Poltergeist 2: The Other Side
Not yet rated
Time Out saysSome people never learn. The Freeling family sensibly quit their hole in the ground at Cuesta Verde and take refuge with Granma Jess, who recognises a fellow clairvoyant in little Carol Anne. Soon the psychic forces are shaking up their domestic life, and a cadaverous stranger seems determined to take the blonde moppet back into the other world. Enter Munchkin medium Tangina (Rubinstein) and an all-wise Red Indian (Sampson) to join in the battle, and the old tug-of-war is noisily enacted again. This sequel, sans Spielberg but obedient to his spirit, simply fails to regenerate the original's gut-grinding fears that make you dread ever scratching a spot again. And the contribution of Giger's design work has only added one near-unwatchable sequence.
