REVIEWS:





"In 'Poltergeist'...[Steven Spielberg] has come up with a marvelously spooky ghost story that may possibly scare the wits out of very small children. .... 'Poltergeist' is like a thoroughly enjoyable nightmare, one that you know that you can always wake up from, and one in which, at the end, no one has permanently been damaged. It's also witty in a fashion
that Alfred Hitchcock might have appreciated."

-- Excerpt from The New York Times; June 4, 1982







"Poltergeist is an effective thriller, not so much because of the special effects, as because [Director Tobe] Hooper and [Producer Steven] Spielberg have tried to see the movie's strange events through the eyes of the family members, instead of just standing back and letting the special effects overwhelm the cast along with the audience."

-- Roger Ebert; June 1, 1982
