Amityville II The Possession - 1982 Film

This film was released in 1982 and IS a Prequel to The 1975 film "The Amityville Horror." This film, depicts the life of the Montelli family on Ocean Avenue (loosely based on the Defeo Family). The book "Murder In Amityville" by Hans Holzer was the foundation for the film. The film is semi nonfictional as it follows the family who consist of: Anthony Montelli (The Abusive Father), Dolores Montelli (The Religious Mother), Sonny (The eldest son who become "possessed" by demons), Patricia (Character loosely based on Dawn Defeo),Jan Montelli (loosely based on Allison Defeo), and Mark Montelli (loosely based on Marc Defeo).
While a prequel, Amityville II contradicts the opening of the 1979 film which shows the family massacre, and like the actual event they are all sleeping. The bodies are also removed from the house in the morning, but in the first film, it's in the middle of the night.
Some of the family drama in the film did happen to the Defeos, but are exaggerated. The story introduces speculative and controversial themes, including an incestuous relationship between Sonny Montelli and his teenaged sister, (who are based loosely on Ronald DeFeo, Jr. and his sister, Dawn.)

Though supposedly set one year before the first Amityville Horror film, Amityville II is full of elements that are clearly from the 1980s, such as a miniature "Walkman" radio/headphone set and the presence of 1982 cars, televisions, etc.
