According to Coming Soon, Dimension Films has reserved January 2, 2015 as the official release date for the next installment in the Amityville Horror franchise. Simply titled Amityville, this latest chapter will be a found footage movie that looks to shed more light on the classic horror series. Here is a short synopsis of what you can expect from the movie:

An ambitious female television news intern, on the verge of breaking the most famous haunted house case in the world, leads a team of journalists, clergymen and paranormal researchers into an investigation of the bizarre events that will come to be known as The Amityville Horror, only to unwittingly open a door to the unreal that she may never be able to close.

Amityville was going under the working title The Amityville Horror: The Lost Tapes for a while, but this simplified name suggests that the producers are looking to distance this installment from the others. We'll find out how far Amityville strays from the original when we get our first glimpse at footage in the coming months.
