Not exactly Poltergeist, but it's good
4 January 2000 | by Falcon-51See all my reviews

Fairly good acting with well done special effects and a very good story. The story is about 3 (spirits/ghosts) and 1 demon trying to break up a family. The story claims to be fact based except for a few time frames. You need to see the end of the movie and read the follow up notes to understand what happens where the film leaves off. If you where expecting the Poltergeist you will not find anything quite that intense, but fact is stranger than fiction, and this is based on fact. You may have trouble sleeping after seeing this one.
