the nightmare begins...

POLTERGEIST remains one of the all-time classic horror films ever created, credited no doubt to Tobe Hooper and Steven Spielberg.

Here we meet the all-American Freeling family; the parents (Craig T. Nelson and JoBeth Williams), older daughter (the late Dominique Dunn), younger brother (Oliver Robins) and little Carol Anne (the late Heather O'Rourke). Things become strange when storms and household occurances wreak terror over the household, culminating in the abduction of Carol Anne through a portal in the closet.

A kindly investigator of the paranormal (Beatrice Straight) and medium Tangina Barrons (Zelda Rubinstein) are called in to clean the house of the spirits that plague it and to rescue Carol Anne from the "TV people"...

A heart-stopping adventure with breathtaking special effects. Followed by POLTERGEIST II-THE OTHER SIDE and finally POLTERGEIST 3 which was released after Heather O'Rourke's untimely death.
