Why no Poltergeist 3 on blu-ray in US?

It's odd that Poltergeist 3 was released on blu-ray in other parts of the world but still not in the US yet. We're waiting for NOES 4-7 on BD as well and U.K. got them on the format already. It's ironic that the US is getting them last if they will eventually come out here considering these movies originated from here. Heck House 3 and 4 still are not out on DVD in region 1 yet and other regions got them on DVD almost 10 years ago. I hope Poltergeist 3 and NOES 4-7 won't suffer the same fate of BD release in the US that House 3 and 4 did on DVD.

Apparently studios think the only time to release catalog horror is in the fall. I guess no one watches horror films any other time of the year...

They think since it's Halloween layman buyers are more inclined to buy horror flicks then.

I'm surprised they even bothered with II. Though I'd rather see III on blu-ray, since it is the better of the two films.

Agreed, but then you can't go wrong with Nancy Allen either.

It's being sold both individually and as part of a combo pack with Poltergeist II.

Oh ok, thanks. So you would save a significant amount of money buying the combo versus individual 2 & 3.

Hell, I've had Poltergeist 3 on Blu-ray for nearly 5 years now. The various MGM imports are all region free.

Covers for the re-release of part 2 and the new Blu for part 3 are up on Amazon.





Double Feature


I'm not crazy about the new look for part 2 or the double feature cover honestly. I am digging the cover for part 3 though.

It's a heck of a lot better than the artwork on the old Poltergeist II blu-ray (the one I own):
