It all began in 1977. Drawn from the paranormal experiences of the Lutz family, the original book The Amityville Horror by Jay Anson spawned a franchise of films that have frightened generations.
Amityville: The Awakening will be the fourteenth in line, following on from Amityville Playhouse, which was released last year. The movie will star Bella Thorne, Cameron Monaghan and Jennifer Jason Lee.
