Because Jerry Goldsmith returned to compose the sequel, 'Carol-Anne's Theme' returns from the first film's soundtrack, but the score for Poltergeist II consisted of mostly new material blending traditional orchestral elements with new electronic sounds. The soundtrack has been released three times; through Varese Sarabande in 1986, Intrada Records in 1993 and a deluxe edition by Sarabande in 2003. See more »

In the credits, the words "Cavern and Mountaintop set materials by Foam-Tec" do not match with the rest of the closing credits. They seem to have been added on later. See more »
"Poltergeist II: The Other Side" is a very interesting movie despite the fact that the plot was rather subpar. My favorite movie of all time is the original "Poltergeist," and this movie is a respectable sequel. I like it because of the character Kane, for one, who gives the movie another ghostly dimension. Julian Beck was wonderful in the film as Kane. Also, the children remained good actors, especially the late Heather O'Rourke, who played Carol Anne. This is another strong performance by the young actress, and would have gone on to be a wonderful adult actress later in life had she lived. All in all, I give it a 7.5 out of 10.
