Goofs

After the opening credits as Mr. Caswell escorts Melanie and John into the front door, you discover that the perspective view of the foyer in the background of the doorway is fake. There is a gap between the prop background and the top of the door frame where the side of a staircase can be seen ascending in a different direction than the one seen later in the film. See more »

Enter the gateway to hell
10 February 2014 | by veryape-887-913905See all my reviews

A new dimension in ultimate evil has been added to the story to what has probably become the world's most notorious haunted house in America.

A magazine writer's investigation into a séance turns to horror when an abandoned well beneath the basement floor turns out to be the gateway to hell.

This film starred: Tony Roberts, Tess Harper & Meg Ryan

In my opinion this wasn't one of best entries in the Amityville film series, not the worst but no where near the best. It had a bad plot about the gateway to hell being a well in the basement. 93 minutes wasted in my opinion, it had a couple of entertaining scenes but nothing special.

**/***** Poor.
