For a film franchise with 18 entries, one would expect the Amityville series to have at least one good film. Yet, oddly enough, not even the original is good. It is alright, mainly because Margot Kidder (

I'm surprised who ever did the release dates still bothered about this; it wasn't worth it, despite the several failed releases.

There is absolutely nothing new in this version and shouldn't have never been filmed in the first place. These movies literally butcher the real Amityville horror story to the point where it's no longer interesting. Why are there so many movies of this story?

The Amityville films got more sequels than "The Nice Guys" and "Dredd".

Maybe the cast is bearable but the movie is a great swamp. No idea to revive the main theme. Hopeless effects and equally hopeless scenario. Unfortunately, I did not like it.

They're trying to bring back the series!

So the Amityville series continues. What this is like overall a tenth film. The last one was a decade ago. I'm okay with their idea of bringing it up. But there's nothing new in it. Only it was a different cast and timeline. So basically, you probably have seen this story in other flicks.

A family of a single mother with one child with a serious medical condition moves into the most popular haunted house, the Amityville. The other one, a teen girl discovers the rumours from her new schoolmates. But the mother won't heed to it, till unusual events begin to unfold. So how it all ends are the rest of the film.

The cast was good, and that's it, the film was average. If you are a big fan of horror, then this would be even a worse film, because you might have seen hundreds of similar flicks. I think Amityville franchise is dead, because of bad storied films. Otherwise with good filmmakers, particularly the writer, it could come back to the old glory. So now, it's not that worth. I would suggest to check it out other horrors released in this year.

5/10

First of all there's no 18 official entry as stated by misleading comments. Amiytivile The Awakening is in fact the 10th official entry. Amityville, part II, part 3D, part IV, The Curse, It's About Time, New Generation, Dollhouse, AmityvilleFirst of all there's no 18 official entry as stated by misleading comments. Amiytivile The Awakening is in fact the 10th official entry. Amityville, part II, part 3D, part IV, The Curse, It's About Time, New Generation, Dollhouse, Amityville reboot and then Amityville Awakening, later The Amityville Murders was added as a reboot of The Possessed (part II). All other movies labeled Amityville are just for take some money from the cashcow fans I'm afraid, nothing more. Didn't think you can add Amityville Asylum or other boring titles as Amityville Haunting in the franchise since they aren't.
Then back to the 10th entry, Amityville Awakening, the film is totally lost about how to establish himself. It's in the same time a sequel to the original, but other Amityville movies (1, 2 and reboot) are actually on DVD on screen in the movie, this made it a kind of Scream-like Amityville reboot. At the same time some parts are rebooting The Amityville II as a backstory. The film is a real mess. They have actually no idea of what they want to do with the film and this can easily be understood simply by just watching it. Cast of Bella Thorne and Jennifer Jason Leigh are both solid but this does not save the film. Frank Khalfou is actually a good director, his Maniac reboot is just amazing and P2 was a nice thriller, but he have totally miss the point on this one. Only Rob's original score is interesting and have a fresh approach to the franchise. Otherwise horror sequences was just boring and stupid, packed with jumpscare all around. With every scenes predictable and made as it was a direct to video title. It looks like a bad highly budgeted fanboy movie. Total waste of time and talents. This is maybe not the worst Amityville entry to date (thanks to The Amityville Curse) but this is without any doubts the most confusing.
