While The Amityville Horror used to be a genuine movie franchise, the floodgates have more recently opened up for pretty much anyone and everyone to make a movie with “Amityville” in the title. This has led to films including the zombie movie Amityville Uprising, werewolf movie The Amityville Moon, and yes, even shark attack movie Amityville Shark House.
Up next? Amityville in Space, which will be releasing July 19, 2022.
“From Wild Eye Releasing, pack your bags for a frightening intergalactic stay at Amityville.”
“The ultimate battle against the Amityville curse begins after the infamous murder house is exorcised from Earth and reappears in outer space in Amityville in Space.”
From director Mark Polonia (Sharkula), this one stars Titus Himmelberger, Cassandra Hayes, Tim Hatch, Ryan Dalton and Jeff Kirkendall.
Watch the brand new trailer below, which is truly no-budget-bonkers…
Spawned from a real-life horror and based on the novel by Jay Anson, the original The Amityville Horror movie was released in 1979, followed by a series of sequels throughout the 80s and 90s including Amityville II: The Possession, Amityville 3D, Amityville: It’s About Time, and Amityville Dollhouse. In 2005, Ryan Reynolds starred in an official remake of the original classic, and more recently, Franck Khalfoun directed Amityville: The Awakening. Pretty much every other “Amityville” movie, however, isn’t actually part of any legitimate franchise.
The past ten years alone have seen the release of unofficial films including The Amityville Playhouse, The Amityville Legacy, Amityville Island, and even… Amityville Vibrator?! Yeah.
