Better then the third movie
5 September 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A number of priest go to this house and get evil force out of the house, one of the priest get hurts and see that evil force as go into lamp.

Now that stuff of the house is now being for sale and that includes the Lamp that evil as been force into and two women then end up buying the lamp so she send to her sister for her birthday.

The lamp get to her sister Alice Leacock house and on that same day Alice Leacock Alice's daughter, Nancy Evans and her 3 kids Amanda, Brian and Jessica come to stay and i can not wait to open the package.

Soon odd thing start to happen in house and Alice tells Nacy that this is all kids doing, Nacy is also worried about Jessica is talking to Lamp think it her dad you passed away before.

Meanwhile the priest is out of hospital and trying to track down the lamp and but time is running out fast, will it make in time to save the family before evil force takeover yet another house.

This is movie is really good, much better then the third, this movie can a get a bit silly at times but it works well with the rest of the movie, movie get boring, there is always something to keep you entertained.

One of the better movies in the series I will give this movie 6 out of 10
