    It finally arrived yesterday (brand new copy) after the UPS guy picked it back up from the wrong house and brought it to mine. It's certainly one of the smoothest running LD's (mechanically balanced) and the widescreen image isn't nice compared to the P&S versions. But the image is not up to even laserdisc standards and certainly not up to DVD standards.

    And watching that second movie with Heather O'Roark being gone makes it somewhat depressing. She sure was a precious little girl.

    FYI: Due to the pre-1983 buyout of all MGM titles by Warner, the ownership of the Poltergeist films have been split.

    Warner Bros. owns the rights to the original Poltergesit

    MGM owns the rights to all the remaining sequels.

    Supposedly, the is a SE in the works for Poltergeist I by Warner Bros. in 2002.

    No word on MGM.
