This 13 minute EPK was given to the media by MGM in late May 1988 to promote "Poltergeist III." It features the film's trailer (note the "PG" rating from the MPAA, which was the film's original rating before Heather O'Rourke died. After she died, they re-shot the ending with a body double, and the film was given a PG-13). This EPK also includes a 5 minute behind the scenes "making of" called "Poltergeist III: The Special Effects," followed by four selected scenes from the film. Of note, these four scenes feature alternate music cues, likely because the clips were taken from the PG rated cut of the movie, before it was re-scored for the PG-13 version.

The credits note that this EPK was "revised" in April 1988, most likely to remove an interview clip with Heather O'Rourke (in the aftermath of her tragic death at the age of 12, MGM was wary of including her too much in the film's marketing).
