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 Paul comes to save Martha where Henrietta was buried... on her grave it says that she was born in 1938 and died in 1967. That would make her 29 when she died, but as the story says she died when she was eleven. See more »

Suprisingly chilling

I expected this film to be nothing more than your very average 80s horror flick but it was much more.Admittedly the acting was well below par but the shocks certainly weren't.Any film encorporating clowns in my opinion can't help but be sinister there was no exception here the clown was terrificly scary,and the little girl dressed in white just added to it.The film also boasted some rather gruesome deaths especially the guillotine!This movie certainly surpassed its expectations.Deserves to be seen.
