There has been some slight rumblings in the movie news department concerning the latest film in the Amityville series. After dropping a fantastic trailer last winter Amityville: The Awakening quickly disappeared from the release schedule. Originally it was due to hit theaters this past January but reshoots and schedule conflicts delayed it indefinitely. Things might be moving along though. We noticed this week that The Motion Picture Association of America has released their latest ratings bulletin and something interesting caught our eye.
Amityville: The Awakening has been retitled to Amityville: The Reawakening.
Meh. I liked the original title better, but this isn’t too bad. Seems pointless really since the words are so similar. Anyway, the other news was that the movie has been slapped with an R-rating, which to me is a VERY good sign. PG-13 rated horror films are rarely scary, and this one apparently has “strong violence”. YAY for violence!
I mean…ok you know what I mean.
The bad news is there is STILL no release date for this movie. Maybe they are shooting for Halloween, which makes sense but I don’t want to wait that long. Who is going to think about my needs?
