What it's about:

Belle, her little sister, and her comatose twin brother move into a new house with their single mother Joan in order to save money to help pay for her brother's expensive healthcare. But when strange phenomena begin to occur in the house including the miraculous recovery of her brother, Belle begins to suspect her Mother isn't telling her everything and soon realises they just moved into the infamous Amityville house.

What the critics thought:

The script is just as lazy as the acting, leaning on a fitfully applied, Scream-esque meta subplot to justify why the hell we're all here in the first place. - Katie Rife, AV Club

The Awakening often feels as if it's starting all over again from scene to scene, drinking in Belle as she wanders one shadowy corridor after another. - Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine

Amityville: The Awakening has a good cast, and, if viewed by a group of rowdy friends late at night, may certainly do its due diligence in periodically startling you for 87 minutes. - Witney Seibold, IGN Movies

Feels half baked and woefully under developed. - Felix Vasquez Jr. , Cinema Crazed
