The classic horror franchise, The Amityville Horror, is getting a fresh new look with the announcement of a 4K release this fall from Scream Factory. The remake, starring Ryan Reynolds, will come with new special features and previously released content, including a new 4K scan from the original negative and a featurette on the film’s making. The movie, which tells the story of a young family moving into a haunted house in Amityville, New York, is a staple of the horror genre, and its 1979 original remains a beloved classic.

The 4K/Blu-ray Collector’s Edition combo pack will also include previously released special features such as “The Source Of Evil” – Making The Amityville Horror, a Scare Reel, Home Movies, and an audio commentary with Reynolds and producers Andrew Form and Brad Fuller. Fans who pre-order through Scream Factory’s website will receive an exclusive poster featuring Reynolds staring down the iconic house with a shotgun in his hand.

The remake, which was released during Hollywood’s remake craze, was met with harsh criticism from fans and critics, but given the modern context of the series, it may have been unfairly judged. Reynolds delivers a serious and refreshing performance, and the film also features Chloë Grace Moretz in one of her early roles, showcasing her talent as a young actress.

The horror genre is replete with haunted house movies, but The Amityville Horror stands apart as a classic that has shaped the modern familial ghost story. The new 4K release offers fans a chance to revisit the remake and judge it on its own merit, rather than through the lens of a crowded marketplace. The film is currently streaming on Hulu and Amazon Prime Video, making it easily accessible to fans.
