Got him!

Mrs. Moriarty ...

Are you trying to scare the wits out of me?

I do beg your pardon I'm sure

Father, but you know confession

starts in a few minutes.

My new parishioners are waiting.

Yes, yes. I know.

Mrs. Moriarty ...

Would you check the windows upstairs?

It's a bit chilly, isn't it?

Yes, Father.

You don't suppose a Red has

a soul, do you Father?

I'm ready.

Who are you?

What do you want?

Who are you?

Oh, my god.

Overcast skies today folks with an expected

high of 55 degrees and some showers

expected later in the afternoon.

Then don't forget those

sweaters and umbrellas.

Should be clearing later in the day

with only a 30 percent chance ...

- Hey, I wanna catch the weather.

Weather report for the Try county area ...

- Eighteen and cloudy and cold.

I don't hear anything

about it being hot there.

If we hit the rush, we'll miss the agent.

He's gonna be there nine o'clock, sharp.

I'm hurrying.

To the place in Amityville

we gotta take Long Island expressway.

... percent chance of rain.

The long range forecast

calls for a continuation of this chilly

weather. The low pressure range coming...

This is Amityville.

The houses is about a mile

away on the other side of town.

- Marvin ...

turn right after the bridge.

- What?

Right ...


Turn it, Marvin.

This is ridiculous.

What is it, Debbie? Another one

of your premonitions?



What is it?

I know this house.

- This isn't even the right block.

Marvin ...

It's for sale.

Hey ...

I smell an opportunity.

I know this house.

Look at the size of this place.

It's enormous.

I wonder how much they want for it.

I know this house, Marvin.

- We have to get some partners,

who have some money.

Bill ...

- You never listen to me, Marvin.

- Bill's making money with his restaurant.

And Abby ...

Abby just married a lawyer, didn't she, Debbie?

Of course I'm gonna have to handle that deal.

And market it so high on Long Island like that?

We can ... we can just fixed up and ...

and advertise that on Manhattan.

I've seen this house before ...

in a dream.

You have some little fixer upper, huh?

So this is Amityville.

Hey, Marv.

There must be something wrong

with this place, huh?

Some minor repairs.

Nothing a little elbow grease won't cure.

How'd we get it so cheap, Marvin?

Well, negotiating. Pure and simple.

But, it's more like psychological torture.

Hey, Abby when's the big unveiling?

No, wait a minute

I'm not finished with it yet.

I'm gonna work on it this weekend.

You're gonna paint?

When I'm not renovating.

Oh, don't tell me a minor repair job, Marvin.

A welcoming gift.

- From who?

So ...

what do you think?

You're sure someone's

not still living in here?

- Look at this furniture.

All part of the deal. Even the curtains.

Marvin, will you help us, please?

Listen to me, Bill.

Hey, where's the easel.

Where's Debbie?

What do you think, sweetheart?

Your money ...

Yeah, mine too.

Now I'd like to get a better

look at what I bought into

Called county in myself just a week ago.

It must be a bad switch.

Need power for this thing, Marvin.

- Yeah, Marvin. How brilliant are you with

negotiating with the powers of darkness.

Very funny.

Anybody got a flashlight?

Look, what I found.

Ask and you shall receive.

This is great furniture.

- I told you it's a bargain.

Why's it all covered up?

Marvin, this is kind of weird.

Who's that?

It's your wife, Marvin.

- Debbie!

In here!

I'm in the kitchen!


This place bites.

- Are you okay, honey?

- I thought I heard something.

I'm sorry.

At least it's not broken.
