Were you looking forward to the new Amityville film? Too bad!

The Franck Khalfoun-directed sorta-sequel Amityville: The Awakening was due to hit theaters in a few months on January 2nd, 2015. The hype machine officially kicked into gear back in August when Dimension Films released the first trailer, and despite being a somewhat underwhelming first look, it managed to get a lot of people excited to enter the Amityville house once again. So why the delay?

Originally posted on Rhino's Horror:

Leigh Whannell goes into the further alone.

The next chapter in the Insidious franchise sees Leigh Whannell, who co-wrote and starred in the previous two films, take the helm now that James Wan has opted to use his talents outside of the realm of horror.

While it’s not the greatest, the art does display some very creepy text that warns of something living in the vents of your room.

MV5BMTMyNjczNDAzMF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMDg3MDc0MQ@@._V1._SX497_SY755_ All fans of horror films know that the anthology film is an important staple of the genre.  Films with titles like The House That Dripped Blood (1970), Tales From The Crypt (1972) and Creepshow (1982) are regular features in every horror fan’s list of must-see movies each October 31st.  In 2005, writer and director Michael Dougherty tackled his own offering with Trick ‘r Treat.  Despite it sitting on the shelf for two years, Trick ‘r Treat served up several new frights with a few interesting twists to give a boost to the creaky genre that is the horror anthology film.
