Hello my Freaky Darlings,

This weeks movie is an absolute classic, Poltergeist (1982):

Besides the fact that this was a pretty creepy movie and has some rather interesting moments, like the one where the guy scratches his own face off, what really fascinated me about Poltergeist was the Poltergeist Curse. How many movies can say that they were cursed and actually back it up with some freaky stuff, like having several people associated with it die prematurely. And then there’s the fact that they used real human skeletons for the swimming pool scene. Now if that doesn’t scream horror movie then I don’t know what does. That’s also probably why they were cursed. The ghosts belonging to those skeletons probably didn’t appreciate the man-handling they received.

When was the last time you watched it? Did it give you a freight?
