Screening as part of the series PERFECT STRANGERS: THE FILMS BEHIND STRANGER THINGS




This creative collision between Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall and Tobe Hooper is the real estate horror film of all time. Starring Craig T. Nelson as a patriarch of a haunted household and featuring some of the creepiest supporting characters of the '80s (wee blondie Heather O'Rourke as Carol Anne, the incredible Zelda Rubinstein as Tangina Barrons), POLTERGEIST is The Great Ghost Story for this and all future generations, hitching up the Indian burial ground angle with a more current medium – the spectral jerks come through the TV! The film that made us all afraid to watch the tube will give you bumps on your arms and static on your set. Make sure to unplug your TV and dig all the corpses out of your back yard before you come to this show!! (Zack Carlson)
