Like in the previous film, a family moves into a HauntedHouse residing in Amityville, and the evil within it starts messing with them.

!!This film has examples of:

* AccidentalMurder: George sees a demonic spirit lunging at him an starts whacks it down with an axe. Afterwards, he realizes that he has been killing the family dog instead.
* AdaptationalVillainy: The possessed George Lutz. The actual George was not pleased and tried to sue the filmmakers until his death.
* AnAxeToGrind: When he fails to catch his family with a shotgun and loses it, George grabs the axe.
* ArcWords: "Katch 'em. Kill 'em."
* CatapultNightmare: George sees a nightmare where he finds himself with a shotgun, which he uses to blow his brains out. He then sits up in fright as he wakes up.
* CreepyChild: [[AmbiguouslyEvil Possible]] subversion with the ghost of Jodie [=DeFeo=].
* DarkerAndEdgier: Than the original movie, due to the remake's emphasis on the shock factor and [[JumpScare Jump Scares]] as well as the AdaptationalVillainy of the possessed George Lutz.
* EvilIsDeathlyCold: Played with, George feels cold everywhere in the house except the basement, where the evil originates.
* HearingVoices: George starts hearing disembodied that cpnstantly tell him to "katch 'em, kill 'em".
%%* MirrorScare
%%* NewHouseNewProblems
* PaterFamilicide: The evil in the house tries to goad George to kill his family.
