    It's one of my favorite movies ever, but I don't like this ending. The family survives the horrors and the hauntings, the little fat chick is all THIS HOUSE IS CLEAN LOL and everyone is just pleased as pie, what a nice happy ending

    Then the shit comes back for no fucking reason, the house is destroyed, they're homeless, and it ends with them checking into a motel

    What the fuck, that is fucking depressing

    You know what's really depressing about Poltergeist?

    Those awful sequels.

    That's because Spielberg didn't direct those like he did for Hooper during the first.

    I would compare Poltergeist to The Witch. Has anybody seen that Witch thread? Amazing!
