Poltergeist > Wiki


First film of the Poltergeist series.

Dominque Dunne was later murdered by her boyfriend, she was the first actor who would fall victim to the so called "Poltergiest curse".

There has been a lot of dispute as to who directed the film.  But several people who worked on the set have put those rumors to rest by saying that Tobe Hooper was the director during the entire production.

Poltergeist is the first of the horror trilogy. An old fashion ghost story told through the use of modern day technology. Stephen Spielberg wrote and produced this movie and he had horror director Tobe Hooper direct for the most part. For Mr. Hooper besides it being a paycheck, it was a chance to work within the Hollywood movie studio system (he would be a sucker if he didn't take the chance). Sadly he would become a victim of the Poltergeist curse because he never worked on a major studio production …
