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 "La Casa 2" being the Italian titles for Sam Raimi's The Evil Dead (1981) and Evil Dead II (1987). See more »

great gory movie
22 July 2003 | by kita117See all my reviews

I really loved this movie. The first time I saw this movie, I was over my aunt's house. I still am wondering where my aunt placed this movie because I am trying to get it back to be able to watch it. The noise that the little girl's doll made was silly and funny, but overall the gore, the plot, and the scenery (of the haunted house especially) was just breathtaking. The movie may be a little boring to you at times but not a whole lot. The movie does look like it has a cheap setting because it is a foreign film, but it is a must-see and it is better than most american made gory films. My rating is 8.5 out of 10 stars.
