This film has seemed to get a bad rap of sorts, but I’m not about that. Amityville Awakening is a solid horror that will hit you with some jolts and chills. The plot of this Amityville is fairly self-aware. A single mother willingly and consciously moves into a haunted house with her three children and the hopes to use the possessed Amityville home to her favor in curing her comatose son. I enjoyed the new take on the franchise, it’s a clever twist that makes sense. Visually, it looks good. Bella Thorne stars in the lead and this is the kind of film and role she’s well suited to play. The Awakening has good enough scares and thrills that warrants it to be a worthwhile look.

Once upon a time I watched Monday Night Raw on Monday nights. By coincidence I ended up hooked on The Bachelor/Bachelorette. That lead to a Blog at Chicago Now called Bachelor Universe and a podcast of the same name. Now, I've decided to spread my wings and create this site that can be your Bachelor/Bachelorette destination. Aside from The Bachelor, in my personal life I'm a bachelor myself. Looking for the love of my life (not handing out many roses). I'm an avid animal lover. Have a rabbit and two turtles. I'm a film critic and co-founder of the Chicago Independent Film Critics Circle (CIFCC). Lover of sports. Currently residing in the suburbs of Chicago (my hometown).
