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
Although much of the film is set in Chicago's John Hancock Center, the shopping area and parking garage as seen in the film do not exist in the Hancock Center. The shopping area (especially the escalators seen immediately before the art gallery sequence) is across the street, in the Water Tower Place shopping mall. The parking garage is definitely not the Hancock Center's, it was filmed in a high rise dual tower complex called "Oakbrook Terrace" in a suburb west of Chicago. See more »
When Doctor Seaton is pushed down the elevator shaft the elevator is shown going up with the floor doors open and the doctor sprawled on top near the door operator. This would never happen because elevators are equipped with door interlock mechanisms. This means the outer doors (floor doors) could not be opened unless the elevator is present and completes a circuit. This mechanism also cuts the circuit to prevent it from moving if ANY doors are open. These multiple redundant fail-safes have been around for decades and would certainly be available on an 1988 elevator within a building portrayed to be a state of the art, new construction.

The first POLTERGEIST is still the best haunted house film in history(In my opinion.), but this 2nd and final(?)sequel comes in at a close 2nd. Carol Anne stays with some relatives(Tom Skeritt, Nancy Allen, and Lara Flynn Boyle.)in a Chicago highrise to go to a special school for gifted children. Suddenly the evil Reverend Kane and his army of ghosts from the first two films show up to make life Hell for the residents of the highrise. Exciting, suspenseful, great story, acting, and music score. ***** out of *****. R.I.P. Heather O'rourke.
