Amityville: The Awakening – Trailer

112 Ocean Avenue continues to welcome new residents in Amityville: The Awakening. This time around, the poor fools are single mom Joan (Jennifer Jason Leigh) and her three kids: pouty Belle (Bella Thorne), cutesy Juliet (McKenna Grace), and coma-struck James (Cameron Monaghan).

As always, the family starts out optimistic about their new place. It’s near some excellent medical facilities, all the better to treat James’s illness. Then, as always, bizarre things start happening…

Amityville: The Awakening is the twelfth installment in the Amityville franchise, and the first to open in theatres since 2005. (The last two entries went straight to video.) Only time will tell whether this one successfully revives the franchise, but so far, Jennifer Jason Leigh apart, it looks fairly average.
