The story follows the Montelli family, who move into a new house in Amityville, New York. The house is revealed to be haunted by a malevolent force that possesses the family’s teenage son, Sonny.

As the possession takes hold, Sonny becomes increasingly violent and erratic, attacking his family members and exhibiting supernatural abilities.
