so Poltergeist is a horror film from the 80's that was directed by Tobe Hooper and Produced by Steven Speilberg which would have made me think that they would have made a better movie.
This is often regarded as a horror classic or maybe even one of the best and i have to say i strongly disagree. Well it's a flim about ghost possesion and trying to drive a ghost out of a house and all that and i guess thats what it is.
I just thought it was extremely corny like the part when the tree goes through the window and takes the girl is one of the most ridiculous things ive seen in a movie before, i think it looked better on Scary Movie 2 lol. That clown thing was also extremeley corny, the special effects were prety bad in this and you cant say its becuase they're old becuase theres movies as old as this that did it better. I dont no whether this is ment to be scary or not but it just is not in anyway.
The reason i give this atleast 50% is because i guess its a good try but it could have been alot better, it had maybe a couple of allright horror scenes that were done pretty well but also alot that were just stupid. Usally i love any film that's considered a horror classic but for some reason not this one i dont no it's weird but i pretty much hated this.
Its a horror that is far from horrifying or even close to being it, the acting was good enough, but as far as this being the best ghost horror i have to disagree. I no everyone loves this but yea just not me i think its one of the most overrated horror's ever in my honest opinion!!
