I have never yelled at movie characters more than this!

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 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.

And atmosphere usurps the throne!!

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 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?!

Scariest of all AMITYVILLE premises.

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. 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.
