Editorial Reviews

Craig T. Nelson, JoBeth Williams, Heather O'Rourke. The Freelings have relocated to Arizona, far from the horror they experienced in their old house. But it's not long before the evil spirits find little Carol Anne. 1986/color/90 min/PG-13.

5.0 out of 5 stars the nightmare continues... January 11, 2002
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Freelings are chased by poltergeists again. June 10, 2005
Format:VHS Tape
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. He died from stomach cancer, September 14, 1985, after filming his scenes.

Poltergeist 2 had the thrills and the dramatic impact as did the first, but with added terror. Steven Speilberg tends to water down horror for a younger audience, and his absence from this film gave it that true horrifying feeling of evil. Julian Beck's character as the malevolent Reverend Kane sticks in my mind. There is not an actor in Hollywood now or in the future that could pull off such a convincing and utterly evil character. This film, as the first, shows how a loving family can overcome even the most trying of circumstances, and life truly never ends. I highly recommend this film to anyone interestd in the supernatural. This is a very good movie, superbly directed, beautifully scored, and perfectly acted out. It is one of the last real-to-life supernatural thrillers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good parts and bad parts November 3, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I think that this sequel, Poltergeist II, had good and bad parts. First of all, it had almost a creepier effect than the first (it wasn't better though) and there were some scarier things (Reverend Kane, the worm, the chainsaw) and had good actors. However, I found the ending to be cornier than anything I ever saw. They're floating around in some kind of a white-heaven-twister thing... I don't know. Good movie except the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars "God is in his holy temple!" January 24, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
A brilliant sequel which is almost as good as the first. Preacher Kane (Julian Beck) is a really mean baddie and Taylor the Indian is comical. I liked the very supernatural ending. This is still a very clever film and any fans of POLTERGEIST should get this.

4.0 out of 5 stars God is in His Holy Temple July 19, 2012
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.
