It was about a year and a half ago that we saw the first trailer for Amityville: The Awakening, which would bring the long-running horror franchise back to the big screen after a decade away. But its marketing push ended almost as quickly as it began, when Dimension Films suddenly yanked it off its 2015 release calendar.

Oscar nominee Jennifer Jason Leigh plays single mom Joan, who’s feeling really good about the new home she’s just moved into with her three kids.

Unfortunately, it also happens to bear the address 112 Ocean Avenue, which horror fans will recognize as the setting of The Amityville Horror. Bella Thorne stars as Joan’s daughter Belle, who was cranky about the move even before the family realized they’d set up shop inside a horrifying murder house.
