Instrumental Score

Primary Composer(s): Jerry Goldsmith

With the score for Poltergeist II Jerry Goldsmith approached the music from a totally different point of view than the first Poltergeist score. The original was fully orchestral with “otherworldly” choral passages at key moments and fiercely aggressive action music was a highlight. This sequel score is far richer and smoother in terms of orchestration. The chorus is more Omen-like in design with large quotes of “God Is In His Holy Temple” describing the forces of evil at work. But far more noticeable in this score is Goldsmith’s use of electronics that lend the score a mystical and mysterious feel greatly adding to the more magical elements of the story.

‘Carol Anne’s Theme’ is again the main theme for the film. This time, however, a rousing and powerful Indian motif for French horns opens the score and is just as predominant. The aggressor is a wonderfully haunting theme for Kane.Update Us
