Damn! “Amityville: The Awakening” Made Just $742 in Opening Weekend

Wow! Dimension Films' horror film, Amityville: The Awakening, opened at the box office over the weekend... and earned just $742.

While the low number is rather sad, it did open at just 10 theaters. Still, the ticket sales make the Amityville film -- which stars Bella Throne and Jennifer Jason Leigh -- one of the worst openings of all time, according to IndieWire.

On average, and with zero advertising, the movie pulled in just $74 per theaters.

The movie is the 10th installment of the Amityville horror franchise and is also a direct sequel to the original 1979 film, The Amityville Horror.

Despite being a storied horror franchise, there is a reason why it did some poorly. Apparently, Amityville: The Awakening was released for free on Google Play in early October, and will hit Blu-ray and DVD in November.

The limited, 10-theater release was likely a release for fans surrounding Halloween.

Still... $742 is pretty bad.
