Carol Anne has been sent to a special school for gifted but emotionally disturbed children whilst living with her aunt and uncle. The Preacher of Pain is still trying to lure her to the other side, so diminutive medium Tangina stands guard to protect her. Heather O'Rourke, the young star, died tragically during filming.

Of course this the third and final installment, isn't as good as the originals, but at least we are in a new location. That location is a high rise building- where seemingly our characters live, work and play.
Young Carol Anne is now with her mothers family as a sort of vacation, to get away from her haunting past. But alas that past is going to catch up with her. She is aided by decent enough performances by Tom Skerrit and Nancy Allen.
What you will notice is the time that this film was made in 1987- everything is so wonderfully 80s, especially Allen with her hairdo and shoulder pads, but the interior of the building to Skeritts moustache, all 80s genu wine!
Part 3 isn't scary, but it is effective, and you can tell that the movie takes some risks, not going down the normal generic horror route. Indeed very little is wrong with the first half of the film- though unfortunetly the level does dip there on in.
Tragically Heather O'Rourke passed away before fiming could be completed, and the very final scene is not her. It seems that it was very right to finish the franchise at Part 3- O'Rourke was everything to this film and coupled with her passing and poor box office returns the films rightly ended here.
Here's a piece of trivia for you- how many times is the name Carol Anne mentioned in this film?
it was only made cause POLTERGEIST II was so successful
that MGM wanted to make more money on the franchise and make a 3rd sequel
regardless if the script was Good or bad
Heather O 'rourke was suffering terribly during filming her scenes
she died just after the film was released in Theaters 1989, very tragic
by this 3rd sequel the plot is very very average with some very Good acting in it
it's only Good for entertainment really that's it.
this new HD transfer that MGM has given the film does look and sound much much better than
the DVD release from over 10 years ago now
very clean clearer picture quality and the audio has been boosted for sure to a 5.1 master audio mix
but no, no extras at all, just the film,
maybe MGM thought no point wasting their time
to get interviews or a audio commentary done for this new blu-ray
it's anybody;s guess what the reason was why there's no extras again
cause there were none for the dvd release
the blu-ray is ABC regions, so it's for American,U.K. and AUS markets
so if your a fan of the Poltergeist series or just curious and havn't seen Poltergeist III yet
than get this new blu-ray release of the film
much better quality than the DVD release from many years ago
so you'll get better viewing experience from this new HD transfer of the film.
There's no extras at all, not even a audio commentary and the plot is very average
so i just gave this new blu-ray of the film just 3 stars cause of the picture quality
which is very Good better than the DVD release as i said.
So, what do we end up with? A film with a totally impotent villain, for one thing. Nate Davis is not nearly as effective as Julien Beck was, nor could anyone have been that they could afford. We also end up with lots of interesting but ultimately cheesy mirror FX. Gone, probably through budgetary constraints, are all the wonderful animated spirits and demons of the first two films, and instead we have half a dozen mirror tricks and far too many unconvincing frozen building effects. Although I seem to remember the director Gary Sherman actually saying the effects of the first two movies were cheesy and he wanted to avoid them!
As for the ending, which a lot of people seem to be confused by, it's probably best to remember that this film had to be finished without Heather O'Rourke, who died before the reshoots of the final scenes were complete. Many of the scenes had to be completed with doubles, which accounts for a large amount of the incoherence in the film.Read more ›
