    I’m giving this a generous 2 stars. Certainly better written than the Jay Anson original, The Amityville Horror II presents many issues in a supposedly true story. The names of the kids have changed, which creates a problem in empathysising with them, as the reader is constantly trying to rectify them with the first book.

The recreation of the climatic scene from the first is substantially different, so that one is trying to either forget the original events or creating a new series in their mind. The writing style of John G. Jones sets up a better atmosphere overall, as the tension and danger is palpable. However, there are too many scenes that go nowhere. At one point the little girl (either Missy or Amy, take your pick) is sick, yet there’s no follow up, just a jump of several weeks. This is a difficulty throughout the book, as the time jumps too far ahead and then references back to events not covered in the narrative. The Amityville Horror, both I and II, is a perfect example of poorly executed great story. There’s so much potential here for a great horror novel, let down by a terrible writing style and too many obvious inconsistencies.

I would recommend reading Amityville Horror before reading this review The Amityville Horror II was about George and Kathy Lutz and their experiences after staying in their Haunted house in Amityville. George was almost trapped by the evil when he tried to escape from the house.It also held him nearly suspended in time unable to move and speak upon his bed slowly draining his energy.

George was almost trapped by the evil when he tried to escape from the house.It also held him nearly suspended in time unable to move and speak upon his bed slowly draining his energy. Once he broke free the family made their escape. The Lutz's run away from the Horror that lurks in their small home. but when they think that it is gone. Things take a turn for the worst. The Evil reappears and starts to follow the Lutz's. The evil that once was inside the Amityville house has escaped and slowly haunts the Lutz's everywhere they go. In their vehicle and in the Mothers House. This evil is nearly impossible to stop but can it be defeated? I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in Horror. This book is filled with excitement and thrills. You may get scared but otherwise the book is true. When you first meet the Lutz's you can feel the terror and fear that fills their souls when the evil starts to over come the family slowly tearing them apart again and again. I would give this book 5/5 because it contains the right amount of Horror and thrills to keep the reader into the book. When you start reading the book it recaps the first one then it gets right into the action and sucks the reader in. It continues that story of George and Kathy Lutz. Who's home in Amityville became a living hell causing them to vacate. Reading this story makes you wonder what has caused this evil? Why is it following the Lutz's? Is there anyone who can stop it? Read the book to find out! Be careful the evil could be anywhere!!!

    Good book, especially if you need something creepy to read while you are camping and can't sleep.

    Ok, so let's start by taking the first book, the "real story" of the Lutz's home in Amityville out of the equation on this. It will make things much easier to deal with. Ok? Good. Everything in this book is utter horseshit. Every word of it, and it's not even subtly hidden either. It's so blatant in its fabrication that the final 100 pages nothing but hammering home "THIS IT TOTALLY REAL YOU GUYS AND YOU SHOULD FEEL AWFUL IF YOU DON'T THINK SO." Seriously, it's just sad.

It's so blatant in its fabrication that the final 100 pages nothing but hammering home "THIS IT TOTALLY REAL YOU GUYS AND YOU SHOULD FEEL AWFUL IF YOU DON'T THINK SO." Seriously, it's just sad. Before you even get that far though, it's clear that something isn't right. Right from the first chapter, where they completely contradict their story about what happened on the final night in the house. Then add in the fact that the "evil power" wildly swings from serious events like possession and attempted murder, right back to the mundane like making someone misplace their keys before finally petering out into nothing more than make everyone have a string of, not even bad luck, but minor inconveniences. "Oh darn, I broke a heel." GASP!!! WHAT HORROR WILL THE FOUL DEMON COMMIT NEXT?? The sad thing is, it's not even entertaining in a way that you can laugh at it. It's a slog. A dull, repetitive slog that doesn't so much come to an end as the author simply just decides to stop writing. So, yeah...I'd skip this one.

    I totally loved this book and have read it around six times. It's been years since I last read I but I wonder if I'd be disappointed if indulged once again. Maybe I should keep the spooky memories locked away now. Or...maybe not!

    Ah, almost forgot about this one. I don't usually go in for horror, but it seemed like everyone was reading these books or seeing the movies there for a while. (I wonder if the national fascination with demon possession and hauntings then was to counterbalance all the crooked television evangelists?) With tongue firmly planted in cheek, I'm shelving it as non-fiction since that't the conceit with it. Frankly, I suspect the whole thing was an elaborate rouse.

