Though its special features have apparently crossed over into the next spectral plane, the image of the 25th anniversary Poltergeist DVD will have you gazing into the light.

"Stay away from the light, Carol Anne!" Yikes, anything you say just get me outta the damn TV. Remastered from the original source material and looking better than ever with high resolution video and sound, this is the version to own even with it being 25

| Original Score: 9/10

This 25th anniversary disc needn't have been the pointless milestone it is.
