On April 15th, 20th Century Fox will take you back to the house....
Yes, the Amityville Horror remake is coming to our big screens next month, and a new (second) trailer has now gone online at www.apple.com (see below for other options of you're not a Quicktime fan).
It's not a bad looking trailer from the Michael Bay produced (Texas Chainsaw Massacre) flick and could prove to be interesting, with several impressive spooky shots. The house does seem to have very strange, almost sad looking, eyes rather than the 'evil' appearance of the original, which is a little disappointing. Or, maybe I'm just nit-picking.
The film stars Jimmy Bennett, Ryan Reynolds, Melissa George, Chloe Grace Moretz, Philip Baker Hall and Jesse James and is the product of first-time director Andrew Douglas.
Synopsis On November 14, 1974, police received a frantic phone call that led them to a nightmarish crime scene at the Defeo residence in Amityville, Long Island - an entire family had been slaughtered in their beds.
In the days that followed, Ronald Defeo confessed to methodically shooting his parents and four siblings while they slept, claiming "voices" in the house drove him to commit the grisly murders.
One year later, George and Kathy Lutz and their three children moved into the house thinking it would be their dream home. 28 days after moving in, the Lutzes were lucky to escape with their lives.
25th Oct 04 Fires blaze uncontrollably as smoke billows from damaged buildings while sirens wail indiscriminately over the screams of the living as they run for their lives, pursued at break-neck pace by the recently deceased.
