Poltergeist III


poltergeistiiiIn this third part, Carol Anne’s (Heather O’Rourke) family has been removed and the setting has changed from a California house to a Chicago highrise where she’s temporarily living with her aunt and uncle (Tom Skerritt, Nancy Allen). Carol Anne’s clairvoyance is still attracting ghosts, but this film has the feel of a bad Nightmare on Elm Street sequel. There are a few spooky mirror tricks, but the special effects are mostly quite dour and O’Rourke is getting a little old for the part.

1988-U.S. 97 min. Color. Directed by Gary Sherman. Cast: Tom Skerritt (Bruce Gardner), Nancy Allen (Patricia Gardner), Heather O’Rourke (Carol Anne Freeling), Zelda Rubinstein, Lara Flynn Boyle, Kip Wentz. 

Trivia: Part of this franchise’s mythology is a rumor that it’s cursed – Dominique Dunne was murdered after the first movie, Julian Beck died of cancer after the second one and O’Rourke died shortly after the third one.
