AMITYVILLE 2: THE POSESSION (1982) **

This prequel starts off promising enough by showing how the Amityville house drove its former occupant to murder his entire family with a shotgun.  Unfortunately after the murders, it becomes a third rate Exorcist rip-off.  I think Sam Raimi and company saw this before making Evil Dead because this movie features a guy in a buttoned down blue shirt with a shotgun being chased by the POV camerawork of a spirit that possesses his hand.  Hmm…  The incest subplot is a lot ickier than the actual possession.  Burt (Rocky) Young takes the acting honors as the alcoholic father.  Written by Tommy Lee (Halloween 3) Wallace.   The next sequel was in 3-D.
