Poltergeist II: The Other Side

Poltergeist II: The Other Side's IMDB Page

They're baaaack!

In this film we get to revisit the Freeling family now living at Diane's mother's house and trying to live as normally as they can after the events that took place in their former home. The thing is, Kane (we now have a name for the leader of the ghosts trying to be led into the light) really likes Carol Anne and isn't too keen on letting her get away so easily.

It's hard to believe that the only actor from the original film with any talent that they brought back was Craig T. Nelson, but be thankful that they did. He carries the picture single handedly through the sections that are not loaded with special effects. The special effects are pretty cool, though. Designed and produced by Boss Film Studios (Their film debut was Ghostbusters) they kept in step with the theme set in the original film pretty well (until the flying chainsaw attack). If you loved the original and you don't want to taint its image, maybe you should avoid this one at the local video store. If you want to watch it anyway, get some crackers because the family unity theme gets real cheesey.
