After suffering though numerous delays, Amityville: The Awakening managed to sneak into very limited release and will survive mostly on home viewing (whether physical or streaming). I would like to think the film would have had a decent conventional release, if it had been released as originally planned, but instead it will be mostly forgotten - though I think they went with the smarter approach at this time, as things could have wound up like The Disappointments Room with a wide release that amounted to nothing.

Here's a little trivia you probably didn't know:
This movie was meant to be release on January 27, 2012, January 3, 2014, January 2, 2015, April 1, 2016, April 15, 2016, January 6, 2017 and June 30, 2017. It finally got a limited theatrical release on October 28, 2017, but instead went for a Blu-ray and DVD release.

There is absolutely nothing new in this version and shouldn't have never been filmed in the first place. These movies literally butcher the real Amityville horror story to the point where it's no longer interesting. Why are there so many movies of this story?
The Amityville films got more sequels than "The Nice Guys" and "Dredd".
