Bill and Claire Martin have just moved into their new house with their newly combined family, but not everything is working out between all of the kids. Jessica, Bill's youngest, is about to celebrate her birthday, but the new bike her Dad bought her has been destroyed. At the last minute, Bill cleans up a dollhouse that he found in the shed at the back of the house. Bill's sister and her husband come to the party, and of course, they own an occult shop in town. Jessica falls ill right after she receives the dollhouse, so her aunt comes rushing in to assist with her "magic" to help her feel better.
Meanwhile Todd, Bill's oldest, and Jimmy, Claire's son, do nothing but fight, but Jimmy sucks and only cares about a mouse. I would pick on him too. Todd is mainly too worried about trying to screw his girlfriend Dana.
The dollhouse seems to come alive in a way. If something happens in the house then it happens for real. Jimmy's mouse gets loose and enters the house and claws under the toy bed. The mouse becomes huge and starts popping the bed up and down.
Jimmy starts to see his dead father come and visit. He wants Jimmy to kill Bill, and evens starts to dig a grave in the back yard. Zombie dad comes a calling and the kid thinks it's ok. Not!
The bad thing is that this movie is better than some of the other in the series. It's cheesy, but watchable once. It doesn't deserve multiple viewings. I forgot to add that the mother has sexual fantasies about her stepson. At least they are not blood related. This was not as much of a stretch, seeing the dollhouse is a replica of the Amityville house.
