Two traumatizing films of the 1980s hit the screen for this Retrofantasma double feature. First up is 1982's Poltergeist, the Steven Spielberg-produced (and some suspect ghost-directed) tale of a family that moves into a house with a very wrong TV set and very wrong trees. Though derivative of a number of classic short stories and Twilight Zone episodes, it packs a genuine punch with its special effects and eerie moments, including the much-parodied "They're heeere." Having had many nightmares about the little girl trapped in the TV from seeing Poltergeist as a kid, I can verify that this film holds up. It's paired with 1981's The Boogens, a tale of reptilian creatures unleashed from beneath an old silver mine. —Zack Smith