With tongue firmly planted in cheek, I'm shelving it as non-fiction since that't the conceit with it. Frankly, I suspect the whole thing was an elaborate rouse. Maybe something did happen to the Lutz family, but I doubt it was as presented. This book was supposedly a "behind the scenes" that was supposed to both tell the "real" story and continue it from the original Amityville Horror, which was presented as a novelization "based on a true story." Jay Anson wrote the original and apparently saw no need to follow it up, but Jones and a couple other writer's wrote several follow-ups over the next couple of decades as court cases flew and shows such as "In Search Of" or "That's Incredible" would pull the thing out of the mothballs for another go round. Basically, this is supposed to suggest that the "thing" that terrorized the Lutz family in Amityville followed them and continued to make trouble. It's really not that interesting (or spooky). Anson knew how to weave a truly--if not true--creepy story. Jones's extension read more like the milking of a cash cow.

    Less of a horror story and more of a survival story, The Amityville Horror II still manages to sneak in some good scares while presenting a more vivid and fascinating story than the original.

    So this is the 'true' follow up to the Amityville Horror. I read the original Amityville Horror when I was in fifth grade after hearing my grandmother talking about it and I remember being very unnerved after finishing it.

After growing up and reading more about the Defeo case and the Lutz case I find the story harder to believe. Especially after reading this follow up book, watching interviews with Ronald Defeo (who has changed his story MANY times) and watching the documentary that one of the Lutz boys made a couple years ago. I do believe that SOMETHING happened to the Lutz family during their stay in the house. I mean, no one leaves their new house and all of their belongings and never go back for them without a good reason. I also believe that the family believes that these events happened to them, my best advice is to not take the book too seriously if reading it because there must be a reason the library I borrowed it from has it shelved in Fiction.

You'd think they'd get the kids exorcised as well, especially Amy, even though I know she wasn't really affected like George and Kathy were and wasn't nearly drowned like Greg, Matt didn't really have much happen to him either but I'd think they'd try and get Jodie gone although that would upset Amy.

    This wasn't a bad read but it wasn't as good as the first book (hardly surprising given Jay Anson didn't write it) and it seemed to lack that 'thing' that gave the first one that chill you to bone factor. Whether it's because Jones is not as accomplished a horror writer as Anson or whether it's because it feels like the author and family are just cashing in on the success of the first book I do not know, but there's definitely something lacking in the story as a whole. The climax of the story is This wasn't a bad read but it wasn't as good as the first book (hardly surprising given Jay Anson didn't write it) and it seemed to lack that 'thing' that gave the first one that chill you to bone factor.

The climax of the story is fairly good but doesn't send that chill up your spine which you'd expect from a story like this. Overall not a bad read but lacking in a bit of chill/scare/fear factor that leaves the story a bit flat.

    It may be that the occurrences in Amityville were real, or they may have been made up by a couple who needed money and found a way to cash in on a tragedy which had happened at their home. It may have been just a string of exceptionally bad luck. Whichever opinion you agree with, this book has all the elements of a horror story - creepy old house, demon attacks, superstitious neighbors, etc., etc., but unfortunately uses those elements poorly.

Instead of having the novel "based on a true story", the author could have made a scarier story from his own imagination. In addition, 'Amityville 2' has more typos than I'm comfortable with in a published novel, and the narrative seems very rushed.

    To clarify, at this point the amount of material in the book that actually originated in the claims of the Lutz family is drastically reduced; the book is largely a work of complete fiction. As to its quality, the book is inconsistent. The beginning of the book, ironically, is the most exciting. Once the Lutz family moves to California, however, things slow down and practically stop.

Nothing in this book is nearly as interesting or disturbing as the events from the original. The climax, too, is largely underwhelming. Perhaps most notable is the fact that John G. Jones simply cannot write an effective horror scene. There are things here that are creepy in concept, but the delivery always falls flat.

    One might be able to figure out, since Jay Anson couldn't even bother to write the sequel to his own book, that The Amityville Horror 2 would not live up to the first. Yeah. I can't even recall if this book's plot was remotely similar to the 1970's "Amityville II: The Possession," the most significant and creepy plotline of which was the incestuous relationship between the brother and sister (which was kinda creepy even before the "possession").

If you like cheesy horror movies, you have to watch this just so you can get to "Amityville 3-D," in which Meg Ryan and Lori Laughlin discover a portal to hell in their basement. Fun!
