Remember that chatter a few months ago about a new ‘found footage’ Amityville film? Well, it’s now got a release date, not to mention a new title. Formerly titled The Amityville Horror: The Lost Tapes, the film has now been labelled simply Amityville and will hit on 2nd January, 2015. The film will be written and directed by Casey La Scala and Daniel Farrands.
Not content with the whole ‘Amityville’ events having been covered in several films, TV specials, reboots and sequels, this time out we get a look at the action through the ever-diminishing ‘found footage’ approach. The story centres around a female television news intern who leads a team in an investigation into the whole ‘Amityville’ phenomena. Of course, this type of shit can never be simple. Cue ominous music.
Dimension Films are handling this latest incarnation of the Amityville series.
