Synopsis by Robert Firsching
This mediocre occult horror film begins with a death-row prologue in which Father George (David Brandon) reads the last rites to Bette (Mary Coulson) a condemned child-murderess and Satanist who vows to drag him to Hell. Pursued by visions of Bette's victims and fighting the evil within himself, George becomes a transient alcoholic. He gets a chance at redemption, however, when he helps Father Peter (Gene LeBrock) and his family fight evil in their new house, which is the gateway to Hell. Little attention has been paid to internal logic, as the major antagonists are desiccated New England witches, despite the Louisiana-set story. Derivative to an extreme, La Casa 5 contains elements borrowed wholesale from numerous, better horror films such as Poltergeist, L'Aldila, The Exorcist and The Amityville Horror.
