    Amityville II: The Possession (1982)

    Was wondering when this was going to happen; he didn't look so good in the last few interviews I saw.

    Amityville II: The Possession (1982)

    Do you see the colored elements they put behind the glass to make the windows appear in different shades, as seen in that first pic? :lol::lol: I guess the idea was to suggest the house is "changing emotions" as the story goes on...

    Amityville II: The Possession (1982)

    With regard to the window "gels," check these out: Then, in another part, they're this color: Here's the side of the house missing the windows in the third film (they were hoping no one would notice for the quick moment the scene pops up):

    Amityville II: The Possession (1982)

    Hey Jim, Hope you had a good and safe new year; here's to hoping the new one is better, eh? Do you mean you didn't believe the true aspect of the incest narrative as once spewed by DeFeo from his jail cell? Because that's where Tommy Lee Wallace and Damiani got the idea from, to include in...

    Great analysis, Jim -- thanks! Will get back to you in detail, my friend...

    Amityville II: The Possession (1982)

    Okay, Jim...in continuing with the replies to your last post: Wow....so is it safe to say I'm not really missing anything by not owning the Blu-ray and listening to the commentaries? What about the interview with Diane Franklin -- was that interesting? Yeah, when you get a chance, listen to...

    Amityville II: The Possession (1982)

    Okay, Jim...sorry for the long delay in getting back to you about this... Yeah, 99.9-percent of Scream's releases, I'd say (at least from my experience), take the original audio from these titles and offer a 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio surround remix; I had asked about this on the cancerous...

    Amityville II: The Possession (1982)

    Indeed...you should write a review of the set. I'm going to consider hunting this down on the used circuit... What do you mean you have to use someone else's home theater? As I said previously, that's really surprising because most of the reviews of this title are glowing, most...

    Amityville II: The Possession (1982)

    Okay, Jim...so in getting back to what you were saying about the Scream Factory release... I kind of expected this, but I read in one review that some of the creepier moments are rendered better with the surround mix -- specifically moments like when Sonny is being "laughed at" by the...

    Amityville II: The Possession (1982)

    Wow, that's surprising -- I never saw that on the DVD. I'm surprised no reviews mentioned this; can you capture an image of it? You can actually see the smoke machines? So that "flashing" still occurs as they walk? Damn...you're just pickin' everything up...and I thought I was a...

    Amityville II: The Possession (1982)

    Is your 55" a 4K model? Are you gonna keep your DVD set or sell it now? Wow -- this is surprising, because almost every review talks about the improved contrast and other elements of The Possession in Scream's set. No, I don't think you'd be one of the "few" fans who'd care about this...

    Amityville II: The Possession (1982)

    Gonna get back to your individual comments as soon as I can...

    Amityville II: The Possession (1982)

    Wow...thanks for the update, Jim! Where did you pick up the set? What made you want it?
  15. Kaskade1309

    Amityville II: The Possession (1982)

    So you DO see the "pulsing" of the screen I'm talking about? If so, that means more than one batch received this disc with this error... I wonder if the Scream Factory Blu-ray exhibits this, though I never see any review mention it.
  16. Kaskade1309

    Amityville II: The Possession (1982)

    Good catches on the additional continuity... As for that sequence when Adamsky is tricked into thinking blood is coming out of the sprinkler, you're right -- that's a wicked scene. And Rutanya Alda's ear-piercing shriek as it happens really bellows if you have the volume up high enough...
  17. Kaskade1309

    Amityville II: The Possession (1982)

    Hahahahahahaha....yeah, I see it now....as I said before, WOW... Gonna have to see if I notice it when I watch the DVD....

    Amityville II: The Possession (1982)

    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you, Jim... I am going to have a look at the video again -- but I NEVER noticed those feet in all the years I'm watching this film. Very interesting. And you said there's also a boom mic shadow, I think, in one shot? Good catch on Sonny's shirt -- I...

    Amityville II: The Possession (1982)

    Wow....

    Amityville II: The Possession (1982)

    LOL... Those would be great additions for hardcore fans. It's weird about the "movie house," as it's difficult to imagine them turning that thing into what we see in the first three films, save for the reconstructing of the "cape-esque" elements of the roof and siding... Here is a shot of...

    Amityville II: The Possession (1982)

    That's not the original list I was referring to, which was provided earlier; I merely meant that I didn't see the title in that box for the issue that supposedly covers it.
  22. Kaskade1309

    Amityville II: The Possession (1982)

    LOL...LOL....I'd absolutely love to do the commentary with you on a 4K release of the title.... Something tells me we're not gonna see that, though; seems to me fans were lucky even to get MGM to put out the DVD set (for the record, that set was the first time The Possession and 3-D were made...
  23. Kaskade1309

    Amityville II: The Possession (1982)

    But there are a ton of other titles listed there, is my point...Amityville II should be somewhere in the beginning, as it's going in alphabetic order... At any rate, I take your word for it, as I recall something about him really digging that film...

    Amityville II: The Possession (1982)

    I'm looking at issue 172 -- it's not on that list of films mentioned in the little box. I am not referring to the interview itself not being there, of course.

    Amityville II: The Possession (1982)

    I actually don't see it on that list in the link...

    Awesome...thanks Reggie!

    Amityville II: The Possession (1982)

    Jim, You make some very interesting and noteworthy points, and I will get back to them in detail just as soon as I can. In the meantime, I can leave you with this: If you own the 2005 MGM box set, which I do and which, yes, I was referring to, you already have the History Channel documentaries...

    Amityville II: The Possession (1982)

    Indeed; this sequence was a little ridiculous, attempting to show and "explain" the physical possession of Sonny's body -- in my opinion, it's not something that's supposed to be shown, as William Friedkin understood so expertly when he shot The Exorcist. There's also a moment in The Conjuring...
  29. Kaskade1309

    Amityville II: The Possession (1982)

    I agree with most of what you say here, Jim, and will respond to individual questions and paragraphs as soon as I have more time. For now, I will answer your question about the Stephen Kaplan book, of which he was pictured in front of the house in black and white...it was called The Amityville...

    Amityville II: The Possession (1982)

    The film isn't actually known as The Amityville Horror II...so technically, the thread title is wrong.
