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

It's perfect.
24 January 2008 | by bedrasSee all my reviews

An excellent French comedy.

Someone may say that it lacks fun... hmmm, well, yeah, it lacks oh so stupid jokes about shitting, vomiting and such stuff. Those who laugh about other things will like Poltergay very likely.

A little bit of sex, psycho and disco. The cast is spectacular. The main characters are fun, but guys who play gay parts are absolutely amazing. They all act very lifelike, without rude caricature or something.

The thing I liked most - joking around about tolerance and respect and other things that really make sense in our daily life. The movie has the idea in it along with lots of laugh during the whole thing.

In common, it's very fluffy and good to watch to raise your mood. I watched it several times and laughed each time like it was the first one.
