The Movie: 'Poltergeist' (1982)
The Scene: The Freeling family is all curled up in the parents' bed. They're typical, living their early 80's, suburban lives. It's normal to the point of banality, but a series of inexplicable occurrences starts to intrude into their Spielbergian postcards. A malevolent entity is encroaching upon their home and it has its sights set on their youngest, Carol Ann (Heather O'Rourke). Carol Ann awakens. The TV speaks to her, voices that only she can hear. Smoky tendrils creep out from the television, slithering across the room. The spirit plunges into the wall and tremors rock the home. As Steve (Craig Nelson) and Diane (JoBeth Williams) awaken, Carol Ann warns, "They're here."
