Poltergeist (1982) - Donation Bonus

Originally Released May 10, 2011

It's heeeeere! Arnie, Stuart, and Marjorie's review of Poltergeist! This 1982 horror classic from Steven "Jaws" Spielberg and Tobe "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" Hooper comes a film that made ghosts cool again and instilled a deep fear of clowns into many children of the 80's. It's one of Stuart's all time favorite films, but does it hold up almost 30 years later? And can a PG rated horror film truly be scary?
