I really don’t know if it’s from the '80s, but I think so. It’s about a family that moves in a house and there are three orbs that are trapped there. One is evil and won’t let the other two leave. If I’m remembering right, they're mother and son.
Could this be the 1986 Disney movie Mr. Boogedy? I originally thought of Mr Boogedy because of the family moving to a new house with three spirits (not appearing as orbs) with one of them being evil and preventing the other two from leaving.
Below is the original TV intro for the movie.
This is possibly, The Haunted, a 1991 TV movie.
The plot summary from Wikipedia identifies three spirits:
The Smurl family move into their new home on Chase Street only to find that it is plagued with three spirits and a demon. The demon wants to destroy their family and they are constantly desperate until they find the Warren family to get rid of them.
The spirits don't appear as orbs, exactly, but they do appear as uncertain, shadowy blurs on a number of occasions.
