And atmosphere usurps the throne!! (by glyptoteque)
It may lack originality, it is surely inspired by both The Exorcist and Evil Dead at least the two most obvious. , the familia matra may not be the best actress around, and you may accuse the special-effects team for having butter-fingers in the few instances you get to witness it. But then I ask you all,do you honestly think that this matter at all, when the film,all the way through to the end, positively reeks of brilliant, demonic, negative and cold atmosphere?!! For me and it should be for every decent horrorfan! atmosphere is the keyword when it comes down to good horror, and that's <more>
why "Exorcist 3", "Woman in Black", "Jacobs Ladder", "Society" etc. are all superb films. And likewise with "Amityville:"The Possession". What is so utterly endearing with it, is the willingness to flush the pestilent flower face of joy and positiveness down the filthy drain, and if it for some nauseating reason should manage to climb up again, down again it shall be trodden!! And what twisted tones to accompany the stomping boots of night?!! Excellence!! Witness simple but superb scenes like the chasing scene up the stairs, the paintbrush honouring the wall with disharmony, the mischievous pounding on the door, the diabolical face of the golden boy,and tell me, tell me that this is not superb, twisted and dark horror?!

Could have been worse (by grafspee2)
For those of us that watch movies and are able to separate facts from what is made up or imagined, Amityville 2 is an excellent although at sometimes hackneyed, schlocky and plain cheesy horror film that evokes painful emotions as well as an depressing slow moving art house film.The dark pernicious mood is well established with the camera work, sinister lighting, and general hopelessness that settles into Sonny's festering possession.The Lutzs, obsessed with the occult and the financial gains they could take from the atrocity of six murders of the DeFeo family in Amityville, Long Island <more>
in 1974. They brought it upon themselves and it is hard for the audience to feel compelled to care about what happens to them. This film fictionalizes the events and distills the Defeos Montellis from the sensationalism of a hoax, creating a moody atmospheric film about a doomed family from either the Demon, itself, or their own ready to explode domestic violence. It was easy for this evil to take over forcing Sonny to 'rape' his sister, and kill his family, which makes the horror even more seductive and terrifying--the lack of control of his actions.This is a film I found to be extraordinarily creative with a lackluster source material, that if you take it seriously forget the last half-hour you will be surprised how controversial this film truly still is even today in comparisons to the moody downer of Tim Roth's the War Zone, which is about human evil.
The Best Of The Amityville Movies (by josephbrando)
This movie takes place prior to "The Amityville Horror" before the Lutz's moved in and claimed the house was haunted . It is based on the teenage boy who brutally murdered his entire family and believed that he did so while being possessed by forces inside the house, which is a true story. It is genuinely scary and pretty realistic for a horror movie about demonic possession . Half of the scares come from the otherworldly evil presence in the house and the other half come from the quite realistic and not so uncommon everyday evils that occur in so many dysfunctional families. <more>
And as far as dysfunctional families go...this one takes the cake! If you were raised in a Christian household, you will probably find this movie more frightening than the average person. The soundtrack is very creepy and the actors are very likable, so you really feel sorry for them when they all bite the dust. The only complaint I have about this film is that it is too long....instead of ending relatively soon after the boy murders his family, it goes on and on with the priest attempting to exorcise the teen...and although this is where most of the special effects occur, you kind of feel bored because all of the characters you were introduced to are gone. All in all, though, it is still a very good movie and much scarier than the original.
Well, I tend to ignore a lot of B movies given their reputation for being under produced and of poor quality. In about August 2004, I had borrowed my brother's girlfriend's copy of this film because she had mentioned it, and I thought I'd take a risk and watch it. Anyhow, I personally found it to be a fairly frightening film. This is coming from someone who is a horror fan and has seen countless horror films, and rarely ever gets as on-edge as I did while watching this. I personally would go as far as to say it was better than the original in that it tells the story from another <more>
perspective than the original did. It focuses around a vulnerable teen, with a typically abusive father, and a typical victim family. Throughout the film, the son goes into a downward spiral until he has entirely succumb to the forces of the home his family had purchased some time before, and eventually goes to to murder his family, etc. Ifeel the story was very well told for what it was, the budget it was, and the time in which it was released. I would definitely recommend it.
