If these walls could talk… they would SHRIEK!
The italian-american family Montelli moves into an old house on Amityville, Long Island. The father of the family is a drunken sleazebag named Anthony, Dolores is the mother, a woman who wants the best for everyone but does not take well care of herself. Sonny is their biggest child, a typical young man who is about to enter adulthood. Patricia is his younger teenage sister who is naive and beautiful. And there’s also two younger children named Jan and Mark.
Soon after they move in Sonny starts to feel sick and behaves weirdly and strange stuff keeps happening. Dolores invites Father Adamsky over to bless the house, something that doesn’t go quite as planned and Adamsky eventually believes that Sonny is possessed by a demonic spirit and that the entire family is under great danger.
Amityville 2 is kind of a prequel to the original movie. The stories that the Lutz’s heard about in the first movie is supposed to be about this Montelli family. While the first one was a classy horror movie, this one however is sleazy, depraved and nasty. While the Lutz was a common and alright family, the Montelli’s are a very dysfunctional one that you don’t get a lot of sympathy for.
