AMITYVILLE: THE AWAKENING:
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.
