Five people spend the night in an abandoned haunted house in Amityville, Long Island and soon find themselves terrorized by assorted ghosts, venomous insects and ghostly spirits.

Marvin and Debbie buy the house. They renovate with the help of three friends: Frank, Bill and Abigail. The former housekeeper, Mrs Moriarty, is murdered. A priest had been murdered at the house twelve years earlier when the house was a rectory. At the end, Frank is possessed by the curse, causing him to murder Mrs. Moriarty (by pushing her from the top of a flight of stairs), Marvin and Bill. He tried to kill Debbie but he failed, and eventually, with the help of Abigail, Debbie kills Frank, and the two women are saved.

  • Production

    The film was loosely based around Hans Holzer's book The Amityville Curse. The movie is unusual for featuring a completely different haunted house and a different background than the rest of the series.

    Even though the setting of the film is supposed to be in Amityville, it is not actually 112 Ocean Avenue, the setting for the previous Amityville films. The house used here is a different house. This film has a plot line and back-story completely unique to this film and is in no way connected to the previous films. Although some fans believed that the house is linked to 112 Ocean Avenue through the tunnel from the first two films. A brief reference is made to the DeFeo murders and to the town's supernatural history.


    It was made in 1989 and released to video in May 1990.
