I re-watched this film recently because my loser boyfriend told me he had never seen it. So i said 'What the hell!' and then put it on.

Ok, so. First things first LOL @ SPECIAL EFFECTS! Don't get me wrong, for the time it was made those were some awesome effects probably the best anyone had seen before, but looking at it now it makes the film +5 on the cheesy scale.

Over-Rated Silliness

When it comes right down to it, "Poltergeist" is pure silliness, starring adult protagonists who soon prove themselves to be TOO STUPID TO LIVE. The problem is not merely that is 'out-dated,' although it is. "Psycho" was outdated, but it had a good story and a good villain.

I'm not impressed with "Poltergeist"'s story at all, and the villains (the ghosts haunting the house and ul... read more

A young family is visited by ghosts in their home. At first the ghosts appear friendly, moving objects around the house to the amusement of everyone, then they turn nasty and start to terrorize the family before they "kidnap" the youngest daughter.

5 Star Horror (27 movies items)

"They're heeeeere! I think the terror of Poltergeist is the children's terror. Being young and afraid of objects that seem to be something else. And in Poltergeist, they really are. Clowns! • Most well-known scene: Carol Anne and the tv. • Trivia: Heather O'Rourke (Carol Anne) among several others has now passed away from untimely deaths. "

Movies...Most Memorable Movie quotes (43 movies items)

"'They're here...'Heather O'Rourke spoke these two timeless words when her character Carol Anne announced the arrival of supernatural monsters in the 1982 movie "Poltergeist." You might hear someone imitate the line upon the arrival of unwanted guests."

"Re-watch - Oct. 1st Earlier this year the kiddo kept asking me to watch Stranger Things, and last month we caught up through the third season. Since she made it through that with no complaints, I figure she's leveled up enough to be exposed to more horror movies. Therefore this month when she's with me we'll be watching things together that I think she'll appreciate. I pulled a stack from my collection, and she decided to kick off the month with Poltergeist. It's been 8 years now since I last"
