I'd love to see/hear Dr. Macabre do a remix with both Poltergeist and Voodoo Nightmare combined as one track as love them both equally! And then have Marc Trauner do a re-remix! ;)

One of the highest selling hardcore records in The Netherlands, 8,000+ copies sold.

This is what Guillaume Leroux had to say about the track Poltergeist, commented on one of the Poltergeist videos on YouTube:
I have to admit that i've never been into labeling any of my shit. hardcore, doomcore, what ever you call it, i've never tried to fit into any of the so called "styles". Especially with this track i only made with "fuck the party" in mind. long intro, slower than anything at that time. I was supposed to be the most hated track ever. Fun to see how wrong i was. Cheers.

All hardcore lovers know this record. "Poltergeist" was in its day when it came out an instant classic. Multiple plays on one hardcore party was normal. And the crowd loved it. I've seen a dance floor on a "Thunderdome" in Antwerp, Belgium go wild. 20.000 Ravers broke loose after the "There Here" sample from the Poltergeist movie. Then a heavy 909 bassdrum kicks in escorted by 909 claps. Then one of the most scariest synthleads comes in. Afterwards many times sampled, rebuild, used...like Rave Creator's "New Mind".
On the B side however we find "Voodoo Nightmare" a strange track compared to the A side. It starts out with a drumband riff accomplished by a break beat. A nervous Juno sound accents the beat when a deep basslead goes,hard and growling, testing your woofers. A man's voice shouts "What are you looking at buddy, you want a piece of me, come on, come on". Drum and bass acid tekkno of the finest hour is what your getting. I think this is the better track of the two, but you can't deny a large audience. "Poltergeist" put Dr. Macabre on the hardcore map, and listining to "Voodoo Nightmare" there is intelligent hardcore.
