When it comes to horror franchises that just won’t die, the Amityville series is right up there.

We’ve had sequels, 3D versions and reboots, and the truth is I can’t actually remember a good one (although the Part 2 entry was pretty useful if I remember rightly).

Anyways, here we go again with yet another offering, entitled Amityville: The Awakening, which look as though it wants to dial everything back in reboot fashion.

The plot seems based around youngster Belle (Bella Thorn) and her family, which include mother (Jennifer Jason Leigh) and very sick brother James (Cameron Monaghan).

For healthcare reasons, they end up moving into the Amityville house, but, as we all know, that is never going to be a good thing.

Also starring the likes of Kurtwood Smith, Amityville: The Awakening is set for a January 2015 release.
