This is a soundtrack that you do not think to listen to on a regular basis. It is an amazing piece of work married to an amazing movie. I like to drive down the road and listen to this pretty loudly. You never know what will come out of your speakers next, which is why I love it so. If you ever have a chance to listen to it, and you are a fan of the movie, get it. Really!!!

Jerry Goldsmith brilliantly balances his sweet lullaby for little Carol Anne with the ethereal theme for "The Light" with some of the nastiest off-rythm ostinatos you''ve ever heard! This balance perfectly creates, as it should, a sense of unease, a sense of "something is not right in the Freeling home"!

I owned the LP (right before CDs were introduced) of Poltergeist when the film debuted in 1982, and while the vynil presented most of the clarity of the digital recording, including some nice deep bass thuds during key scary moments, it was severely edited and lacked many of the cues heard in the film.

This CD, released by Rhino Records, is not only a crystal-clear rendition of the digital studio master tape, but it contains every single note of music heard in the film, and some notes not even used in the film, all of which are powerful, but were omitted because the visual FX shots that those notes were designed for weren''t completed in time for the film''s release (Night Visitor, when the spirits are descending down the staircase) or because the film''s producer, Steven Spielberg, felt a particular section of music was too melodramatic (The Tree, when Robby climbs up the gnarled tree next to his bedroom window in the daytime and Diane is burying Carol Anne''s dead bird, Tweety), and that the scene played better in dialogue and sound FX only. Following the example he and John Williams set in Jaws, Spielberg felt, rightly, that it''s better to only play music when a threat is actually there.

Like Spielberg says of Jerry Goldsmith''s music in the liner notes, "Don''t trust his melodies. Something perfectly unworldly is due to occur the moment you let your guard drop..." ...and, out of near silence, out of nowhere, when you least expect it, Goldsmith will STAB you and make you jump right out of your skin!

Don''t listen to this one alone on a rainy night...

The late Jerry Goldsmith ranks right up there with John Williams and Elmer Bernstein as one of the greatest composers of film music in history. Among his dozens upon dozens of credits are scores to horror films like 1972''s THE OTHER, and his 1976 Oscar-winning score for THE OMEN. The one he composed for the 1982 Steven Spielberg/Tobe Hooper terror classic POLTERGEIST certainly ranks up there as a jewel in his crown.

Beginning with Goldsmith''s adaptation of the National Anthem (used in the opening credits, and as the TV in the Frelengs'' house is about to receive nothing but snow and a few "TV people"), the score for POLTERGEIST is designed, like the film itself, to keep one just a little off balance and on edge. "Carol Ann''s Theme" is one of the more poignant single cues of music in film history, with its children''s choir, an astounding fear considering that this is, after all, a horror film. In other places in the score, Goldsmith integrates the ominous Gregorian chant "Dies Irae", a centerpiece of Berlioz''s "Symphonie Fantastique" and that also found its way loosely into the music for A CLOCKWORK ORANGE, THE SHINING, and THE RING. Other times, it has echoes of Debussy and Stravinsky. But the score is quite original in its own spectacularly suspenseful and terrifying way.

POLTERGEIST got Goldsmith another Oscar nomination in 1982; and while he lost to Williams'' score for E.T., it nevertheless was a huge success for him as a composer, and a reputation that had been built since the 1950s would continue until his passing in 2004. This soundtrack is strongly recommended, especially because it comes from what is, along with THE SHINING, one of the few horror movies released during the 1980s that can legitimately be considered a masterpiece.

I never owned the original album, so I can''t compare the two. However, I looked it up on Soundtrack.net, and I couldn''t believe there was less than 40 mins. on it! Thank goodness for Rhino Records! They have not only restored and re-mastered this score with perfect pristine sound, but they have included every single note heard in the film, and much much more! Almost 70 mins. of music!
I can see why Jerry Goldsmith was nominated for this one! It is not only powerful and effective in the movie, but it is also wonderful as a listen-alone experience. The powerful choir during "Twisted Abduction" will enchant you as much as the brass stings (a frequent Goldsmith trademark) and the strings will sweep you into a world of your own! "The Light" is a very beautiful track in which Dr. Lesh (played by the wonderful Beatrice Straight) explains the concept of the light that the spirits must go through. The spectacular string effects will leave you breathless and begging for more. Another cue I would highly recommend is the "They''re Here" cue. When the hand comes through the TV, it will make you jump. You just don''t know exactly when that trombone is going to snap at your ears! Then comes the swirling strings as the poltergeist burns as hole through the bedroom wall and shakes the room.
If you are a Goldsmith fan, then this is essential to your collection. No question about it! Every cue on this CD will have you pressing the "Skip Back" button many times!
