This 25th Anniversary Deluxe Edition provides an excellent transfer of one of the best films in its genre. As for the extras, well, they seem to be designed for folks who think the genre is documentary ... you won't learn anything about the making of the film, but you'll see an updated version of the investigators of the paranormal portrayed in it. Too bad Tangina's not here.

Wanted a copy of this movie for some time now as this is one of my favorite movies. Watched it one evening and was disapointed to see that a scene was cut in the middle of the charactors dialogue. No effort was even made to be discrete about it. Completely obvious. Terribly dissapointing.

Probably the best horror movie I have ever seen. Saw it years ago when it first came out on VHS and it is even better on Blu-Ray.

This was the first horror movie I saw as a child and helped develop my love of the genre. My 13 year old son wanted to see it so I purchased this copy. The quality was fine and it arrived quickly. Very happy!

By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Feb. 23 2014
Format: DVD
Ever wonder where all the jokes about haunted buildings being built over old burial grounds came from? Well, it was "Poltergeist."

This was the movie that not only immortalized the "They're heeeeeeere!" line, but tapped into the spookiness of everyday things -- the closet, the underside of a bed, a staticky TV or a closed door. Some of the special effects are a bit dated, but it gives you the feeling of being a young child who genuinely believed that a hellmouth exists in your closet. Or was that just me?

The Freeling family lives the perfect suburban life. Steve (Craig T. Nelson) is a real-estate agent and Diane (JoBeth Williams) is a housewife; they have a lovely new home, a golden retriever and three kids -- teenage Dana (Dominique Dunne), Robbie (Oliver Robins) and barely-out-of-preschool Carol-Anne (Heather O'Rourke). All is lovely and well.

Then... weird things start happening. Chairs start moving by themselves. Specters whirl out of the TV. Earthquakes. Then a tree smashes its way into the house and abducts Robbie -- and while his parents rescue him, Carol-Anne is sucked into a vortex in her bedroom closet. I swear to you, none of this is even slightly as funny as it sounds.

Now Carol-Anne is missing, and though her family can hear her occasionally, they have no idea where she is or how to find her. They call on a parapsychologist, Dr. Lesh (Beatrice Straight), who is totally out of her element. So she brings in an otherworldly psychic (Zelda Rubinstein), who may be their only hope of getting Carol-Anne back.

"Poltergeist" is an odd movie.

A Tobe Hopper movie, produce by Spielberg, good actors,if not great. Of course it always depends of your perspective. Do you prefer Full CGI effects construction with no story telling or a well construct special effect with great camera montage and a scenario not so badly writen, a little cliche nowadays, but still hiding some gems. This remastered edition may lack of content though, but that's pretty much the only real disapointing point we can note. This is a 80's classic and probably the most influencial movie towards parapsychology and ghost portrayal till this day. Let's hope the upcoming remake won't screw anything it stood for and if it does, tries to go through all the way to make his point unforgetable and interestering.

By bernie TOP 50 REVIEWER on Nov. 21 2013
Format: Blu-ray
Nothing like giving older films the Blu-ray treatment and allowing a second or third life.

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.

Format: DVD
When two of the greatest directors, horror master Tobe Hooper (creator of "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" & "Salem's Lot") and filming genius, Steven Spielberg (creator of "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" & "Schindler's List") came together, the blockbuster smash-hit, "Poltergeist" was born and blew audiences away worldwide! A classic combo of epic proportions that brought us one of the most horrifying, imaginative, and powerful films ever put on the BIG SCREEN!
Originally released in 1982, Heather O' Rourke plays the main role as loveable (and cute!) Carol-Anne, while JoBeth Williams, Craig T. Nelson (leading star of the 80s T.V. sitcom hit, "Coach"), & Zelda Rubinstein would probably be considered the supporting actors. It is the most original and creative ghost story since "The Exorcist" (1973) & "The Amityville Horror" (1979) about the Freeling family who lives in the beautiful California suburbs. (which is where the movie was filmed) Carol-Anne somehow has a link with the supernatural via the family television set and soon strange and funny things begin to happen: a large earthquake strikes the community, chairs begin moving on their own, and the family dog begins barking for no apparent reason. (Or so it looks from OUR point of view!)
However, the phenomenon soon turns into a terrifying nightmare of unspeakable horrors: the mysterious tree outside in the back yard comes to life and nearly swallows Carol-Annes' brother, Robbie whole; and Carol-Anne is sucked into a parallel demension (the afterlife) through her bedroom closet. Now, it's up to a group of professionals in the study of the paranormal and a gifted elderly psychic to get her back!
