The long-delayed tenth installment in the Amityville Horror series, "Amityville: Awakening," flopped in its one-day Theatrical Release, earning only $742 from 10 movie theaters in its US release.

After several years of delay -- the film was originally slated for release in January 2015 -- the Weinstein Company announced Sept. 21 that the film would be released for free on Google Play from Oct. 12 to Nov. 8, and that it would only show in theaters Oct. 28, according to Variety. DVD and Blu-Ray for the film is set for release on Nov.

14.

In addition to multiple delays, the marketing campaign stopped long before the film was released, according to SlashFilm. "Amityville: Awakening" was released across parts of Europe and Latin America between July and September, grossing more than $3,280,000 internationally, according to The Numbers. It earned more than $1,475,000 in Russia, where it was released on July 21.

Previous iterations in the series have earned more than $100 million at the box office, according to New York Daily News.

Problems at the Weinstein Company

The horror film is the first released in the United States by the Weinstein Company since the New York Times broke the story Oct. 5 that producer and founder Harvey Weinstein sexually assaulted women in the film industry for decades. TWC fired Weinstein on Oct. 8. Since the article’s publication, more than 80 women have publicly accused Weinstein of sexual harassment, assault, and rape.

Ongoing series

The Amityville horror series centers around the infamous site of the Amityville murders, which took place in a home in Amityville, New York in 1974. The site was supposedly the scene of an ancient Indian burial ground. All ten films in the series involve families moving into the home and experiencing a haunting, as well as a series of terrifying events that begin at 3:15 a.m. every night.

The film "Amityville: Awakening," available on movie streaming websites, details the experiences of Belle Walker (Bella Thorne), a teenager who has unknowingly moved into the Amityville home with her mother (Jennifer Jason Leigh), little sister, and brain-dead twin brother. While living in the house, Belle’s brother suddenly appears to improve, but she soon learns he has been possessed by evil forces residing in the house.

Audiences gave the film a 40 percent rating and critics gave it a 20 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, describing it as “routine” and “under developed.”
