Poltergeist movie series

Redirected from Poltergeist movies

The Poltergeist Movies are a series of horror films directed by Steven Spielberg from 1982 to 1988.

In the first movie, the family's 5 year old daughter, Carol Ann, is taken thru a television set by a group of ghosts[?] and held hostage until a spiritual healer and a ghost expert are brought in, allowing her mom to also pass thru the tv to the other world as they call it, and save her. The two sequels (1986 and 1988) followed a path of different ghosts stalking Carol Ann and her other family members too.

Some of the stars in the movie suffered unfortunate fate, for which the movie series has been dubbed as having a Poltergeist Curse.

Among the stars on these movies were:

A tv series, Poltergeist, The Legacy[?] is a spin-off of this movie series.
