On entering they encounter the ghostly figure of a young girl and a sinister-looking clown who then proceed to kill off the group in the most gruesome of ways. Umberto Lenzi's film has some of the goriest scenes made for the haunted-house horror genre.

The story is as old as the ghosthouse itself. The acting is so bad as to be laughable and every deathscene in the movie you will probably have seen a dozen times before.
So why do I find it so good ?
Well, top of the list is the music. There is no other horror film I have seen ( and I have seen quite a few in my time ) where the music adds such a creepy sense of dread and foreboding. It sends a shiver up my spine every time I hear it.
Secondly, the film has an evil doll ( in the form of a freaky clown ) that really chilled me to the bone. It puts Chucky to shame even though for the most part it is inannimate and doesnt utter a word.
Thirdly, the thrill and scare elements havent been lost, and those are surely the most important factors within the horror genre. There are no cute hollywood one-liners to give comic relief and destroy the building tension. The death/chill scenes are handeled and directed excellently, with plenty of variety too.
What other film offers you the old mirrors exploding in your face routine, a rather nasty "accident" with an unplugged electric fan, a dangerous guillotine in the attic ( no home should be without one ! ), flying easter bunnies ( yes, I see you tremble in fear )and boiling wax in the basement. Plus the most talentless actors ever to grace the screen, music that sounds like a dwarf on acid and the despicable clown from hell.
Go on - Treat yourself !
The music is great, different from every other horror movie, some of the effects aren't great, and the acting isn't that great, but that doesn't really matter, you'll still enjoy it.
It's also a lot better than some of the recent hollywood movies !!!
Also check out Lara Wendel who plays Martha, she's hot, and reminds me a bit of Maria Sharapova!
Ghosthouse really is a trashy movie- horrible acting, over-the-top gore scenes, charracters waiting to be picked off, less-than-amazing special effects, yet at the same time, it is all these aspects which make it such an important movie.Read more ›
As I said, it's great that Vipco are releasing uncut euro-horrors like this, but I couldn't say this one is a keeper.
