Poltergeist Series Episode 1

It’s heeeeere! Arnie, Stuart, and Marjorie’s review of Poltergeist! This 1982 horror classic from Steven “Jaws” Spielberg and Tobe “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” Hooper comes a film that made ghosts cool again and instilled a deep fear of clowns into many children of the 80’s. It’s one of Stuart’s all time favorite films, but does it hold up almost 30 years later? And can a PG rated horror film truly be scary?

Overview
Steve Freeling lives with his wife, Diane, and their three children, Dana, Robbie, and Carol Anne, in Southern California where he sells houses for the company that built the neighborhood. It starts with just a few odd occurrences, such as broken dishes and furniture moving around by itself. However, when he realizes that something truly evil haunts his home, Steve calls in a team of parapsychologists led by Dr. Lesh to help before it's too late.
