Amityville Goes Online?

Amityville goes online? Why?Why anyone would want to sequelize the abysmal remake of The Amityville Horror (review) is beyond me, but at least it seems like those in charge are taking a page from the endless sequels to the original film and going the route of ridiculousness.

Bloody Disgusting learned today that MGM is looking to create a new chapter in the Amityville saga, one that will instantly ensure that the film is forever dated; they want a story focused on the internet and multimedia. Because if there’s one thing we all know works so well in horror, it’s films that have to do with the internet. Who can forget the classic terrors of Fear Dot Com, The Card Player or Cry Wolf?

Considering past Amityville sequels have dealt with haunted dollhouses, clocks and mirrors, I guess a haunted interwebs might be a step up ... but hopefully this project will fade into obscurity like it has the few other times Amityville sequel talk has surfaced. Since this is the worst idea yet, however, something tells me this is the one that’ll make it through.

He used it the other day when replying to something I said, so he knows where it is!

You missed the ever wonderful, the glorious, the exciting "Halloween: Resurrection" off your list... Oh, and "Hellraiser: Hellworld"!

You have got to be crazy kidding me!

I can't wait for the next one after this where the demon curse possesses a male stripper's leopard-print thong.
