Very important update can be found here: I hope you’re sitting down for this little gem of a scoop… MGM is currently out to writers for a new AMITYVILLE HORROR film. The franchise will continue on as a direct-to-disc release, with more than one sequel planned. But here’s the kicker, MGM wants the story to be focused around multimedia and “the internet” (I’m not kidding, how lame is that?). Haven’t these ‘effin suits learned anything from THE MANGLER 2.0, STRANGELAND, CRY WOLF, STAY ALIVE, SCREAM 3, PULSE, FEAR DOT COM, among others? What do you guys think they should do with the next AMITYVILLE HORROR? For those of you who don’t know, in the original ’70s film, which is based on “supposed” true events, newlyweds move into a house where a murder was committed, and experience strange manifestations which drive them away.
