Description

A typical family in a quiet suburb of California face a frightening ordeal when their home is invaded by a Poltergeist. Late one night, 10-year-old Carol Anne Freeling (Heather O'Rourke) hears a voice coming from inside the television set …”They’re here”.  At first, the spirits that invade the Freeling home seem like playful children, but then they turn vengeful. When Carol Anne is pulled from this world into another, Steve and Diane Freeling (Craig T. Nelson and JoBeth Williams) turn to diminutive medium (Zelda Rubinstein) in this legendary chiller from director Tobe Hooper (Texas Chainsaw Massacre) and producer and screenwriter Steven Spielberg.


This modern classic still holds up to repeat viewings with a stellar cast and award-winning production design and visual effects. Known as a cursed film, Poltergeist continues to make us wonder about the things that go bump in the night and is the inspiration for films like Insidious and The Conjuring. (Rated PG for adult language/situations and violence)