For My Money, The Best Of A Loooong Series (by AllNewSux)
I honestly don't view this film that often because there is a lot of REAL horror on the screen that makes watching, at least the first half, rather uncomfortable. I'm no fan of things like beatings or incest which happen in homes everyday, but the way this movie is presented, it challenges you to watch it. You are introduced to a messed up family moving into a house, perhaps with the hope that a change like this will make things in their life better. The reality is that regardless of whether this house was possessed or not, this family the Montellis brought it's own demons with <more>
it. After the first hour the deed is done, that any of us Amityville fans or scholars already know about since it is why the first movie happened. I wouldn't say it gets "fun" after this, but at least the focus shifts from a realistic abusive family to supernatural demonic possession and the priest's battle for Sonny's soul. Where the first half is horrific due to it's realism, the second half is terrifying thanks to great filmmakers. For me, this movie is similar to Ju-On 2002 or The Exorcist 1973 where as I'm watching some of the scarier scenes, I'm actually looking over my shoulder. The basement scenes are particularly effective in scaring the Hell out of the average movie fan. Most critics at the time panned this movie, but how many of them are real horror fans? Ignore them and buy this film whether you own the first Amityville Horror or not. Admittedly there are one or two special effects that might be called "goofy", but the majority of them blow away any CGI put on a screen today. For a horror fan, I would call this a MUST SEE!
I liked "The Possession" more than the original. Part one was so phony that it was even comical in parts not to mention the over-acting . Part two contains more real life horrors such as incest, child abuse, domestic violence and mental illness. Yes, it is loosely based on the DeFeo case. However, I believe the director avoided direct links to the incident because of possible lawsuits. One disagreement I have with William C. Uchtman is when he stated in his review that Ronald DeFeo Sr. was a swell guy. Well according to "City Confidential" on A&E, the father was very <more>
abusive and was reported to have beaten "Butch" to a bloody pulp one time for simply talking back at the dinner table. Wife beatings were also reported. So, the abuse scenes are quite valid. The part when "Sunny" points a shotgun at his father after he punched his wife is valid too except that, in the real case, Butch pulled the trigger with no shells inside. That was the only difference. The counterculture involved is also interesting. The Montelli's are no typical American family, you see this from the start when Sunny returns from buying a pack of cigarettes and has an arguement with his father who threatens to "kick his ass".Yes, "Possession" did copy parts of The Exorcist, but it's still a good film with more gory scenes than the original.If you like over-acted supernatural thrillers, you may enjoy the first. But if you want to see a movie based on a real murder case though admittedly from a supernatural point of view , "Possession" is for you.
I have never yelled at movie characters more than this! (by baumer)
May contain some spoilers:It's true. I have read some of the commments in here and there's are actually two people that said the exact same thing about the film. And that was that the film should have ended when the priest was looking into the house and he sees the spirit of the dead girl walking. Then the old lady comes up to him and says she has heard stories about the house. That would have been an awesome way to end it and I then would have given it a ten. As it stands I am still giving it an 8 because even though the end was contrived and straight out of The Exorcist, it is still <more>
one hell of a scary film. And if you thought you had reason in the first one to yell " Get out!" then wait till you see this one.The first hour of this film is absolutely terrifying. It has so much atmosphere and chilling scenes that I couldn't understand why people hated this film so much. The room in the basement is dark, dingy and the camera work is so spooky that you can't help but get suckered into believing that something is in there. When the mom is ironing and she feels something touch her arm and then the wind, that was a perfect scene. It was frightening. But the highlight of this film is when the family minus Sonny goes to church. It is here that Sonny gets stalked by an unseen force. And I even caught myself yelling at the TV, " GET OUT! " When he goes up the stairs and then down and then back up again into his room, it bothered me and it literally gave me chills. The camera work is so creative and haphazard that you really can't tell where the demon is. Is it on the ceiling, behind him, in front of him, where? That was a brilliant sequence in the film.Some of the acting is pretty bad especially from the mom, but it makes up for that with its chills and tension. I really think that people that criticize this film are perhaps people that should watch it again. I saw it for the first time when I was about 16 and thought it was okay, but then I rented it today and it frightened me during the day. That is pretty good film making. And is it me or are Italian directors better at good horror than the average north American director? Because I've seen some pretty scary horror films that were directed by Italians and they seem to have a style all their own. Just a thought.Amityville II is a perfect film to watch before the original. It is actually a prequel and it is good to watch them back to back. Give this film a chance and I'll bet it will scare you. It did a pretty good job on me.8.5/10
An excellent build up of suspense and tension ends in hoo har! (by seanahalpin)
Well, I just bought this movie on DVD - it had been my absolute favourite horror movie when I was a kid... and now... well, put it this way. From my now adult perspective it was kind of icky. The incest thing was unpleasant but note the suggestion of incest in the actual DeFeo case, as discussed in the book "Murder in Amityville".The scene where the little boy is chased around the house and finally shot is also quite distressing.But, to be fair, this is a horror movie. Nobody can expect the Sound of Music. And it is horrific and builds suspense well. The atmosphere is tense, and <more>
the house is the perfect "haunted house" gothic tableau for the supernatural ghastliness.Everything is excellent until that awful last half hour - suspense is sacrificed and in its place are some fake-looking unspecial effects, over the top exorcism scenes and other hoo-har.And yet, I cannot look away!
