I recently purchased both poltergeist 2 and 3 movies to go with the first I purchased. I remembered the movies vaguely and wanted to see them again after many years. Well, the stories are quite good in both poltergeist 2 and 3 but the magic just isn't like in the first for some reason. After seeing the sequels, it becomes somewhat redundant, the ghosts and undead want little Caroll-Ann. In the first movie, everything seems to be done logically and the story sticks together very well and the special effects for the time, quite good, quite elaborate.You can get genuinely scared because they make it seem possible. The sequels try to bring a creative twist to the first story but lack luster, the scary parts are actually quite boring sadly and lacked the magic and realism the first movie had.These movies are ok to watch but they are not the blockbuster the first movie was.
