Horror Movie Podcast Ep. 055: Poltergeist (1982) vs. Poltergeist (2015)

VS Poltergeist

We’re here! Welcome to HORROR MOVIE PODCAST, where we’re Dead Serious About Horror Movies… This is Episode 055. In this special VERSUS episode, Jay of the Dead, Dr. Shock and Dr. Walking Dead review the original Poltergeist from 1982, and then Jay and Kyle bring you an in-depth review of the new Poltergeist remake from 2015.

This episode may be the most extensive film analysis ever recorded about “Poltergeist,” clocking in at more than 3 hours! We talk a little bit about what Jay of the Dead calls “Nostalgia Bias,” and Dr. Walking Dead discusses the fascinating, parallel relationship between “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial” and the original “Poltergeist.”

But be warned: We reveal major plot spoilers for both “Poltergeist” movies, as well as the 1986 sequel. Join us!

We are getting close to finishing up the Horror Movie Podcast t-shirts. Yes, plural. I’m creating two. They will be similar. Both will have the cities listed on the back like a concert tour shirt.

They will probably cost about $15 each (U.S.), but they will be very high-quality t-shirts. Perhaps a two for $25 deal or something… I don’t know yet. Don’t quote me.

2.) Be sure your city is represented below. I don’t want to miss any listeners’ cities, so please leave your city in the comments below, if I’ve overlooked it: Continue reading
