A newly released international trailer for Amityville: The Awakening, the first theatrically released Amityville film since 2005’s Amityville Horror remake, hit Instagram on Tuesday, featuring some new, terrifying footage and a better look at the family about to be terrorized by the infamous Amityville house.
The official synopsis for the film from The Weinstein Company is:
Belle, her little sister, and her comatose twin brother move into a new house with their single mother Joan in order to save money to help pay for her brother’s expensive healthcare. But when strange phenomena begin to occur in the house including the miraculous recovery of her brother, Belle begins to suspect her Mother isn’t telling her everything and soon realizes they just moved into the infamous Amityville house.
Belle (Bella Thorne) learns of the Amityville house haunting from some new friends at school in the international trailer, one of whom insists nothing has happened in the house in 40 years — Belle’s family will probably be fine. Her other friend, though, points out that 40 years is a significant time in the Bible, quoting Judges 3:11, “And the land had peace for 40 years,” adding that “maybe the evil only latches on every 40 years.”
How convenient for Belle’s family.
Also included in the international trailer is an extended look at Mckenna Grace’s (Gifted) Juliet, who seems to be playing the role of a terrified but appropriately frightening child, and Cameron Monaghan’s James, Belle’s twin brother, who seems to be more paralyzed than comatose, as the synopsis describes.
Oh, and there will be plenty of flies, bleeding black walls, and a cameo from the Red Room.
Amityville: The Awakening premieres in theaters on June 30.
