Despite prominent billing, Julian Beck only gets eleven minutes of screentime; Beck died of stomach cancer during filming, so the latter scenes with the "vomit monster" had to be added to replace his remaining scenes (the reason it resembles Beck). His telling the Freelings they're going to die has been interpreted as Beck anticipating his oncoming death. Many of Beck's lines were looped in post-production by noted voice actor Corey Burton.

Taylor! Taylor, where the hell were you? We're not safe here anymore. My son almost died and you just sit here.
I was protecting Carol Anne. It's her he's after, not Robbie, not you or Diane.

Poltergeist II (1986) was the second film of the Poltergeist Trilogy. With the amount of money the first film made. the studio decided to make another film. The principal players from the Freeling family are here (sans Dominique Dunne, for reasons known) along with an old friend from part one. A new character is added to the mix as well. Poltergeist II is darker than the first one (if you can believe that) but not as brilliant as the first one.
The Freelings have moved away from the remnants of the home. After the horrific events of part one, things can't get any worse (or can they...). An evil entity is following the family on the run. For awhile things are relativity calm. They've set up a new residence (with a family member) but the family has fallen on some pretty hard times. But they're about to get even harder. A dark man has been visiting them hurling religious epitaphs at them. Like a family house guest he doesn't want to leave and is even more bothersome than a Fuller Brush salesman or a religious solicitor. Does this strange figure intended to harm the Freelings or is he a person from the family's past?
A scary sequel. Not bad, if you want to follow the exploits of the Freelings then this movie is for you. Poltergeist II is a worthy sequel. I enjoyed it very much. Followed by the final entry in the Poltergeist trilogy, the ever so dark and (surprisingly frightening) part three.
