PG-13 | | Horror, Thriller
A desperate single mother moves with her three children into the notorious, supposedly haunted, real-life Amityville house to try and use its dark powers to cure her comatose son. Things go horribly wrong.
The original plan for this reboot was "Amityville: The Lost Tapes." Written by Casey La Scala and Daniel Farrands and utilizing the found footage angle, the plot involved "an ambitious female television news intern, on the verge of breaking the most famous haunted house case in the world, who 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." After a couple of delays, this concept was eventually scrapped.
