Journalists John and Melanie pretend to be a married couple and attend a seance by the deceitful Caswells to speak to their son who allegedly died in a fire. The fraud is exposed and the Caswells exposed. John Baxter becomes interested in the location of the necromancy: the mysterious Amityville house. He buys it from the owner, Clifford Sanders, who shortly thereafter dies mysteriously in the house. As a result, there are inexplicable and uncanny events.
The film was shot using the ArriVision 3-D film process and had to be converted for the television and video version. This eliminates the most interesting aspects of the film for today's viewer.
Meg Ryan, who was still unknown at the time, played a supporting role as a friend of John Baxter's daughter Susan.
"A bland infusion of a well-known horror film, originally compiled to a few 3-D effects, which, due to the uninspired direction and the listless actors, bores rather than spreads horror."
