It's hard to believe that the haunted house classic, Poltergeist is celebrating its twenty-fifth anniversary this year. I remember seeing this puppy in theatres way back when. Holy Christ, I feel old! In celebration of this momentous occasion, and the release of the new Poltergeist: 25
Those generous ladies and gents over at Anchor Bay were cool enough to forward on a look at the artwork for their next scheduled Masters of Horror release, Tobe Hooper’s “The Damned Thing” (review), this weekend. Pretty snazzy, no?
