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!
