First off, I think the title had something to do with house?!
My cousin and I watched this movie as kids i think in the early 90s.
the only few things I remember from the movie:
Kids go to abandoned house and there is a scene where they are out back and there is an ax in a stump.
Light bulbs swell and explode
the ending of the movie: cops came to the house and are in the basement and hear thump thump thump, there is a body in the washer or dryer.
