Bryan Lienesch69 - While it ups the horror ante from the original, it is almost a story point by story point facsimile of the original. Which begs the obvious question...why would you not just watch the original?

Sober Film Critic James Brown43 - Poltergeist just happens to be the very brand I associate with marathons on Syfy back in the day, not with a franchise ready to be brought back to life on the big screen. Unfortunately for me and for plenty of other moviegoers, I was right.
