The Amityville story is one of the most publicized and famous true stories in the horror world.

Though, the name being attached to the Amityville: The Awakening movie wasn't enough to propel it to success at the box office. The film, which stars Bella Thorne grossed $742 on opening day.

The opening is consider to be the worst movie opening of all time, according to Complex. The report also revealed exactly what we were thinking.

No one had even heard of the film until the opening as there was almost zero promotion or advertising.

Ask your friends if they have heard of this film and we can pretty much guarantee their answer will be a big fat "no." Oh, but it gets much, much worse.

"Finally, the film was released by Dimension Films, a division of the Weinstein Company.

That makes The Awakening the first movie that the Weinstein Company has released since the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment scandal broke a few weeks ago," according to Complex.

Not the best way to kick off a film. From what reports have gathered, this film was doomed before it was even released.

Besides, it was film about three years ago.

Though, we do wonder if the numbers will rise once folks catch on about how minisucle the opening weekend was. Are you interested in checking out Amityville: The Awakening? Let us know in the comments section below.
