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.Read more ›

Good movie but not as good as the first. Her aunt portrays her sisters family in a terrible light and is down right cold hearted to her niece until the very end of the movie. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Jennifer K. Walsh
