Y’all remember The Amityville Horror right? The excellent film that documented the terrifying case of a notoriously haunted house? Well, Amityville Uprising isn’t part of that film franchise. It does however use the town name of Amityville. You won’t find any haunted houses here though. Instead, you will find a town that has been turned to zombies.
This time around, a disaster leads to toxic acid rain. Of course, the rain turns the townsfolk into a bunch of zombies. We kind of miss the haunted houses part of the original franchise.
The synopsis for Amityville Uprising goes like this:
“A chemical blast at a military base sets off a supernatural disaster in this tense action horror thriller. As Sgt. Dash tries to keep the peace at the local police station, the explosion unleashes a toxic acid rain that dissolves the flesh of anyone trapped in it. Even worse, it causes the dead to rise again and attack the living. Can Dash and fellow officer Nina Rossi figure out who is friend and foe, fend off the attacks, and defend their colleagues until the savage cataclysm subsides?”
Scott C. Roe, Tank Jones and Alysha Young all star.
Amityville Uprising arrives on Digital, via Demand and DVD January 11, 2021.
