Review of Poltergeist

Overall Rating

THEY'RE HERE!!! Ah, good ol' Poltergeist... You know how sometimes good things happen... just because? Because the stars were aligned and stuff like that? That's exactly what we have here. I mean... it's a movie that was written by a man behind E.T. (with a help from the guys who co-wrote Death Hunt) and directed by the twisted mind behind The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.

Sounds pretty weird and random, and... in a way it is. I mean, it's a pretty basic and straightforward story with nothing really special in it, and sometimes it may even feel forced. And yet... it's pretty awesome, really. Why? Well, because it comes... with that certain signature atmosphere we all know and love.

Tobe Hooper was able to add some spookiness to it, while you can clearly see some Spielberg's magic here. This movie captures everything that was great about all of those spooky books for kids from back in the days. And the perfect cast? It makes it all special. It's one of the very few movies, in which you can see Heather O'Rourke (unfortunately, the girl died soon after finishing Poltergeist III) and... let's just say that even though she's only seven years old here and it was her very first movie, the entire franchise ended up being all about her.

You know how very often horror movies end up being all about their female leads? Like it was about Nightmare on Elm Street, or Aliens? Well, this seven years old girl took all the spotlight here by being incredibly cute and awesome.

One way or another, Poltergeist isn't a movie you watch for complicated story. It's the movie you watch for an amazing atmosphere that combines Mr. Spielberg's magic with a slight aftertaste of horror, with a cute little girl taking the lead. What's not to love?
