Two wanted women decide to rob their wealthy psychotic friend who lives in the fantasy world they created as children; to take the money they have to take part in a deadly perverse game of make believe.
Two gangsters are given 72 hours to discover the whereabouts of a stash of drug money stolen by their boss. There's only one problem...they just murdered him. Frantic to find the cash, the hapless criminals kidnap a psychic medium and force her to contact the dead gang boss. Unfortunately for them, they only succeed in unleashing an evil spirit bent on revenge.
Polterheist actress and co-screenwriter Gemma Head passed away months before the film went on general release. Gemma won a posthumous award for Best Screenplay at the Unrestricted View Horror Film Festival, along with Paul Renhard and Dave Gilbank. She wrote many of the film's gags and the 'card scene' and is credited by director Gilbank for giving the film a 'greater emotional resonance'. See more »
A British gangster movie shot in the style of Reservoir Dogs, with a touch of The Exorcist and a hint of The League of Gentlemen thrown in for good measure, all neatly packaged in a northern sense of humour tin.
With characters complimenting each other through the sometimes violent, brutal and yet very funny scenes and a seriously slick production providing the perfect combination, Polterheist is lifted onto another level...........another spiritual level.
