Horror 101 – Episode 41: Poltergeist

Episode 41: Poltergeist – March 29th, 2015

They’re Here!

Welcome back to the Horror 101 show. Every generation has that one film that for some reason, because it fell under the radar both young and old watched it together. And they should NOT have. By the time the film was over the damage was done. No one was sleeping for a very long time. It was whispered about at the playground AND in the work place. And if you were one of the people who watched it at a young age it still freaks you out when you recall it 30 years later. It was that powerful. And we have one of those movies for you this time.

Take the directors of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Jaws, put them together with a frightening Jerry Goldsmith score and ILM special effects and what do you get? You get Poltergeist. Was the film cursed because they used real corpses in the production? How could this frightening film get by with a PG rating? We have 6 podcasters lending a hand on this powerful movie. Join us for another walk down 80s horror memory lane as we give the Horror 101 treatment to Poltergeist.
