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 "Psycho" was outdated, but it had a good story and a good villain.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

Unforgettable weirdness

One of the weirdest horror films I've ever seen,feel like mixing of family drama-comedy with horror/sci-fi supernatural, it sometimes scary, sometimes hilarious, sometimes dramatic, sometimes ridiculous, sometimes silly, weird weird weird....
it's a horror film that almost looks like children film,and I don't know why...in the end , it's almost moves me to tear, I feel nostalgic-melancholic... 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.

"Poltergeist (1982) Mirni san americke porodice bice uznemiren cudnim aktivnostima u novom prigradskom naselju. Kroz djecije i roditeljske oci osjecamo prisustvo bica bez oblika. Hooper pazljivo gradeci dotice sve coskove jedne prosjecne porodice i upravo iz ljuljanja temelja stabilnosti prosjecne zadovoljne familije proizvodi podlogu za paranormalni horor rasplet. Ono sto ne vidis ne znas odakle ti prijeti. "

Slant’s 100 Greatest Horror Films – 2018 Edition (100 movies items)

"Tobe Hooper is officially credited for having directed Poltergeist, but it’s co-scripter Steven Spielberg’s fingerprints that are all over this dark-mirror image of E.T. and Close Encounters of a Third Kind, about unseen spirits tormenting a suburban family. It’s structured as an escalating series of reveals, from the frisson elicited by inexplicably mobile furniture on up to third-act hysteria derived from birth imagery, child peril, and the eternal creep factor of video snow in a dark ro"
