Poltergeist (1982)

To say that "Poltergeist" is not scary anymore would be an understatement; even "The Gate", a kiddie horror pic, was more frightening than this! I think the most appropriate word for it is "noisy"; skeletons keep popping up from all over the place and the heroes keep running away while screaming. It’s got some really spectacular effects, but a nonsensical and silly script, as well. Basically, the whole movie is one long excuse to showcase the effects and it succeeds in that department, but it has been praised so excessively over the years that you might expect something far superior to what you will finally get.


As a family moves into their new home, they notice strange events that mostly affect their young daughter.
