You can’t take a leak in the Sahara without pissing all over someone’s “found footage” movie. These things are all over the place right now, thanks in part to the success of the “Paranormal Activity” franchise. The Asylum’s upcoming endeavor “The Amityville Haunting” looks like every other like-minded production currently on the market. It doesn’t look nearly as inept as I had anticipated, though you really don’t have to be a master of the craft to execute one of these things. No intended offense to those involved with the project, of course. I’m just saying.

“The Amityville Haunting” scares up some direct-to-video business on December 13th, 2011. The trailer, meanwhile, has been carefully embedded below.

Todd was raised on a steady diet of Hollywood blockbusters, late-night Cinemax programming, and USA’s “Up All Night,” which may explain why his taste in movies is more than a little questionable. When he isn’t providing news and reviews for Beyond Hollywood, he can be found lounging lazily on his couch, perched in front of his television, or dwelling in places where direct sunlight can be easily avoided. He's happily married, in his 30's, and totally badass. If you'd like to reach Todd, you can follow him on Twitter or send him email/scoops to todd (at)

    Says something about the genre as a whole that even the Asylum can make a pretty decent looking entry, doesn’t it?

      I’d say so. The fact that so many people are doing it now is a testament to how easy it is to put something like this together.

        The PA films have essentially primed audiences to expect shoddy acting, poor production values, and a wandering plot, with a major Third Act pay-off. If you can deliver those, you’ve got yourself a found footage movie, it seems.
