Poltergeist 25th Anniversary: Deluxe Edition (DVD)
A typical family in a quiet suburb of a normal California faces a frightening ordeal when its home is invaded by a Poltergeist. Late one night, 10-year-old Carol Anne Freeling (Heather O'Rourke) hears a voice coming from inside the television set ... At first, the spirits that invade the Freeling's home seem like playful children. But then they turn angry. And when Carol Anne is pulled from this world into another, Steve and Diane Freeling (Craig T. Nelson and JoBeth Williams--In the Land of Women) turn to an exorcist (Zelda Rubinstein) in this horror classic from director Tobe Hooper (Texas Chainsaw Massacre films) and producer and screenwriter Steven Spielberg.]]>

The story is about little curious Carol Ann who unleashes a terrifying secret upon her family after discovering evil spirits living within her T.V. The supernatural events appear to be fun and quite amusing at first, but the entity soon turns into a nightmare when her brother is attacked by a monstrous man-eating tree!!!
To make matters worse, Carol Ann herself has been kidnapped and taken into another dimension where the demons torture her trying to convice her to lead them to "the light". Now, the only way out is in, as her parents must travel into the horrors of the afterlife and save their daughter from "the beast".
(Do NOT read this part if you haven't seen the movie!)
The family saves Carol Ann with the help of an old psychic-lady who somehow eerily knows about the light. It's all over now(OR IS IT?!!) as they plan to pack their bags move out of the house the next following day. However, the spirits return and try to kill Robby, Carol Ann's brother after taking possession of a murderous stuffed clown-doll.
Meanwhile, the mother is unexpectadly attacked after noticing that her children are in danger. The Special-FX here are quite amazing but hella freaky at the same time. She escapes the demons, but her kids are still locked in their own room from the supernatural-power that wants them both DEAD. They barely make it out, as the closet turns out to be yet another portal back to the afterlife.
They all make it out(luckily!), and the home begins to crumble into some kind of ball as they watch it dissapear in horror! It turns out that the home that was bought was originally built over a cemetary (along w/the other houses), which explains about the hauntings which took place. They drive to a far-off motel and continue their life. But before they get settled, the father puts the T.V. outside on the deck.(which is obvious why.)
I wasn't around during the year of 1982, but I'm glad I was able to get the chance to see this movie when it was aired over-and-over again on TNT. And man, it scared the hell outta me! This is better than "The Amityville Horror" (which also wasn't that good of a movie). It's kinda creepy the way Carol Ann communicates through the T.V. (that scene still sends chills down my spine.) The pool scene was also an entertaining part and was really unpredictable! It's oldskool, but the Special-FX overall, are some of the best I've ever seen in a movie!!...WATCH ALONE AT NIGHT, IF YOU DARE! ^_^
