Forget the 2015 remake and the inferior sequels, the 1982 Poltergeist original is one of the best horror films ever made. WhIle Tobe Hooper is the credited director, runs for persisted for decades that Spielberg himself was really calling the shots. However true this is or isn't , Spielberg's finger prints are all over the film, from the signature low angles and back lighting to the exceptional performances of the children to the brave and resourceful mother figure. Jerry Goldsmith's score is superb and Michael Kahn's editing ranks with his best work. Thrilling, scary, funny, sweek and touching, Poltergeist has it all.

Goofy fun.
