Review

By the time that Jerry Goldsmith scored 1985's Poltergeist II, he had already been one of the top composers in Hollywood for nearly two decades, so it's no surprise that his work here is solid, even when the reputation of the film is not. While electronic elements have been a part of film scores almost as long as they have been recorded, Goldsmith typically shied away from featuring synthesizers on earlier scores. Here, however, he uses them to great effect -- and not only in the typical fashion to highlight spookier moments, but in many cases anchoring key compositions like the otherworldly bass of "The Visitor" and the tense swirling tones of "The Worm." The deluxe edition of Poltergeist II includes a photo-rich booklet with quality liner notes by Jerry McCulley. ~ Wade Kergan, Rovi
