Storyline

When Marc and Emma move into their new house, they have no idea that in the 1970s, their basement was a gay nightclub which had been destroyed by fire and that the house itself is now haunted by the ghosts of five gay and mischievous clubbers. And now their penchant for raising the roof with renditions of Boney M's 'Rasputin' causes havoc in the household! How to put an end to these fiendish frighteners? Is there something Mark himself can do? If so, at what cost? 'Poltergay' will have your sides in stitches and your head rolling on the floor! Written by Anonymous

Entertaining all the same...
29 October 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

We've just got back from France where this movie has just started showing. Although our French is a bit patchy - well, very patchy, we decided to go and see this movie as it looked like it might be really good.

It includes great music including Boney M's Rasputin which, for reasons that will become clear when you watch the movie, is played more times than I've had hot dinners this year.

Despite missing some of the dialogue jokes (we could tell when others were laughing) I really enjoyed this movie. There are good performances from the cast who really enter into the spirit of camping it up. I guess what I liked about it was that it wasn't as spoof as something like the scary movie films - but at the same time it took the opportunity to be a bit silly whilst preserving a certain level of realism.

They didn't really make a huge amount of use of special effects which actually worked really well as when they did pull the stops out for a scene it was actually pretty impressive which enabled you to share in the characters sense of disbelief.

In short, it was funny and basically just a bit silly - the perfect evenings entertainment. Can't wait for the release of the DVD which I am now desperately hoping will have English sub-titles so I can go back and fully enjoy the poltergay experience!
