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 »

I enjoyed it for what it was
27 May 2000 | by (Hollyweird) – See all my reviews

As with any Umberto Lenzi film I wasn't expecting much but with "Ghosthouse" I was pleasantly surprised. Where else can you see such an off-the-wall haunted house movie with a demonic little girl, an evil clown doll, Harvey Keitel look alike Donald o' Brien as a slasher maniac, acid milk baths, flying stuffed animals, bizarre nursery rhymes, a disappearing Doberman Pincer, zombies, and other bits of general weirdness? Just wish the acting and storyline wasn't so poor.
