Poltergeist :- Watch Poltergeist Now on Youtube on Fire, A family’s home is haunted by a host of ghosts. A young family are visited by ghosts in their home. At first the ghosts appear friendly, moving objects around the house to the amusement of everyone, then they turn nasty and start to terrorise the family before they “kidnap” the youngest daughter. Horror films often do not get their do, and the 7.1 rating for Poltergeist shows that this trend will most likely continue. Clearly an influential film by Chainsaw director Tobe Hooper, Poltergeist reached for, and achieved, everything that the earlier Amityville Horror failed to be; namely, scary, credible, and well acted. Poltergeist, in a nutshell, is a story of suburban California family that discovers the darker side of the American Dream when their youngest daughter, Carol Ann, makes contact with evil spirits through the family television set. “They’re here”, never fails to send chills down my spine as I recall seeing this film for the first time as a teenager. Perhaps 10 to 15 more years will finally lend the credibility to this film to finally place it among the classics in modern horror cinema. What do you get when you put Steven Spielberg, Tobe Hooper, Jerry Goldsmith, and Beatrice Straight in a big budget MGM motion picture about a haunted house? You get “Poltergeist” a top of the pick, no holds barred, roller coaster ride through the supernatural world and back to ours. “Poltergeist” explores the side affects of a haunted house and it’s effects on a normal suburban family who inhabits the house. Steve Freeling is a successful realestate agent who has a nice house and a loving wife, with a family to die for. There is the spunky, rebellious eldest daughter, as portrayed gloriously by the late Dominique Dunne, may she rest in peace. The sporty young son, and the cute, innocent youngest daughter, Carol Ann, of whom the story is based around. The Freelings’ are a happy American family whose lives are turned upside down when they realize their house in ‘haunted’ and the ‘poltergeists’ kidnap the youngest member of the family. In the film that pursues, Steve and his wife Diane do everything in their power to get her back, with the aid of Dr. Lesh, played out Oscar worthy by Beatrice Straight, and her assistants. Horrors and traumas ensue.
