Also known as Poltergeist 2: The Other Side (1986). Rated "PG-13". Running Time: 1 hour, 31 mins.
JoBeth Williams, Craig T. Nelson, Heather O'Rourke, Oliver Robins and Zelda Rubinstein return for this second film.
It has been four years since the Freelings were scared out of their Cuesta Verde home in Poltergeist [Blu-ray] (1982). As it turns out, the house sat on a lot where a cemetery used to be. They moved the cemetery, but not the bodies.
The Freelings now live with Diane's mother (Geraldine Fitzgerald) and the kids are glad to be with Grandma. The Freelings are hoping to claim money for the loss of their home. Diane (JoBeth Williams) is having a difficult time dealing with the phenomenon she experienced four years ago.
There is an unexpected death in the family and the poltergeists make a return to scare the Freeling family. It is Carol Anne (Heather O'Rourke) they are after again. Now evil spirit is in the physical form of a creepy preacher (Julian Beck).
Only one man can help them now, an indian shaman, Taylor (Will Sampson). He has already visited the old Cuesta Verde neighborhood and seen the cave where evil lurks under the Freelings old backyard. He offers his indian magic to help rid the family of the poltergeists. Zelda Rubinstein returns as "Tangina" too.
Also in the cast: John P. Whitecloud, Susan Peretz, Helen Boll.
It was great to see the outstanding ensemble cast from the first film together again.

Sad Note: The "poltergeist curse" happens again.
Julian Beck was very ill during his scenes in this film.

4 Stars = Classic

Way underrated sequel to the masterpiece, "Poltergeist."

This film in some ways, was a lot more terrifying than it's predecessor, especially in the character of one Reverend Henry Kane. Just about the creepiest character I can remember from any horror movie! The scene where he walks up to the house to see Carol Anne, is as eerie as they come. The tension of that scene is physically tangible, as he & Mr. Freeling (Craig T. Nelson) have a match of wills, as "Kane" tries to enter the house. Then he walks off & disappears! CREEPY! The scene at the outdoor mall is just about as creepy, as people walk right through "Kane," as he follows & talks to Carol Ann. Julian Beck as "Kane," looks like a walking skeleton with just skin, hair, & those malevolent huge eyes! Better casting has rarely been seen! Also of note, is the forboding music score that accompanies these scenes. They'd lose quite a bit of potency, without that menacing score.

Also of note, is where Mr. Freeling is finishing up a bottle of Quervo Gold tequila, & becomes possessed by "Kane", then vomiting "Kane" out, who was lurking like a Mescal grub at the bottom of the bottle! Then "Kane" crawling out from under the bed with no legs, vaguely looking human, then turning around & smiling. Ranks right up there with "Frank's" resurrection, from "Hellraiser, as one of the best in horror!"

Sadly, the ending killed the full potential of this film. It was if the movie ran out of ideas, & it did, abruptly! Still in retrospect, this film is a classic, & deserves to be reassessed 26 years later.

Format: VHS Tape
POLTERGEIST II-THE OTHER SIDE picks up the story of the afflicted Freeling family; still recovering from the abduction of little Carol Anne and the spirits that taunted them...
The nightmare has only begun. Now living with Diane Freeling's (JoBeth Williams) mother ( the late Geraldine Fitzgerald), the family tries to settle back into a normal life. A life that is interrupted by the arrival of the mysterious Kane (the late Julian Beck). The spirits of the dead have not yet given up their desire to possess Carol Anne (the late Heather O'Rourke) and the family must once again fight the demons. Called back to help, Tangina Barrons (Zelda Rubinstein) enlists the assistance of Taylor (the late Will Sampson) to clease the house.
Discovering another graveyard under the Grandmother's house, Diane and Carol Anne must confront the demons and help them cross over into the next astral plane...
Later followed by POLTERGEIST 3 which was released after Heather O'Rourke's untimely death.

"They're back!" The Freeling Family is far from safe after escaping from their haunted home in Cuesta Verde, California... The dark entity that controls the other spirits has come looking for Carol Anne, who he believes is their gateway back to Earth. With the aid of an Indian spirit guide, the Freelings must band together once more to defeat the forces of evil and win back their family! If POLTERGEIST painted the picture of the perfect American family, POLTERGEIST 2: THE OTHER SIDE shows us what happens when that family is torn apart. With their hopes and dreams diminished, the Freelings are forced to move in to Grandma's house, and Steve must return to selling vacuum cleaners to make ends meet. The psychological damage and financial stresses from their ghostly encounter has left the family in ruin, which is just where evil has the advantage to strike when they are at their weakest. Despite their hardships, we find that the bonds of love cannot be broken, and the Freelings are able to overcome their greatest trials yet. POLTERGEIST 2 dives into the history of the Cuesta Verde estate, revealing that the ghosts that haunt the area were the followers of a religious fanatic that drove his congregation to a horrible death. Julian Beck makes his series debut as the Reverand Kane, a terrifying personage of evil incarnate. Craig T. Nelson and JoBeth Williams return along with Zelda Rubinstein, Oliver Robins, and Heather O'Rourke as well, and while their is a bit more overacting than before, it is great to see these familiar characters continue their battle, together. Nelson's first confrontation with Reverand Kane as Steve Freeling provides one of the most powerful moments in the entire series.Read more ›
