4 "THEY'RE HERE"MovieAddict | 20/02/2008 | See all MovieAddict's reviews (1336)Top 10 Reviewer Top 10 DVD Reviewer At last this much loved friendly friendly chiller is out on DVD after over 25 years from it's original release, but has it been worth the wait?The film is still as good as ever.The film feels almost whimsical at first, as the spirtis play stack to chair games in the Freeling Family kitchen of there new suburban home. You can almost feel producer Spielberg's fingers all over the first twenty minutes.The things turn darker as storm clouds start to gather, the tree attacks and little Carol Ann is whisked into a spectral void via her TV. Not even Derick and his imaginary friend Sam off TV's Most Haunted could deal with this! The film is never frightening, but it still has the sense of wounder it had when I first watched it as a Teenager. The only really scary bit in the film is the Midget medium with the childs voice and the attack of the clown doll(Midgets and clowns are a thing of nightmares for me!).The film is aimed more at a family audiance, but it is very, very entertaining.What really lets this film down is the truly scary lack of special features, Surly after over 25 years this much loved chiller should give it's many fans somthing worth waiting for.Worth buying, but some how not worth the wait due to the seriouse lack of extras!
