Poltergeist (Hooper, 1982)

"They're here."

Seeing Poltergeist in theaters (at a special screening celebrating the film's 25th anniversary) was a complete blast, and Hooper's film feels like the same piece of effective, light (and "Spielbergian") entertainment it must have been back in 1982. A clunky, endearing haunted house ride that efficaciously blends humor with horror.
