All the films have great creepy scare factors. The quality of all the films, both in the video and audio departments are very good. Though it is advertised as a Triple Feature, there are four films featured.
The Amityville Horror and The Legend Of Hell House are both scary and worth the price of admission alone.
Poltergeist II, had potential to match the quality of the first movie, yet falls short due to apparent editing issues. The story is quite good. Though, the ending is slightly disappointing. Poltergeist III, is creepy and campy at the same time and is the weakest release in the Poltergeist trilogy.

You get 4 movies on DVD in this 3-disc set: Amityville Horror (2005 Remake), Legend of Hell House, Poltergeist II and Poltergeist III. All are worth watching. No extras are included in this set (it is bare-bones). However, 2 of these films don't have a Blu-Ray anyway so you aren't missing any new content anyway (previous releases were also devoid of bonus material). You are getting your money's worth in this value pack if you want more than one film even though it has no extras. My personal favorites are Poltergeist II and III. Both were under-appreciated classic horror films with Heather O'Rourke.
Poltergeist II features the same cast as the original with a couple of new characters: the unforgettable Rev. Henry Kane and Will Sampson as Taylor. Both died shortly after filming. We were terrified during Poltergeist II at the release but that film doesn't hold up well now. It does have some excellent acting and creepy moments. Fans may hate me but Part 2 was horrifying at the time but seems to drag now. Poltergeist III doesn't get much respect but it is an entertaining movie with Heather O'Rourke returning with "the guy from Alien and the chick from Robocop". Tom Skerritt and Nancy Allen both seem to be alive and well. We aren't joking about the Poltergeist Curse. Poltergeist III is lightly regarded but is actually quite good. It has two returning cast members playing "Carol-Anne" and "Tangina". Though Kip Wentz, Richard Fire and Heather O'Rourke never worked again (Wentz and Fire were hilarious together in their scenes) I prefer Part 3 to Part 2. The third film uses mirrors, smoke and ice fairly well for its era. I admit there are some annoying and illogical scenes with coffee cups, dumb teenagers and pool parties. The acting and audio seem off but the movie was filmed that way.Read more ›
Actually I bought this DVD for the legend of hell house (not easy to find).. In my opinion it was one of the most authentic "scary" flicks of it's time with a very good and surprising ending.. That Poltergeist II & III and Amityville Horror (all three worth a watch) was also included became that 'little' extra that made the price very reasonable.. Fast delivery. Recommended to any horror flicker.
