    Yep. Still looks mediocre even after 5 years of delay. Not even blood or gore could save this Turkey.

  • Khy

    Well that looks much better than I thought. I was expecting frankenstein’s monster after all the reshooting and editing they supposedly did.

    I’ll check it out. But boy do those two actors playing the “best friends” suck. They seemed tacked on.

      Khy – what is your new avatar of?

      • Khy

        My two favorite characters and coupling- Dizzee and Thor- from the sadly now canceled Netflix show- The Get Down.

  • Alanmac

    Looks like an Amityville movie I’d be asleepening through.

  • I was wondering if this would be a sequel to the original, a sequel to the remake, or just another reboot. I hate when studios keep that ambiguous when they release another entry in a long-running franchise.

    Way too much CGI. PG-13. This movie is for Tweens.

  • CalUni

    Great director so I will watch on the strength of that plus Jason Leigh is always an asset.

    • MeeGhoulz

      Love her! Can’t believe she looks so fine after all these years… I used to watch her movies late at night as a kid! And I’m almost 40…

  • Simon Allen

    This looks fucking worse than it did before …ooooohhh a window moves on its own ……oooooohh a creepy kid ….ooohhhhh flies in the vicars mouth ……ooooohhhh Bella Thorne as the most fake looking Goth EVER !
    Amityville Awakening …..the movie they literally gave away .

  • Nefferson Taveira


    It’s not a sequel. At some point, a character shows the DVDs of the original and the remake, with some meta-ish humor, and that’s it.

    I thought it would be terrible, but it’s just bad.

    • Forca84

      Oh god! That sounds awful!!

    • Nicolas Caiveau

      What ?? O__o So it’s not a sequel to either the original, nor the remake ? Damn ! It’s supposed to take place “in the real world” I suppose -_-

      • Brett Janovich

        It is a sequel it ties into it just it takes place in reality where the films are only films but tales place at the real house

        • Nicolas Caiveau

          Ok. I can accept that…

  • BreeBennett

    I watched this on sunday. It’s nothing spectacular, but not that bad, it’s an average movie.

  • I remember seeing a trailer for this over 3 years ago. Still looks godawful.

  • DirkShadows

    The feel of the film and that poster art harken back to the days when a new Amityville sequel would turn up in the video rental shops on almost a weekly basis, so I’m on board for nostalgia reasons alone. Jody the Pig even makes a cameo appearance!

  • Evan3

    Just curious. I’ve heard Bella Thorne’s name a lot and obviously, they are leaning into her “fame” pretty heavily. But can anyone tell me what she is famous for?

  • ThenxD9

    lots of scenes that are in the trailer aren’t in the actual movie

    • Brett Janovich

      Actually they are

  • J. Erickson

    She is dead gorgeous though 😀

  • Kat Alex

    Wasn’t this supposed to come out like four years ago? That’s DEFINITELY a good sign. lol

  • Brett Janovich

    I already seen it and I fucking love it Best film I’ve ever seen I rate it 10 stars I love it 🙂

  • Kyle Cole

    Watched this last night and I really liked it! My only complaint is that it wasn’t as scary as i hoped it would be. Good casting also.

  • EvilResident

    I really really liked this. There was only one scene of noticeable CGI but I’d put the movie as second best in the series behind The Possession. The ‘twist’, if you can call it that, actually made the movie much more interesting to me. I don’t want to spoil it, but for those who’ve seen it, I’m talking about the talk between the mother and daughter about God. I’m purposely being really really vague.

    If you’re into the series, give it a watch. I’m EXTREMELY curious to know what was changed between the original cut and this one.
