One of the BEST horror films EVER! If not, 'THE' best.
The film portrays TRUE events that happened in a real town called Amityville, Long Island NY in 1975.
"In a middle class, sleepy little town, a boy named Ronald Defeo, 'out of the blue', shoots to death all 6 members of his entire family in their sleep. The house is only a couple of meters away from the houses next door, and yet no shots were heard. The gun used was a high-powered rifle! The boy is arrested and sentenced to life. End of story.
Until, 1 year later the Lutz family moves into the house (the man uncannily looks very much like the murderer), only to move out 28 days later claiming that the house is (demonically) haunted.
The Lutz's story became worldwide news, and completely overshadowed the DeFeo story. The Lutz's wrote a book called 'The Amityville Horror' about their ordeal, then a film was made, based on the book, also called 'The Amityville Horror'."
This is a sequel to the Lutz's 'The Amityville Horror', but actually tells the story the Defeo's.
The movie offers a different perspective from the conventional facts. In the movie, shortly after the family moves in, subtle supernatural things start to happen. This, though, leads the father to turn violent, and domestic troubly start. A priest is asked to bless the house, but when he comes he soon wishes that he hadn't. One dark night the eldest boy, when in The house all alone, is violently possessed by something very evil. Over a period of time the boys attitude and appearance start to change for the worse, he then has incest with his sister, and finally he murders his entire family.
The cinematography in this film is in a class of it's own.
