This has got to stop already. All these Amityville movies that have nothing to do with the real Amityville story are getting tiresome. I bet residents who live in Amityville just love the continuation of the Amityville movie franchise. :(

I would much rather see a movie that is about the real story and the real people (whoever is still alive)behind the story.

My friend spotted the amityville haunting film in a second hand DVD store.
She was going to buy it and asked me if it was any good, I told her:
'I don't usually judge a DVD by its cover but I won't touch that one because it looks awful.'
It is better to return a borrowed pot with a little something you last cooked in it.

Hm don't really know what to think yet.
How is this story connected to TAH? There were obviously a reference to the Defeo shooting at the end though.

Watched the trailer for this the other night... looks... horrible.

Then again, aside from My Amityville Horror, all of the "Amityville" movies being made are horrible. A lot of people dislike Dollhouse, but even I enjoyed THAT one a bit. But these "movies" are just plain trash.

Can we atleast get a movie with a house that actually LOOKS like the house? At least give me one reason to want to watch bad acting, writing and directing. lol
Gonna go make me some Sugar Cookie Stew! Yum yum!

It must be extremely bad in terms of violence and gore to receive an 18 certificate. So many older 18 movies receive the lower 15 category when re-certified.

The Amityville Asylum To Open Stateside

The latest UK import, The Amityville Asylum, has landed itself US/Canada distribution, and we've got all the details you need to get committed right here. If only this could come out at exactly 3:15 AM. How cool would THAT be?

From the Press Release
US distributor Hannover House has acquired North American distribution rights to the independent horror film The Amityville Asylum.

The film focuses on cleaner Lisa Templeton, who experiences supernatural occurrences and intimidation from dangerous patients while working the night shift at a mental institution in Amityville. The film was written, produced, and directed by Welsh filmmaker Andrew Jones. The cast includes Eileen Daly (Razor Blade Smile), Jared Morgan (Vengeance Day), and Sophia Del Pizzo (Lovely Monster). Robert Graham of Independent Moving Pictures served as executive producer. The UK distribution rights have previously been acquired by 4Digital Media, who recently gave the film a limited theatrical release in UK cinemas. MIG Film Group picked up the distribution rights in Germany.

Hannover House is a full service media company, specializing in the production and distribution of feature films onto the DVD format for the North American retail marketplace. Formed in 1993, Hannover House concentrated its activities exclusively in the literary, book-publishing industries until 2003, when the company entered into the DVD marketplace. Now, with over 70 DVD titles in active distribution, Hannover House has quickly ascended to a dominant role as a leading independent distributor of DVDs. The company is particularly noted for its successes in placing DVD titles within mass merchandisers and key chain stores in North America.

North Bank Entertainment is a Wales-based production company that has become one of the most prolific producers of low budget horror films in the UK. They currently produce up to three feature films per year, in collaboration with financiers Independent Moving Pictures, for distribution in the home entertainment marketplace. The company’s next venture will be the production of two feature films, shooting back to back from October to December this year, The Midnight Horror Show and Valley of the Witch.

The deal for The Amityville Asylum was negotiated by North Bank’s Andrew Jones and Eric Parkinson of Hannover House. The film will receive a multi-platform release in North America and Canada later this year.

Writer, producer, and director Andrew Jones said: “We are delighted to be teaming up with Hannover House to bring The Amityville Asylum to North American audiences. Hannover is a great company with a strong track record in the North American marketplace so we are thrilled to be collaborating with them on this film. In the past year North Bank has secured eight distribution deals for three completed horror titles so it‘s a great testament to all involved in our productions that we are consistently producing low budget films with domestic and international appeal.”

Synopsis
Lisa Templeton begins a new job as a cleaner at High Hopes Hospital, a mental institution in Amityville, Long Island. Initially delighted to get the job, Lisa soon realizes that all is not as it seems. Intimidated by staff and the psychotic ramblings of the patients, she is further unnerved by apparent supernatural occurrences on the night shift. To preserve her sanity, Lisa must uncover the mysterious history of the institution and its inmates. But the truth is far more terrifying than she could ever imagine.

Seven-country distribution deal for Swansea horror film director Andrew Jones

A HORROR film director from Swansea has secured distribution deals in seven countries for his latest movie.

Andrew Jones, who owns North Bank Entertainment, filmed The Amityville Asylum in the city and in Carmarthen.

He not only directed but wrote and produced the movie – which has secured distribution in the UK, Ireland, Germany, North America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

"The release of The Amityville Asylum in seven countries around the world is a great testament to the hard work of the team at North Bank Entertainment," said Andrew.

"It proves that low budgets and limited resources are no obstacle when you have the determination to succeed."

The Amityville Asylum focuses on a cleaner who experiences supernatural occurrences while working the night shift at a mental institution.

It was filmed over four weeks at the start of this year, with the final cut wrapped by the end of April.

"It wasn't really hard work, doing all of it myself," said Andrew. "If anything it was easier because I didn't have to consult with anyone else. I could just get on with it.

"It wasn't the first film I'd directed — I did a couple of dramas a few years ago — but this is the first one that will be widely released."

The Amityville Asylum will be released on DVD and digital download on September 23.

Ok so I watched this movie the other night, and even tho I am not Siskel or Ebert, I will say that this movie is much better than I was anticipating it to be. I will admit the acting was bad, and for a place that's supposed to be haunted, the ghost scenes were not that great....but for the budget that this movie was produced at, knowing its not a Hollywood produced movie, it actually is a decent movie. The only thing that kind of annoyed me tho is that there were too many british actors for a movie that's supposed to take place in Amityville.

Another thing that bothered me was some of the factual errors, such as the address of the house. Everyone who knows anything about Amityville knows the address is now 108...not 112. Maybe the address was supposed to be changed back for the movie, who knows.....one other thing that bothered me is altho yes the Amityville house is a big house, there is no way a mental institution of the size the one portrayed in the movie could fit on that property.

In conclusion, altho there were some things that bothered me about the movie, I give it a 7 out of 10 for the storyline alone

Surely they could come up with better actors even though it's not a Hollywood product.

I'm sure they kept it at 112 out of respect for the current owners...

About the only half-decent horror film I've seen made in the last couple of decades is "House of the Devil". Everything today is over-the-top CGI-laden rubbish, torture porn, and "found footage" nonsense.

About the address - while the address may now be 108, if you do a Google maps search for "112 Ocean Avenue, Amityville, NY", it takes you right to the house in question.
