News & Interviews for Poltergeist III
Critic Reviews for Poltergeist III
Among the well-known of legendary bad movies, Poltergeist III is a sequel with more scope and perspective than most.
At its worst, well, it's just another soulless, hacky-tacky horror sequel.
Cheesy sequel has some suspense, supernatural violence.
...falls right in line with its entirely underwhelming predecessor...
I recall two emotions from seeing this: sadness at seeing Heather O'Rourke (who died during filming); and intense discomfort from the 12-pack of beer my friend and I chugged in the parking lot before going to see this
Audience Reviews for Poltergeist III
Darker than the previous movies but uninspired, repetitious, full of inconsistencies and with characters who always behave in such ludicrous ways - like Nancy Allen's who is initially annoying and selfish at one moment only to completely change her mind right after.
In my eyes, all three films are known for their fantastical practical effects. Sadly, with this third and final instalment in this trilogy, "Poltergeist III" offers nothing more than that. When the rest of the cast aside from Heather O"Rourke decide to bail on the film, you know the script was bad, and it really is. When the dialogue begins to run thin, the film turns into the characters shouting "Carol-Anne" in every sentence, to the point of tearing your hair out. This was such a lazy script, even in comparison to the first sequel. Heather O'Rourke tries her best once again, and the practical effects stand-out, but I could not seem to find another positive in this one-location film. With new one-dimensional characters and laughable side characters, this is the most ridiculous chapter in these films yet. By the end, I really did not care what the outcome was, I had checked out about halfway through. It was only 97-minutes which was nice, but it sucks when that is a positive from a film. Lazy all around, it sucks that this is the film that concluded it all.
Son of a fucking bitch. I meant to watch Exorcist 3 not Poltergeist 3. I just sat through this entire piece of suck ass. I didn't realize until it was over that I had mixed up the movie titles. Fuck me. 2 hours of my life WASTED. FUCK YOU POLTERGEIST 3!

|Dr. Seaton:||Do you think she can?|
|Dr. Seaton:||But you think she is staring straight at you.|
|Dr. Seaton:||That seems to be one of her dubious talents, making people believe things.|
