Better then the third movie
5 September 2010 | by atinderSee all my reviews

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

Now that stuff of the house, is now being for sale and that includes the Lamp that as evil force in it.

two women then end up buying the lamp, so she send it 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, alice tells Nacy thinks this is all kids doing, Nacy is also worried about Jessica is talking to Lamp, thinking she talking her dad, who 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 never gets 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
