- Carol Anne Freeling (Heather O'Rourke) about the poltergeists
3 stars out of 5 -- The performances are solid, the themes intriguing and the whispery build-up effective...
A slick, entertaining ghost story and a stomach-turning gore-fest in equal measure, the balance of Spielberg and Hooper's creative impulses blending together. Full Review
Spielberg's intent may be satirical, but I find these stereotypes even more depressing than hobgoblins, and would not have minded if they'd all been dragged off into the fourth dimension. Full Review
Though the shocks are well conveyed, it's the sweetness that lingers, making this the first cute and cuddly entry in the genre. Full Review
Rating: 10/10 -- The sweet, angelic face of Heather O'Rourke swirled together with viscous, ectoplasmic demons and food abominations make for an uncomfortable yet unforgettable movie watching experience Full Review
Rating: 7/10 -- One of the 1980s' most distinctive and important horror movies. Full Review
Antagony & Ecstasy
[It] raises interesting psychological issues in the context of a baroque ghost story. It's a devastating commentary on the tv-oriented suburban lifestyle. Finally, it demonstrates the power and efficacy of the story told from the child's point of view. Full Review
Ghosts invade suburbia in this 1982 horror film from director Tobe Hooper (TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE) and producer Steven Spielberg. Life in the Freeling family's tract home is comfortably bland, but frisky poltergeists soon put a little excitement into their daily routine--moving furniture and communicating with their youngest daughter, Carol Anne, through the television set. Unfortunately, harmless pranks quickly turn nasty and the previously friendly ghosts kidnap Carol Anne, trapping her in the spirit world. To win the child back, the family calls in a team of parapsychologists and a psychic who conducts an elaborate exorcism. The apocalyptic finale is deliciously macabre, and pushed the limits of the PG rating. A number of sequels followed, and speculation still remains on whether Spielberg--who wrote the story and storyboarded the action--essentially ghost directed the film.
- Filmed in Metrocolor and Panavision.
- Film was originally rated R by the MPAA, but received a PG on appeal.
- Academy Award Nominations: Best Original Score, Best Visual Effects, Best Sound Effects Editing.
