Trivia

According to producer 'Joe d'Amato', the film was a commercial success mainly because of Achille Manzotti's idea to change the title from "Ghosthouse" to "La Casa 3" ("La Casa 1" and "2" being the Italian titles for Sam Raimi's The Evil Dead (1981) and Evil Dead II (1987)). See more »

Goofs

When Henrietta is shown lying in her coffin her legs are apart, but when it cuts to a shot of Paul pouring the gasoline in her legs are crossed. See more »

Quotes

Jim: Who are you? What do you want? For God's sake... somebody help me... help... aarghh!

How can you not like this?
23 November 2000 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I can't believe that there are people out there who don't like this movie!! I've got to say that this is one of my favorite horror movies. I loved it from the first time I saw it. There are pretty good scare scenes, and some gruesome gore. For example, when Tina is cut in half, when Jim gets it in the neck with the fan blade, the blood coming from the faucet...etc. One freaky part is how the clown turns into Tina after she is dead, and comes to Susan. I can assure you that that would scare the hell out of me!!

The ending was quite bizarre, and I wish they would have made a sequel, just so we'd know what happened with the doll and it's creepy nursery rhyme. I'm telling you, this movie gave me nightmares after watching it. That rhyme just sends chills up my spine.... This movie rocks.... definitely pick up a copy and watch it. How could anyone say it "shouldn't even be used as toilet paper"..... I guess they just don't appreciate a good cheezy 80's horror movie.
