The original "based on a true story" horror story, 'The Amityville Horror,' inspired countless adaptations, sequels, prequels and remakes, including the 2005 version starring Ryan Reynolds. Now, after nearly a decade of silence, the franchise is back with the arrival of the 'Amityville: The Awakening' trailer, which moves Jennifer Jason Leigh and a handful of children into that evil haunted house.
The Amityville Horror
How many times has Hollywood gone to the 'Amityville Horror' well? Far too many times. At least ten, if you include the many sequels to the 1979 original and the 2005 remake with Ryan Reynolds. Of course, that's not including the numerous rinky-dink microbudget versions that have popped up over the years. Although a "reboot" is already in the works over at Miramax, it looks like it's going to have competition in a more "official" version.
