    After seeing this one years ago, my kids had to be told it was actually fake and called POULTERPUPPY. They slept soundly. If you want to understand it better, watch the DEXTER's LAB program episode FILET OF SOUL, almost the funniest homage and satire ever done as a cartoon.

    Something Wicked Scary Comes Home

    poltergeist is quite the genuine horror thriller. it pulls u inside its devious mind like the little girl being sucked into the white noise of the television portal. the characters are believable & the suspence hits u stone cold like a heavyweight boxer's right jab. poltergeist is certainly one of the most influential supernatural movies of its generation. if u are a believer like me, the storyline weaves & winds from a subtle to extreme haunting. this is not some hokey, artificial flick that serves as popcorn entertainment. u will be as scared from the moment imagination serves as your guide to the climax. wasn't there a sequel tainted by tragedy? yes that's right. don't mess with the spirit world. poltergeist is well written as well as a real scare. today's horror movies are more gory & apply violence as the main tool of shock therapy. the 80's had alot of substance, style, & originality as well as bad hair daze. luckily, this movie adds to the zeitgeist effect of that decade without the kitsch & soft cheese. anyhow, go return to this movie. you will remember it well. besides, who says there's no such thing as ghosts? maybe u need some sensitivity training. poltergeist will shake your norms & rattle your soul.

    My favorite horror film.

    ''Poltergeist'' is my favorite horror film for a number of reasons. One is the acting. The parents are excellently protrayed, and the children are not annoying. 5-year-old Heather O'Rourke is really so beautiful and sweet that I wish she were my own child. This film is also very scary because it taps into many parents' worst fear: losing a child. It's quite intense for a PG rating [no PG-13 rating existed in 1982]. Steven Spielberg sure knows how to make an intense, emotional experience of a movie, and ''Poltergeist'' is just that.

    Scary, emotional and down right great.

    Even though this was directd by Tobe Hooper it is still in my mind a Steven Spielberg film. It is great scary stuff and the Speicial effects are wonderful.
