed gem will head to one of our local cinemas. For more information on the film, keep checking Dimension Films’ website.
