POLTERGEIST (70MM)

Director: Tobe Hooper

U.S.A.| 1982. COLOUR. ANAMORPHIC. DOLBY STEREO. 114 MIN.


Produced by Steven Spielberg and directed by Tobe Hooper, this genuinely spooky supernatural thriller is everything that the likes of The Amityville Horror can only dream of being. It takes place in Spielberg’s favourite terrain, the American suburb, where a haunted house is occupied by a fairly normal family. Before long, weird events begin to happen as the house is invaded by something inside the family’s television set. Then all hell breaks loose as the plot takes off into a delirious fight with demonic forces suggestive of nothing so much as a Walt Disney horror movie. Hooper’s brand of visceral terror doesn’t get much of a look in as the film develops into a spectacular, special-effects-laden sound and light show that has Spielberg’s visual signature painted all over it. All the sound and fury should pack quite a punch in this ultra-rare 70mm presentation.
