Carol Anne has been sent to live with her Aunt and Uncle in an effort to hide her from the clutches of the ghostly Reverend Kane, but he tracks her down and terrorises her in her relatives' appartment in a tall glass building. Will he finally achieve his target and capture Carol Anne again, or will Tangina be able, yet again, to thwart him?Written by
There were originally plans for Craig T. Nelson to return for a Poltergeist 4, but the death of Heather O'Rourke, the ensuing media scandal about the Poltergeist curse that overshadowed pretty much everything else about the movie, the recurring deaths of actors involved in the film series, and the disappointing box office returns from Poltergeist III (1988) dissuaded the producers from continuing the franchise, and it ultimately ended at 3 films. The film series was ultimately rebooted with Poltergeist (2015), a remake of the original, but neither Nelson nor any of the series' principle cast members made an appearance. See more »
Right at the start of the film, just after Carol Anne waves to the window cleaner, she crawls off the bed to look out the window. Her movements here do not match the movements her reflection makes in the mirror behind her. This reflection had to be edited in rather than filmed live, so the camera itself would not be seen reflected. See more »

P3 was ok, but I wish that the basic plot was thought out a little more. Didn't Henry Kane die at the end of Poltergeist II? I can think up a plot that is better than that. Maybe Kane had a daughter whose soul was roaming around and bring her into the movie instead. I also think that Laura Flynn Boyle should have played Dana because P2 never told us where she was. (The orignal actress who played Dana died before P2)
Some of the acting is a little stiff but most of it is done well. It is interesting how almost all the effects were done on the spot, not with a computer and the effects look kind of home-made but it is nice to see that in a movie. This movie isn't as good as the original but still watch it if you are a fan of the first film.
