The film's working title was Amityville 1993: The Image of Evil
It is unclear if the past murders are a reference to the real life DeFeo murders or are a separate event entirely. The name mentioned is Bonner instead of Defeo. A similar situation arose with the first sequel/prequel Amityville II: The Possession in which the Defeo family is renamed Montelli.
