The Amityville Curse, a film based on the novel of the same title by Hans Holzer, has been released through the Tubi streaming service
There’s another Amityville movie to watch! And this one actually has some connection to the early days of the franchise. These days it seems like every indie filmmaker in the world has made something with Amityville in the title, but the new film The Amityville Curse is based on the novel of the same title, which was written by Hans Holzer. Holzer was a parapsychologist who invested the supposedly haunted house in Amityville in the ’70s and went on to write the books Murder in Amityville (which served as a source of inspiration for Amityville II: The Possession), The Secret of Amityville, and yes, The Amityville Curse. The new adaptation of Holzer’s work has been released through the Tubi streaming service as a Tubi Original – and you can check out the trailer for it in the embed above.
This is actually the second movie to be called The Amityville Curse. Another version, loosely based on the Holzer novel, was released in 1990. According to Tubi, The new adaptation of Hans Holzer’s novel is a modern take on the ever popular franchise with a fictionalized story that remains true to the novel. Here’s the synopsis: A group of friends purchase an infamous home with the intention of flipping it, only to discover a deadly paranormal presence bent on destruction.
The new take on The Amityville Curse was directed by Éric Tessier (You Will Remember Me) from a screenplay by Dennis Heaton. Brendan Fehr, Ennis Esmer, Jenny Raven, Dillon Casey, Mercedes Morris, Vanessa Smythe, Tommie-Amber Pirie, Michael Xavier, Felicia Shulman, Jennifer Miller, and Kenny Wong star.
Holzer’s daughter Alexandra Holzer executive produced the film with Graham Ludlow, Kaleigh Kavanagh, Brook Peters, and Shari Segal. Alexandra Holzer was involved with the production because she wanted to pay “tribute to continuing the authenticity and legacy of her father’s work.”
The Amityville Curse is a collaboration between Tubi and Incendo. The companies previously worked together on the Terror Train remake.
