Amityville II - The Possession (1982) UK Quad Poster
The jury's still out as to why this was entrusted to director Damiano Damiani, a man better known for action policiers and the occasional thoughtful western (A Bullet for the General (1967) his best). With a screenplay by Tommy Lee Jones (John Carpenter's long-time collaborator) and Dardano Sacchetti, a go-to writer for Argento, Bava and Fulci, this dark tale of family abuse, incest and murder wrapped up in demonic clothing, was a shocking departure from the more traditional haunted house original. With some kick-ass makeup effects from John Caglione's team, it outdid the rest of the series on every level.
