Amityville: The Awakening Censored for PG-13
Amityville is a term that horror fans have come across many times already as it is somewhat of a synonym for haunted house horror plots - released both theatrically and direct-to-video. The newest entry of the franchise is Amityville: The Awakening and the poter already teases that a younger and modern audience is the target.
That doesn't fit too well with the "R" rating that the US ratings board MPAA gave the film for strong horror violence and for language. Obviousl, The Weinstein Company is of the same opinion and the consequence is that they submitted the movie a second time - now in a censored PG-13 version that got its rating for disturbing horror violence and terror, suggestive images, brief language and thematic material.
It's going to be interesting if the film really profits from that strategy. The confidence in the product doesn't seem to be too high as its planned release date on April 1st, 2016 was pushed to January 6th, 2017 just a few days ago. That will also postpone the answer to the question whether the uncensored version will eventually end up on Blu-ray.
