One of the best final chapters
P3 was one of my favorite movies. Sadly, Heater O' Rourke died b4 they were finished filming. This film is dedicated to her memory. It was sad to see a 13 year old actor die. Own this final chapter and prepare to be scared
The final film of Heather O'Rourke.
JoBeth Williams, Craig T. Nelson and Oliver Robins do not appear in this film.
Heather O'Rourke and Zelda Rubinstein do return as this
story goes off into a different direction.
Carol Anne (now 12) is staying with her aunt Pat (Nancy Allen) and uncle Bruce (Tom Skerritt) in Chicago for a while. They live in a penthouse above the Galleria in this skyscraper tower (actually is the John Hancock Tower).
Carol Anne is enrolled in a school for gifted children. She has a cynical psychiatrist, Dr. Seaton (Richard Fire) that does not believe in her psychic ability, but is trying to bring her fears of 1982 and 1986 back to surface. Carol Anne has her psychiatrist all figured out and is cautious.
The unusual phenomenon has already begun inside the tower and the evil preacher, Kane (now played by Nathan Davis) is after Carol Anne again.
Not the best Poltergeist film and there is a reason for it, but it does have some great "mirror" effects.
Before this film was released, we all heard the sad news that Heather O'Rourke had unexpectedly died. The film was on a four-month hiatus. O'Rourke had a blocked intestine and it had burst. She died February 1, 1988.
So much money was put into the film that it was decided they had to finish it by re-writing the ending and using a stand-in to play "Carol Anne". The story of the movie became totally different all together due to the death of Heather O'Rouke and not being able to re-shoot scenes with her.
Nice added touch of writing was the mention of Will Sampson's character, "Taylor", having given "Tagina" the amulet. Will Sampson, who was in Poltergeist 2, passed away June 3, 1987.
Also in the cast: Lara Flynn Boyle, Kip Wentz, Joey Garfield, Catherine Gatz.
Due to the death of Heather O'Rourke, they never made another Poltergeist movie (until 2011), however their was the Showtime tv series, Poltergeist - The Legacy - Season 1 (1996-1999).
***Update: The new "Poltergeist" movie has been delayed. Waiting until MGM solves their bankruptcy matters. Looking for a 2013 release.
