Silent Comedienne Poll on IMDb


Recommended Posts

I voted for 'Poltergeist'. Its the only genuinely original and iconic movie listed. Everyone else was thin, or a gimmick, or a remake of some kind. Y'know...horror movies which become big-hits often seem like random flukes but usually, they are carefully-chosen by their producers. They're watersheds. 'Poltergeist' codifies a whole swathe of stories which many authors might embark on, but which ultimately end up as 'indian spirit stories' with indians as the story-engine driving the suspense. That's probably why Spielberg was involved: his story-sense is super-sharp; the same way Stephen King's is. They know what has been done and what hasn't been done; so they know what to put their name on. Both those guys between them, they cover the most 'archetypical' yarns it is possible to give modern audiences.
