Even though the Montelli family is based on the real life DeFeo family, there are a few creative liberties taken. For example, the movie shows the family just moving into the home at the film's beginning and being murdered weeks later, when in real life, the DeFeos had lived in the home for about 10 years prior to the murder. All of the children's ages were correct for the most part, but one of the sons was omitted from the movie; the Defeo family had three sons and not two as the movie shows. Some of the family drama did actually happen but is exaggerated. The incestuous relationship between the older siblings was based on Ronald and Dawn's rumoured incestuous relationship. The older son was also shown to be a clean cut and average young man, where Ronald DeFeo was a drug addict with a criminal background. See more »
(at around 33 mins) As Sonny is being chased by something unseen, the camera rises above him, and someone from the crew can be seen standing behind the wall in the bottom left corner. See more »
Amityville II The Possession was basically the same as the first, except with a bunch of twisted ideas thrown in. But I think the ideas "thrown in" add a sense of kraziness into the whole story. The movie was definitely better than the first story and also gives the viewer an idea of why the house is haunted. Another part that separates this from the previous film is the music. The music provides a sense of anxiety and is perfectly matched to the film from beginning to end. The ideas of possession and incest are really great touches also. Anyways, the movie was decent and worth seeing at least once.
