    Poltergeist III

    ★★★

    Poltergeist II is just a retread of the first movie with producers hoping to capture some of that same ol' magic by getting the gang back together.

    Poltergeist III, which only has Heather O'Rourke and Zelda Rubinstein from the original squad, has a different tone and feel even as the film continues the Kane the Beast story line from Part 2 (unfortunately, Julian Beck passed away and had to be replaced, so it's just not the same).

    I haven't seen the original Prom Night in decades and wasn't in the mood to re-watch it, so it was good knowing that Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night II is a sequel in name only and basically has nothing to do with the Jamie Lee Curtis film. That one is a slasher, this one is horror, and what a good little horror film it is.

    My general distrust of most sequels as just shameless cash grabs with a track record…
