The horrors here are set in a hospital, not the infamous house.
AMITYVILLE UPRISING, the latest in-name-only Amityville movie from writer/director Thomas J. Churchill (THE AMITYVILLE MOON), comes to VOD/digital platforms and DVD January 11 from Lionsgate. Scott C. Roe, Kelly Lynn Reiter, Tank Jones, Alysha Young and Mike Ferguson star; the synopsis: “A chemical blast at a military base sets off a supernatural disaster in this tense action-horror thriller. As Sgt. Dash [Roe] 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 [Reiter] figure out who is friend and foe, fend off the attacks, and defend their colleagues until the savage cataclysm subsides?”
