The revival of the series was supposed to happen in 2012 with a found-footage film titled Amityville: The Lost Tapes. However, plans were scrapped and Amityville: The Awakening was created in 2014. While the film was planned to come out in 2015, it faced numerous delays, which pushed it back to be finally released in 2017.
