At true sequel (as opposed to the previous movie in this series). Much of the humor has returned as well as William Katt in his role. A lady (very pretty Terri Treas) inherits an old house when her husband dies. She and her handicapable daughter move in, but soon are faced with a slimy step-brother-in-law and demons. Not as good as the first two, mostly because nothing seems original about it; even the best parts, the singing pizza and Mr Grosso, seem like they're taken from other, better, movies.

Last entry for this quite decent 'Horror' franchise, well actually its officially the third film but we won't go down that confusing alley again. Unfortunately the franchise bows out with a disappointing story which isn't really scary nor funny. A young couple that own a big house are being slowly hounded into selling by a relation with connections to the mafia. Of course the man of the house is taken out of the picture leaving the young widow to fend for herself. Katt returns as his character of Cobb, he is married and has one young girl. This plot doesn't connect in any way to the previous films but simply a new story. The story in question is slow and dull containing many flashbacks and not really much else. The same theme of the young widow being tormented by her dreams and Cobb's dastardly brother in law who wants the land is repeated over and over until finally we get somewhere towards the finale. Guess what? the house was built on an ancient Native American well (originality much?) and the spirits of the Native Americans and Cobb are trying to help her against Cobb's brother in law and the mob. Its very easy to predict and pretty tame stuff, no real ghosts or ghouls to be seen, no monsters, no blood or gore etc...just odd flashbacks and blinking lights. In no way a thriller, not a horror comedy and not a horror, more of a very light-hearted spooky tale.

No way comparible to the others but if you're a fan of the series than there is no reason not to see it. The ending is sappy and William Catt dies very early in the film.
