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 »

Pointless following and again Carol Anne pursued by evil beings
This third installment deals about Carol(Heather O'Rourke)goes with her uncle(Tom Skerritt), aunt(Nancy Allen) and their teenaged daughter(Lara Flynn Boyle)to stay into a highrise building. Then , appear the otherworld creatures who had haunted her previously and she's still pursued by weird beings. Again the strange reverend Kane( Nathan Davies substituting to Julian Beck). The family find its building and the swimming pool invaded by unfriendly spirits which abduct the 6-years-old girl. Carol Anne with the help her aunts and along with psychic Tangina Burrons(Zelda Rubinstein) confront against the supernatural forces.
Another undisguised follow-up from excellent original(produced by Spielberg), occasionally plodding and pointless sequel; furthermore, rapidly and lousy made. This sensationalistic scary ghosts story packs eerie scenes, tension, thrills, chills and amazing images. The interpretation is uninspired and is badly pulled off in gaps and flaws that cause no coherence and lack common sense. Average musical score , I miss the magnificent soundtrack by Jerry Goldsmith proceeded in Poltergeist I(Tobe Hooper) and II: the other side(Brian Gibson). O'Rourke spontaneously deceased months before the movie's release and the film is dedicated Heather. The picture is rated 'Parent guide' for spooky events, creepy intensity and frightening happenings.The whole project collapses under regular direction by Gary Sherman. Here, he's screenwriter, special visual effects designer and mediocre director. In spite of it, he achieved some success in the terror cinema(Dead and buried). This inferior sequel is exclusively for Poltergeist trilogy buffs.
