Several people are hunted by a cruel serial killer who kills his victims in their dreams. When the survivors are trying to find the reason for being chosen, the murderer won't lose any chance to kill them as soon as they fall asleep.
A young couple move into a new apartment, only to be surrounded by peculiar neighbors and occurrences. When the wife becomes mysteriously pregnant, paranoia over the safety of her unborn child begins controlling her life.
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. Written by
The Freeling family finds out their house is haunted and their young daughter is taken by the ghosts.They're facing a phenomenon that's called poltergeist.Tangina, a spiritual medium, comes to help the family.Poltergeist (1982) is directed by Tobe Hooper.It's co-written and produced by Steven Spielberg.Frank Marshall is the second producer.So some true talents are behind this film.Also some great acting there.Craig T. Nelson and JoBeth Williams are terrific as Steven and Diane Freeling.Great child acting by Heather O'Rourke (deceased) as Carol Anne, Dominique Dunne (deceased) as Dana and Oliver Robins as Robbie.Thew late great Zelda Rubinstein is brilliant as Tangina Barrons.The late great Beatrice Straight is amazing as Dr. Lesh.James Karen is magnificent as Mr. Teague.This 30-year old film is a gem of the horror genre.It genuinely scares you.And isn't that what a good horror film is supposed to do? Like the scene with the corpses.Horrifying.You don't want to miss this one.
