What Other Items Do Customers Buy After Viewing This Item?
A policeman is relentlessly pursued by a homicidal maniac who he helped send to the electric chair. It seems capital punishment is no deterrent, and however odious the crimes the psychopath performed before his death, they are nothing compared to what he has planned for his nemesis now.

I'm not averse to occasional humourous dialogue in horror films but it should remain in perspective and not go overboard.
Another thing I liked better in House III, is that the villain is a serial killer (Max Jenke) who is able to manipulate McCarthy's reality even after he has been fried in the electric chair (through his spirit or ghost) To me, it's a much better idea than having walking skeletons, weird dinosaurs and the like. Although the horror film genre is not my favourite, I would say House III is one of the better horror films that I have watched.
So bad that you can't help but enjoy; this movie (and the other House movies) is a classic piece of 1980's horror. Not recommended for people who can't help but criticise "terrible visual effects"; considering the limitations of specialist effects at the time this movie was made, it's actually very well done.
However, don't go into it expecting to be frightened or gripping the edge of your seat in anticipation; unless you're easily afflicted with fear, House is more humorous than it ever was scary. Yet, for serious horror genre nuts, this might be a disappointment...but it's certainly an experience you must have (like trying marmite for the first time or taking a night to sit and watch the entire Star Wars Trilogy from start to finish).
