According to an interview with George Lutz at website Horror.com, (Lutz' twenty-eight days in the real-life house provided the base for The Amityville Horror (1979)), Lutz wanted this sequel to be based on John G. Jones' book "The Amityville Horror Part II". However, producer Dino De Laurentiis, in conjunction with American International Pictures, made this sequel based on Hans Holzer's book 'Murder in Amityville". Lutz sued De Laurentiis but was unsuccessful but was successful in getting a disclaimer put on posters that read "This film has no affiliation with George and Kathy Lutz". See more »

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?!
