Finally completing the full-dozen reboot mark, Bloomhouse Productions released the first trailer of “Amityville: The Awakening,” and they are offering up loads of terror and disturbing premises with actors Bella Thorne, Cameron Monaghan, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Taylor Spreitler and Thomas Mann under the direction of Franck Khalfoun. Read on to know more about the latest movie reboot.

As far as common sense is concerned, you wouldn’t really move in towards a new house that has a bloody and mysterious past. But we all know how horror movies work. In the recently released trailer of the reboot of “Amityville: The Awakening,” you will be put into a whole new level of scares as Bloomhouse Productions leveled up the horrific elements of the film.


The movie basically revolves around a family of four who are moving in to a new house (the very familiar house) that bears a very tragic and gory past. Unbeknownst to the family and hoping for a fresh start, they unpack their worries into this new home. The mother, Joan (Jennifer Jason Leigh), overcomes having to face her defiant teenager, Belle (Bella Thorne), who was very against their transfer, her younger and active little girl, Julie (McKenna Grace), and her bed-ridden, unconscious son, James (Cameron Monaghan), who is under a serious coma that experts are continuing to examine but are showing no signs of improvement. Everything seemed normal for a family looking for a fresh start. However, it all changed when they started seeing and hearing things that are slowly ripping them from their logical minds.

The trailer starts off in what seemed like a teenage-angst-driven movie with the way Belle shows how their move caused her so much disappointment. You shall then see a shot of Joan explaining that they did what they had to do so that her unconscious brother, James, could get the proper and specialized treatment he deserves. The haunting then begins in a series of instant flashes and quick sound effects that will make you cringe or jump the moment the notes fall. It is then backed with a rapid sequence of disturbing shots. Director Franck Khalfoun surely knows what he is doing as he upholds his manifold skill in delivering a prolific horror flick. According to Screen Rant, his prowess was traced back during his collaboration with writer/producer Alexadre Aja in the film “P2” and the remake of “Maniac.”

“The Amittyville Horror,” as published on First Showing, was first released in the theaters about 35 years ago, and sequels and reboots of it were created after a few years and so on. This reboot will be one of the films that will welcome you in the New Year as it will be released on Jan. 2, 2015.

That ends our scoop on the first trailer of “Amityville: The Awakening.” Continue to check out Movie News Guide (MNG) for more updates in the entertainment scene.
