GUEST HOST: BOB FOSTER!!
- Poltergeist (1982)
We did an episode about movies that were a bit scarier than intended. As one grows up, some things don't affect us the same way, and we scoff at what bothered our child brains. There are those few films, however, that continue to probe into our psyche and push our instinctual fear buttons in some form or other. When a flick can still make you uncomfortable as an adult, that is quite a feat.
Poltergeist was the 1st title to pop into this on our master list as it still kicks so much hinder! Since we turned into babble fish over this masterpiece, you'll just have to wait until a few Saturdays for the next installment to round out this discussion on things that remain potent after plenty of other stories have attempted to stack up. There was even a remake in the last year, and for those who have seen it - don't worry, we don't spend too much time on it...

After recording, Matt looked at the CinemaSins post for Poltergeist. We assure you, he had 5-6 of the same thoughts independent of that video. Great minds, eh? We also assure you that we are open.
