Poltergeist (BD Book)
"Theyre here," - seeming almost whimsical at first, playing stack-the- chair games in the Freelings kitchen. Then things turn darker. A storm erupts, a tree attacks and little Carol Anne Freeling is whisked into a spectral void. As her family confronts horrors galore and fights to bring the youngster back, something else is here too: a new benchmark in Hollywood ghost stories. Producers Steven Spielberg and Frank Marshall and director Tobe Hooper head the elite scream team of this classic whose nerve-jangling effects include floating phantasms, the fiercest monster ever to pop out of a closet and an entire house collapsing into nothingness. Welcome to Home Sweet Haunted Home.]]>

A friend of mine worked on Jurassic Park as a PA and got a lot of inside scuttle and one of the discussions was about Poltergeist and an inside long term Spielberg production crew member confirmed that this was a Steven Spielberg film in all but name.
And as far as I'm concerned it's a must buy for any Spielberg fan especially if you love his first 5-6 films more than any of the others.
And this Blu-ray looks magnificent. I've always loved this movie and the digibook is a great way to have this on the shelf, the other thing is just how wonderful and new the image is. I'm just waiting for 1941 and The Sugarland Express to be released on Blu-ray and the very best Spielberg films will all be out. Sugarland Express, 1941, Jaws, Close Encounters, Raiders Of The Lost Ark, Poltergeist and E.T. I count as his all time best films.
Many scary scenes, and thoughts, to fill your dreams at night.
Agoura Hills, Ca. May be a normal Suburb, with a burial ground relocated.
Now watch the ghosts come inside, to stay the night.

Without hesitation, yes. I've seen this film probably 15 times, had the VHS, then the DVD. But the Blu-ray knocks out of the park. On my 46" Samsung screen, it was like the first time I saw it in the theatre. I cannot overstate the presence or the quality of the transfer. It was an act of love and artistry.
DGA records Tobe Hooper as the director of this film, and the controversy lingers. The end is pure Hooper, wildly funny excess, shocks, extreme closeups of faces in terror. But the best of the film is vintage Spielberg: the lighting, the looks of awe as the camera moves in or out. This is one of my favorite films, and to see it so brilliantly translated to high definition is a great delight.
The Freeling family live in a cozy suburb. They are not alone. They live with an old tree that loves tasty children and an assortment of TV people. Their young daughter Carol Anne Freeling goes for a visit beyond the pale. This is just the beginning.
The movie is a classic; many of the things we know about Poltergeists actual came from this movie.
My favorite scene is when they move into a motel and jettison the Twanky.
If you are not familiar with a Twanky, It is more of a TV that has a tendency to follow you here and there.
