Plot Summary

The Montelli family is thrilled to move into their new home, which is so large, they think of the house as a mansion. Then strange things begin to happen: the mirror in the kitchen falls when they say grace, objects move by themselves, the faucet runs blood instead of water. The mother believes the house is satanic and asks the local priest to come and bless it. Meanwhile, the sinister house preys upon the family's tendency toward discord and leads them into violent conflicts. The father strikes his two younger children and his wife. The house also exploits the latent sexual attraction between the teenaged brother and sister. Soon, the oldest son has become possessed by demonic forces and poses a terrible threat to his family and the priest. Written by J. Spurlin

Did You Know?

Trivia The house in the film, as in the original The Amityville Horror (1979) movie, is not the actual house as depicted in the best-selling novel, as that dwelling was unavailable to shoot in for both films. The home in both movies was a Colonial style replica situated in Toms River, New Jersey. See more »

Quotes Mr. Booth, the Lawyer: [at the Montelli trial] ... Your Honor, it is my intention to prove that Sonny Montelli is a victim of demonic possession - that is, possession by the Devil - and therefore innocent of the charges placed against him.
Judge: Mr. Booth, I admire your originality. If I accept your plea, regardless of verdict, every courtroom in this country would be inundated with pleas of demonic possession. Nobody would be guilty of anything anymore. Quite literally, "The Devil made me do it." You have three days to submit another plea, Mr. Booth.
