I'm not a big fan of haunted house movies, but this is one of the better ones. Mostly due to the fact that it's prodecuer, a Mr. Steven Speilberg, may have, um... actually secretly directed the movie himself. I don't find it to be particularly scary (except for that scene with the fucking clown doll), but it's fun and contains a lot of cool special effects. I hadn't seen Poltergeist since I was a kid, so it was fun to go back and revisit it. It's too blockbuster-y to be a great horror movie, but it does entertain.
