Fear of the unknown also entered the world of cinema, and "Demonic Possession" became one of the most prolific subjects in the "paranormal horror" genre. It does not matter if the films are based on the imagination of the authors or if the phrase "based on a true story" appears in their initial credits, in any case, they bring a lot of money to their creators. The high sales of works in this genre show that the audience is very interested in the challenges of being possessed by Evil creatures.

Horror in Amityville is one of the few remakes that did even better than the original 1979 film. Both were adapted from a book of the same name by Jay Anson, which is also inspired by a completely true story. Before we get into Andrew Douglas' film, let's take a look at the story behind this ugly mansion: The case that ironically made this house famous dates back to 1974; A 23-year-old man named Ronald Defoe is arrested for allegedly killing six members of his family by direct fire. Young Ronald later confesses that the voices he heard at Amityville's house encouraged him to do so and that he was not normal at the time of the murder. It has never been established whether Ronald's claims were true or whether he fabricated the nonsense just to escape the bloodbath punishment, but the house affair has become a local legend for years.
The Dafu family was left homeless for a long time and no one was willing to set foot on the property where the bloodshed took place, but finally a young couple and their three children are persuaded because of the unique architecture and of course the very low price. They buy the infamous property, but the Lutz family stays in this house for only 28 days, and they finally run away from the house in great panic without taking their belongings. The Lutz family later told a scary story About those years, the truth of which is still unknown, but apparently there are supernatural forces in the Amityville mansion that harass residents, and this story was later confirmed by several real estate consultants!
The presence of Ryan Reynolds is one of the factors that makes this film even scarier; At first we see him with the same image of cold blood and humor, but as the story progresses, he becomes a demon possessed and full of madness, as if he has no control over his behavior and movements.

The Horror movie that announces the main character's death from the beginning is usually not too suspenseful, but Emily Rose's exorcism is no exception. This film, like many Horror films, is adapted from a real event; The story goes that a young girl named Anheliz Michel died in 1976 due to complications from sex, which included dehydration, malnutrition and broken bones. Doctors claimed he only had epilepsy and needed medical treatment, but his parents decided to use a Catholic priest for sex because of their strong religious beliefs.
The story of the film is About A priest is arrested on suspicion of involvement in the death of a 19-year-old girl, Emily Rose (Jennifer Carpenter), and a lawyer (Laura Linney) agrees to defend her in court, but the story is more complicated than it seems. The film is full of flashbacks and shows Emily Rose gradually getting worse and worse. Because he never fully states whether Emily Rose was possessed by Evil forces or just suffers from some kind of mental disorder and leaves the judgment to the audience. Also, although the audience knows the end of the film from the beginning, it is very suspenseful and the audience has been horrified to watch it all these years.

To verify their claims, they decide to enlist the help of a couple named Ed and Lauren Warren, who specialize in supernatural activities.

And saw conquered houses as a specialist in supernatural activities. For example, one of their most important cases is About the famous Annabelle doll, which was first discovered by the couple and they claimed that it was actually possessed by the ghost of an Evil girl.
