Poltergay is a French horror-comedy film that was released in 2006. Directed and written by Eric Lavaine, the movie stars Clovis Cornillac, Julie Depardieu, and Lionel Abelanski in the lead roles. The story of the film is centered around a gay couple who buy an old mansion that is haunted by the ghosts of the people who died there. The movie begins with a group of people who are holding a seance in a candle-lit room. They are trying to communicate with the spirits of the dead, but the seance goes wrong, and they end up unleashing a group of angry ghosts. The next scene cuts to a gay couple named David (Cornillac) and his partner Lenny (Abelanski). They are searching for a perfect place to set up a nightclub for the LGBT community. They come across an old mansion that is for sale and decide to buy it.

After the purchase, David and Lenny move to the mansion and start renovating it. However, they soon realize that the house is haunted by the ghosts of the people who used to live there. The ghosts have no intention of leaving and start interfering with David and Lenny's renovations. This makes them call in a team of ghostbusters who are led by a medium named Emma (Depardieu).

Emma and her team arrive at the mansion and start to investigate the haunting. They discover that the ghosts are angry because they were killed by the same group of people who were present at the seance in the beginning. Emma and her team decide to set up a seance of their own to communicate with the ghosts and ask them to leave.

The seance goes wrong, and the ghostbusters are trapped in the mansion along with David, Lenny, and the ghosts. They all have to work together to find a way to get out of the mansion alive. The movie ends with a surprising twist that will leave the audience smiling.

Poltergay is a fun and entertaining horror-comedy that has moments of suspense, humor, and heart. The movie manages to balance both the horror and comedy elements without becoming too cheesy or ridiculous. The acting performances are top-notch, and the chemistry between the lead characters is excellent.

Clovis Cornillac and Lionel Abelanski make a great duo, and their portrayal of a gay couple is realistic and respectful. They are tender and sweet with each other, and their love story is one of the highlights of the movie. Julie Depardieu also shines in her role as Emma, the tough and no-nonsense medium who is not afraid to take charge.

The special effects used in the movie are impressive, and the haunted mansion is creepy and atmospheric. The ghosts are scary enough to provide a sense of dread, but they are not too frightening to put off the casual horror movie fan.

The soundtrack of the movie is also worth a mention, as it adds to the overall atmosphere of the movie. There are some great songs that are used in the film, including a cover of the classic song "My Way" by Sid Vicious.
