Movie Info

This Italian haunted-house outing begins with strange, paranormal emanations being picked up as radio signals by a group of Boston youths, who trace the signal to an abandoned estate. When they enter to investigate, they are attacked by the malevolent spectre of a young girl and her sinister-looking clown doll, who manages to decimate nearly the entire cast. The ensuing mayhem incorporates some of the goriest effects ever to grace a haunted house film, including axe murders, acid baths, impalements, and decapitations -- the nastiest of which features an unfortunate teen bisected by a falling pane of glass. Despite a fairly rich atmosphere and an ominous mood, this is really just a prolonged excuse for gruesome (though, admittedly, well-staged) giallo-style death scenes. After a spooky initial setup, the endlessly repeating musical ghost-message becomes profoundly annoying. ~ Cavett Binion, Rovimore

So-so Italian effort that's appropriately cheesy but not gory enough to be considered good. It does have it's moments but you'd just expect more from a director like Lenzi.

AKA Evil Dead 3. This film is a bit of a contradiction. It's laughable and ridiculous yet simultaneously compelling and creepy. I was legitimately creeped out by certain moments but would also realize how cheesy it was as well. Also did I mention how bizarre it is? This "Ghosthouse" is haunted in the weirdest way. I wish, however that the director could have put forth a picture that was shot less stale.
But either way it was still fun and freaky. (what a corny this to say.)

If you look past the bland atmosphere and the unlikness to the other La Casa (Evil Dead) films, it's kinda fun. Lot of creepiness, gore, and cheap effects. Plus the clown doll is rather eerie. Not a great story, but still interesting enough to sit through.
