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, Rovi

Audience Reviews for La Casa 3 (Ghosthouse)


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.)
