Poltergeist III is a terrible movie with lots of flaws and errors and it's a real same that this was Heather O'Rourke last role before he tragic death.

Action: 1.5/3 + Comedy: 0/2 + Good vs Evil: 1/1 + Love/Sex: 0.5/1 + Special Effects: 0/1 + Plot: 0.5/1 + Music: 0/1 = 3.5 or 35%. The franchise had obviously run it's course by the second film, which would have made anything decent within this film gravy. Alas, there's really nothing good or clever to note here. Thus, hard-core fans can watch it to see the franchise end. Others can just laugh at the poor scare tactics and perhaps claim that it foreshadows other poor horror films such as Mirrors.

The fun of the first, the adequacy of the second - the deplorable nature of the third. Few of the original actors are here, the effects are pretty lame and the whole mirror thing just doesn't work for me. Should have stopped while ahead.

Weak.

This is almost painful, but given writer/director Gary Sherman's portfolio, one can't be too surprised. So yes, 80% of the script is simply "Carol Anne" - someone yelling it, someone crying it, whispering, screaming, or saying it mockingly...one can look past this thanks to the god awful acting, the ridiculous mirror-filled (and glaringly obvious FAKE mirror-filled) setting and of course the whole idea that Carol Anne's parents simply shipped her off to Chicago...

The major disappointment with this installment, as well as the second, was the introduction of "Kane." This lukewarm character offers no chills...in fact he doesn't contribute much of anything, and what he DID have he spent all of in the sequel. The faceless evil force of the original movie succeeds in that ever-successful me...
