With filmmakers having realized that anyone can make a movie with “Amityville” in the title, there has been a ridiculous number of Amityville movies released in recent years. At least writer/director Thomas J. Churchill doing something fun with the title with his upcoming movie The Amityville Moon: his entry in the Amityville “franchise” is a werewolf movie! Lionsgate will be giving the film an On Demand, Digital, Blu-ray, and DVD release on October 5th, and the trailer can be seen in the embed above.
Starring Alex Rinehart (Art of the Dead), Kelsey Zukowski (Axe to Grind), Trey McCurley (Crazy Bitches), Augie Duke (Bad Kids Go to Hell), David B. Meadows (Age of the Living Dead), Katarina Leigh Waters (Karate Kill), Sheri Davis (Angry Asian Murder Hornets), Cody Renee Cameron (Full Moon’s Corona Zombies and its sequels), and Tuesday Knight (A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master), The Amityville Moon has the following synopsis:
What if a house of holiness turned out to be a haven of evil? As Alyssa and Karla try to escape from the church home that holds them captive, Karla is slaughtered by a vicious, semi-human creature. After Detective Kimball tracks down Alyssa at a rowdy biker bar, she tells Kimball that women inmates disappear every full moon, and shows him the silver bullets in her gun. Now the two must return to the halfway house to confront the priest and nuns — and the snarling, savage evil — that dwell within.
The Amityville Moon clearly didn’t have much of a budget to work with, but the movie still looks like a crazy good time to me. Check out the trailer in the embed above, take a look at the poster artwork below, and see if The Amityville Moon looks like a movie you’d like to watch this Halloween season.
