The last you want to get about a gay movie is that gays go dancing around in discos, does housework better than girls, and behaves in that ‘oh, I am so pretty’ way, twitching butts as they sashay down the walkway.

About a newly weds Marc and Emma who move into a haunted house stayed by 5 gay ghosts, Marc’s extra vision makes him wonder if he is turning queer. His photos get taken when he is showering, clothes are pressed, and pictures of huge penises appear throughout the house.

Well, Poltergay is campy and colourful and at the same time lame and lackluster. Yes, it could have been an intelligent spoof of the classic Poltergeist but it wasn’t. Yes, it could have more substance and plot, but it didn’t. No, it did not help that the 5 ghosts are just cardboard stereotypical views of gays.

With an original storyline like this, the movie had the potential to do a lot more than just more gay and heterosexual jokes and disco music. 5 ghosts caught at the basement for 20 years could definitely pack more emotion and laughs with the right balance.

Like a party, you just go and have fun and leave for home forgetting all about it the next day.

Poltergay – Happy movie, and that’s about it
