Description by OLDIES.com:
This collection of chilling horror movies includes the following films:
AMITYVILLE 3-D: Skeptical journalist John Baxter (Tony Roberts) and photographer Melanie (Candy Clark) expose a fraudulent medium who is operating in the infamous Amityville haunted house. Then John surprises Melanie by deciding to buy the house and live in it. John's estranged wife, Nancy (Tess Harper), is also surprised, then disturbed, when John encourages their daughter, Susan (Lori Loughlin), to visit. The house attacks visitors with horrors that include insects and extreme cold and heat. Eventually, parapsychologist Eliot West (Robert Joy) comes to investigate.
THE AMITYVILLE HORROR: A real-life haunted house becomes a frontpage story in this tale of a family whose Long Island dream home becomes an oozing, horrific nightmare. The brutal murder of six people just one year previous causes the new tenants some restless nights, to say the least! Based on the "non-fiction" book by Jay Anson. Academy Award nominations: Best Original Score.
AMITYVILLE 2 - THE POSSESSION: This gory prequel is loosely based on the case of the DeFeo murders, which took place in the famed house in Ocean Avenue before the Lutz's, whose tale was told in THE AMITYVILLE HORROR, moved in. When The Montellis, an Italian-American family, move into the not-yet notorious home, it's not long before rebellious teenage son Sonny (JACK MAGNER) takes to seducing his sister (Diane Franklin, THE LAST AMERICAN VIRGIN, BETTER OFF DEAD) and slaughtering the entire family. Investigation by the authorities points to the boy's demonic possession, which is later evidenced by a grisly EXORCIST-inspired physical transformation. Screenwriter Tommy Lee Wallace is a frequent collaborator of John Carpenter.
