Let me know you've stopped by and if you've enjoyed your stay. Knowing that people have frequented keeps me energized to bring more to the Junkyard!

And Another Thing...

There are times where I'll find a compilation or bootleg that I do not know the original source. I always try to give credit where it's due but sometimes it's impossible for me to know just where it originated. If you are a blogger or someone who happens to have made a particular bootleg or compilation and you find it listed here let me know and I will give you full credit...

Poltergeist II Deluxe Edition/Jerry Goldsmith

This score is a lot more in your face than the previous installment. This is more comparable to Goldsmith's Damien: Omen II what with all it's choral chanting and demonic rambunctiousness.

It's a fun score and has a high creep factor. A lot more synthy too. There was a measly 5 track version released that lasted just under 30 minutes in 1986... then Varese Sarabande released a Deluxe Edition in 2003. This is what I have for you here.

There is a 2 disc bootleg out there. I haven't a clue as to the quality of that one. But if it's any count, it will be posted one day.

As for the movie, it's just as entertaining as the first though it's not quite as good. I say this because it's obviously lacking the Spielberg flair of the original. It just doesn't feel as tight and profound as the original and perhaps a bit forced. But that's just about as critical as I can get with the film. I'm very fond of Poltergeist II for it's visceral energy and it's all out weird factor. This entry is a lot more slimy and ooey gooey. It's got a maggot man, a preacher skeleton guy, and indians.

Oh yeah...

and Tangina!
