I didn’t say I’m not a fan of Poltergeist - it’s my favorite house. But it also is one of the weaker houses I’d say is HOTY of late.To each their own, but I disagree with most of this outside of AoV/B&T. I'd rather have consistency.
We had that kinda house line-up with 23 & 24 and those years were rough.
Again, you may not be a fan of Poltergeist, but it does appear it is favored very strongly by a lot of people as an all-timer. I think Scarecrow gets an extra bump because it was the first original "original" in a long time that knocked it out of the park.
You got a winner when a majority of people's reviews are saying their 9th ranked house is still fine.
