Trivia

The frost that blows out of the basement onto Candy Clark was actually warm wax. She later admitted that she had to wash her hair with detergent to get it all out. See more »

Goofs

When the evil forces caused the elevator to malfunction, the man inside is shown pressed against the ceiling as the elevator is rapidly descending. The only way this could happen is if the elevator was accelerating downward faster than the force of gravity could pull it. That he should stick to the ceiling is against the laws of physics.

Enter the gateway to hell
10 February 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A new dimension in ultimate evil has been added to the story to what has probably become the world's most notorious haunted house in America.

A magazine writer's investigation into a séance turns to horror when an abandoned well beneath the basement floor turns out to be the gateway to hell.

This film starred: Tony Roberts, Tess Harper & Meg Ryan

In my opinion this wasn't one of best entries in the Amityville film series, not the worst but no where near the best. It had a bad plot about the gateway to hell being a well in the basement. 93 minutes wasted in my opinion, it had a couple of entertaining scenes but nothing special.

**/***** Poor.
