"Amityville Horror" Remake Gets Title, Plot and Release Date

Posted: May 11th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Amityville Horror" Remake Gets Title, Plot and Release DateSubmit Comment
Hannibal Classics has announced plans to develop a new "Amityville Horror" movie, which will be called "The Amityville Legacy 3D." It will be based on John G. Jones' "Amityville: The Evil Escapes" book and is being adapted by Andrew Helm and Steve B. Harris. A director has yet to be hired, but shooting is expected to begin this fall for an October 2012 release.

Full "The Amityville Legacy 3D" plot synopsis from press release:

Six priests enter an abandoned home in the middle of an intense thunderstorm. The leader of the group, Father Manfred, quiets the doubting Father Kibbler, the youngest priest. The priests separate and Kibbler follows the sound of laughter into the attic. Inside, flies swarm by the the iconic windows of the Amityville house. The door slams shut and an unseen demon claws at Kibbler. Manfred kicks open the door and battles the demon until it consumes him in fire. The attic erupts but the demon is vanquished -- contained in a weak, but still-alive Manfred.

Thirty years later, we meet Nancy and Michael Evans and their daughter Amanda, a happy family recently touched by tragedy. Nancy's sister Carolyn committed suicide, leaving Nancy and Michael to care for her kids, Brian and Jessica. The Evans family is in the process of moving from the city to live in Carolyn's suburban home, where Nancy hopes to bond with Brian and Jessica. Michael plans to fix up the house, sell it, and move the family back to the city.

Before they settle into the home, the friction between Michael and Jessica threatens to splinter the family. Very soon after their arrival, Nancy begins to sense a palpable, evil presence. She can't seem to sleep through the night due to mysterious and horrifying noises. Their family cat is found in the attic -- dead. Slaughtered. Worse, as a family unit, they have a hard time meshing with Brian and Jessica. Michael becomes consumed with renovating the house, and hires a couple of hard-partying locals, Ant and Sean, to help him. But they are afraid to go in the attic. They know what happened in there.

As Michael's passion turns to obsession, Nancy struggles with her very sanity. She's coming apart at the seams, unhinged by the evil presence that only she seems to feel. She knows it will stop at nothing to get them out of the house. When she finds some letters Carolyn wrote to Father Manfred and Father Kibbler she makes a startling discovery -- Carolyn went through the same thing. Unable to track down Manfred, she locates Kibbler -- but he offers her no help. He is no longer a priest, and only communicated with Carolyn because Manfred no longer could. She begs him to help her find Manfred, and Kibbler finally admits the truth: Manfred is in an insane asylum.

Nancy goes to see Father Manfred and convinces him to help her vanquish the evil spirit. Michael's erratic behavior intensifies as the hauntings escalate, culminating in a horrific attack on one of Jessica's friends and the mysterious disappearance of a local delivery man. And it soon becomes clear that Michael is building an exact replica of the Amityville house. Nancy finally convinces Kibbler and Father Manfred to put aside their bad blood and help her fight the evil spirit and cast it from the house.

But if they think the spirit will go quietly or that they even know the source of its strength, they have another thing coming.

Didn't read this book. Only read the original and the first sequel (which was alright).

I say, just stick with the original; it's the only one that matters.

So this is a remake of Amityville 4: The Evil Escapes?? (Even though the synopsis doesn't sound anything like it from what I remember.)

The Jay Anson book is crap, and the entire Amityville episode never happened.

Would this be a good time to mention that the original Amityville Horror story was a hoax, admitted by George and Kathy Lutz? There never was a haunting.

I don't know about that Margot Kidder haunts me...

The Lutzes never admitted to hoaxing the story, and in fact they passed a lie detector test, but it was in fact William Weber, Ronald DeFeo's defense attorney, who claimed the story was made up over a bottle of wine (very, very likely). The most George Lutz would ever say is that most of the book's claims are based on actual events. Most.

Also, the story originated quite quickly after the 1973 film The Exorcist, and the Amityville Horror contiains many elements of that film.

Didn't Brolin say he wasn't sure if Lutz's story was true.

Maybe he's been cursed and he has to live with Barbra Streisand for Eternity and beyond !!
