Those pesky spirits from the underworld just keep on buggin' the Freelings....does anybody care? Well not so much, but if you've seen the first two you may as well see this one too (even if it's vastly inferior to the others). This time Carol Anne is living with her Aunt & Uncle in an apartment building. Mr. Reverend Ghostypants finds her again and bothers her in her new surroundings. Will the psychic Tangina be able to save her this last and hopefully final time? Apparently Heather O'Rourke (the little girl) died before this was released and they wanted to shelve it, but MGM put too much money into it so they released it anyhow (the ending is shot with a stand in even). It's certainly not a fitting ending to the franchise as it's really more like a remake in a different surroundings with the same characters, but if you want more, here it is!
