Probably the best movie of the series, I think. Okay, that's not saying much, but it's actually quite enjoyable. And probably the strongest, plot wise.
A magazine writer who happens to debunk psychics ends up buying the infamous house for cheap, blackmailing the current owner (a realtor, who is worried about his reputation, he had leased the house to two fake pyschics). And wackiness ensues. But it's not over the top at first, more general creepiness. There's nothing really special effect wise until the end, at which it does get a bit silly, but it's quite a finish.
It was originally in 3-D, and so you see a lot of shots that were intended to capitalize on this - frisbees thrown at the camera, flying swordfish, etc.
Also notable about this movie, it's the source for a quote frequently sampled by My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult.
