House 3 (III): The Horror Show (1989) Review

The enigma that is House III is something that has always plagued me. It’s something of a cult thing between my friends and I because I won a bet related to its existence. Yes, it does exist. It’s just not known as House III. It’s called The Horror Show and it was directed by James Isaac (Jason X) and stars two men that could easily fit in in respected, high budget films as well as low budget garbage. The men I speak of are Lance Henrikson, a personal favorite, and the late Brion James. Unfortunately, this is more towards the garbage end of the spectrum because the biggest scare is Brion James in a dress.
