Title - 'Poltergeist' (OST)
Artist - Marc Streitenfeld

As much as I knew there was a new 'Poltergeist' movie being made, I have to fully admit that the fact it opens tomorrow has really snuck up on me! And then the 2015 soundtrack arrived here for reviewing and so I put it on, began listening and wow, it is so good, so reminiscent of the original, that I cannot stop thinking of that version whilst listening!

Much like the original composer, Jerry Goldsmith, German film score composer Marc Streitenfeld keeps listeners on edge by constructing sweeping soundscapes with drastically contrasting moods, rapidly slipping from childlike delicacy to overpowering grandeur in just a few bars of music. Consider the revisited tones of the main title or the rapid shifts from understated menace to overwhelming terror in "They're Not Pretend, Mommy."

1. Poltergeist Opening
2. They Are Here
3. Angry Spirits
4. Electronics Awakening
5. They Are Not Pretend, Mommy
6. The Storm Is Coming
7. Clown Attack
8. Into The Closet
9. Mady Is On TV
10. You Have To Get My Sister Back
11. A Poltergeist Intrusion
12. A Poltergeist Intrusion
13. Somebody Is With Her
14. Take A Peak
15. I Feel A Little Braver
16. Into The Portal
17. The Other Side
18. Reunited
19. Let Her Go
20. Home Free

From shivering strings (used to especially good effect on "A Poltergeist Intrusion") to gentle piano (the closing lullabyesque "Home Free"), Streitenfeld's homage to the master Goldsmith has ensured that he himself has successfully brought forth his very own effective soundscape to what is renowned as being one of the greatest horror movies of all time.
