Broad Green Pictures Begins Production on ‘Amityville Horror’ Film Entitled ‘1974’

The Amityville Horror has had a difficult time at the multiplex lately. The 2005 remake somehow managed to earn nearly $22 million less than the 1979 original, and HNN’s Nick Banks recently chronicled the series of unfortunate events which have plagued The Weinstein Company’s Amityville: The Awakening (which is still unreleased to this day, despite an initial premiere date of January, 2015). Despite the brief glimmer of hope in the form of a brief appearance in Warner Bros.’ successful film, The Conjuring 2, interest in the “true story” franchise appears to be at an all time low. With the release of Amityville: The Awakening looming somewhere out there on the horizon, Broad Green Pictures has decided to take a different approach to the famous horror story: Deadline reports that the studio is preparing a film called 1974, which will focus more heavily on the real life murders which triggered (or inspired, based on your opinion of the case) the classic ghost story. read more

Our Thoughts: Clown takes what would seem to be a ridiculous premise and creates a horrific tale that is both disturbing and tragic.
