The producers were granted permission to use the John Hancock Tower in Chicago for shooting providing that none of the building's residents would be disturbed. The sixty person crew took four weeks just to figure out the logistics, and ultimately the tenants never even noticed that the film was shooting there. See more »

What have you got in mind?
Packing up everything that belongs to that little brat and sending her home to my sister.

I was shocked when I came to this site to see how low the rating is for this movie. I loved horror movies as a kid and still do, but of everything I remember watching when I was younger, Poltergeist III scared me the most. I would go literally weeks before I could look at myself in the mirror again... I'd always have to run by them. I used to watch this movie with my friends and it made them equally afraid of mirrors. I'm not going all out to say that the acting was high quality or that it goes down in my books as a classic horror movie but I think it's highly underrated. It's an incredibly dark, terrifying movie in my opinion. I think it's by far the scariest of the three Poltergeist movies, although the original Poltergeist is my favorite.
