This spring, the long-running AMITYVILLE HORROR franchise is slated to rise again with the premiere of AMITYVILLE: THE AWAKENING.
Written and directed by Franck Khalfoun (MANIAC) and produced by our own Jason Blum, the new installment stars SCREAM series actress Bella Thorne, THE HATEFUL EIGHT’s Jennifer Jason Leigh and GOTHAM’s Cameron Monahan… and now the first poster has been released from the production, in a tweet from Marie Claire magazine. The pic reveals the movie’s eerie poster art, naturally focusing on the iconic horror house with its recognizable “eye windows” restored and glowing from an unknown diabolical source.
Thorne plays a teenager who begins to suspect that her mother is hiding a dark secret about their new home (apparently none of the characters got the memo about the house’s infamous reputation), and the promo artwork cleverly frames the image as if it were part of the character’s Instagram post.
AMITYVILLE: THE AWAKENING hits theaters on April 16. Stay tuned for more updates… but for now, check out the trailer:
