The scary film formerly called 'The Amityville Horror: The Lost Tapes' will feature found footage that showcases the events after the original book and movie.
"Amityville", a reboot of a horror movie about a haunted house in Amityville, New York, has booked a release date. The movie formerly titled "The Amityville Horror: The Lost Tapes" is confirmed to haunt theaters in the United States starting January 2, 2015.
Written and directed by Casey La Scala and Daniel Farrands, the remake will show the events after the original "Amityville Horror" book and movie through found footage dating back to 1976. Jason Blum (Insidious, "The Purge", "The Conjuring") is on board as producer.
It will follow an ambitious female television news intern who, 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.
