Poltergeist Fans Celebrate 40 Years of Suburban Horror

June 5, 2022

Steven Spielberg has always been known as the man behind some of the greatest family movies of all time, but on June 4, 1982 he produced a little film called Poltergeist – a movie that at 40 is still regarded as one of the most unsettling horror movies ever made. While the film was directed by Texas Chainsaw Massacre helmer Tobe Hooper, it is believed that Spielberg himself had a lot of input in how the movie was made, and considering how it shows a different side of the same suburban setting of E.T. that is not too wild a rumor to believe.
