Scarecrow Acquired, “Amityville” Pulled

Screen Gems and Unbroken Pictures have scored the rights to Mike Scannell’s horror-thriller spec script “Scarecrow”. “The Strangers” director Bryan Bertino and Adrienne Biddle are producing.

Set at a remote lake house, the story revolves around a mother and her two young daughters who must fight for survival after falling into a terrifying and bizarre nightmare conceived by a psychopath.

In other horror news, Dimension Films has reportedly pulled both the James Wan-presented “Demonic” and the upcoming reboot “Amityville: The Awakening” off the release date schedule.

The films were scheduled for a December 12th and January 2nd release respectively. No word on when either will settle on new dates.
