Product Description

Part II: Communing with the Dead

From Amazon.co.uk

It’s been a long time coming, but at last the digitally remastered version of the original 1982 horror movie has arrived. Tobe Hooper, the director of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, teamed up with family-oriented producer Steven Spielberg to make Poltergeist, about a haunted suburban home in a development very much like the Arizona one in which Spielberg was raised. (Because it came out the same summer as Spielberg's E.T., it was tempting to see both movies as representing Spielberg's ambivalent feelings about childhood in suburbia. One was a fantasy, the other a nightmare.) Spielberg also co-wrote the screenplay, which taps into primal, childlike fears of monsters under the bed, monsters in the closet, sinister clown faces, and all manner of things that go bump in the night. At first, some of the odd happenings in the house are kind of funny and amusing, but they grow gradually creepier until the film climaxes in a terrifying special-effects extravaganza when five-year-old Carole Anne (Heather O'Rourke) is kidnapped by the spooks and held hostage in another dimension. Though not nearly as frightening as Hooper's magnum opus, or the original A Nightmare on Elm Street, which came along two years later, Poltergeist is one of the smartest and most entertaining horror pictures of its time. --Jim Emerson

Absolutely LOVE it.

*Potential Spoilers?*

Creepiest thing though is definitely the demented laughter of children at the end of the credits - I wasn't creeped out until that point, ha! (Did you also see on the Trivia about the real skeletons?!).

Weird to think this could never happen today - in an age of digital TV, you no longer get static - knowing that is about the only reason I'm going to be able to sleep tonight.

GENIUS.

Classic, iconic horror film - it has this status for a reason. I love the way this film lulls you into a false sense of security and then scares the hell out of you. Really great - spielberg really hit the nail on the head with this. the dog is accurate in everyway too - the opening scene of it stealing food made me laugh so much but again its just comforting you before everything goes to hell.

Superb blu ray transfer to a great film. Very speilberg. 3 kids. One a teen. Dog. Toddler girl. Fun. Great practical effects, slick editing. Product placement. Marvel, Nike, Star Wars. Special effects look a bit dated. A little satire on greed and commercialism.
