The third installment in the haunted-house saga discards any pretense of being based on actual events in order to provide the requisite cheap thrills sought by audiences during the short-lived 3-D revival of the early '80s. When a skeptical reporter (Tony Roberts) with a penchant for debunking phony psychic hoaxes moves into the Long Island house to disprove its nightmarish legend, he and his family are set upon by all manner of supernatural beasties.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"There is hardly anything original about the picture."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"It so utterly fails to articulate its threat that the scary stuff presumably facilitated by everyone's moronic behavior turns into a running joke."
‑ Rob Vaux,
"3-D, the stamp of greatness..."
‑ Stefan Birgir Stefansson,
"...thoroughly bereft of any interesting ideas, as evidenced by the film's absurdly underwhelming climax..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Better than the first two, but apart from the 3-D novelty not much"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"To pad things out characters argue over story-lines from previous Amityville movies, while for 3-D purposes, wasps, furniture and minor players are hurled in our direction at varying intervals."
‑ , Time Out
"Unlike the first two Amityville titles, this one makes no claim to authenticity, but such honesty doesn't save it from being a terrible movie."
‑ Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing
"Replaces derivation with gimmicks."
‑ Nick Schager, Slant Magazine
"Entirely flat, despite the gimmicky effects"
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"The cast is good, but the characters are idiots."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"Veteran director Richard Fleischer demonstrates a keen understanding of the potentials of the 3-D gimmick here, but there is little else to recommend this dull retread."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"...presented in standard 2-D format and does not require special glasses to view. However, I don't see how wearing them can possibly hurt."
‑ Christopher Null,
"Works as well as a 3-D sequel of a sequel (starring Tony Roberts in the lead role) can posibly work. And that ain't well."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
