Trivia

This film is actually the third movie in the "House" series. When the unrelated The Horror Show (1989) adopted the title "House 3" in both the UK and Australia, the producers of this film opted to call it 'House IV' to avoid confusion. See more »

Burke: Roger you're making a big mistake.

Hokey, but fits in well
18 November 1998 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

I really like this series. This House movie contains less action &/or horror than the previous two (whatever happened to House III?), but is still fun. I love the fact that the daughter is paralysed and in a wheelchair -- yet Mom manages to not only get her into the Victorian house (not ground level by any means), but also into her upstairs bedroom without any visible lifts or elevators. Still, this movie does manage to have a good (not great, but good) storyline and fits well into the series. BTW - William Katt's character shouldn't be the same as in the first House. It takes place way too soon for this to be his second wife and second child and the first son to be gone.
