What in the hell are the Weinstien's thinking!? The classic 1979 horror film, The Amityville Horror which was remade in 2005 by Platinum Dunes and starred Ryan Reynolds is going to get remade a second time by the Weinstien Company and Dimension Films. It only been five freakin years since the first remake, and now it's already being remade again!? This is absolutely ridiculous. According to Bloody-Disgusting the film may even already have a director attached to it.

The original 1979 film is based on a true story that was claimed by writer Jay Anson, about a large house on the coast of Long Island where newly weds George and Kathy Lutz and their three children move into the house that they hope will be their dream house but it ends up in terror. Despite full disclosure by the real estate agent of the home's history, George and Kathy buy the house. George says, "Houses don't have memories," but they turn to their family priest Father Delaney who believes the house is haunted and performs an exorcism on the house. But the evil spirit in the house causes him to become blind and makes him very ill. George and Kathy with the help of another priest Father Bolen and a police detective they face the fears of the house, but not knowing the spirit is planning to possess George and then the children

Even if the film ultimately never gets made, it's crazy that anybody is even entertaining the idea of remaking it again. Its laughable that it has actually come to this. The Hollywood machine is increasingly getting worse and worse.

Care to tell Hollywood what you think of this idea? Rant about it below.
