Even families who are living the seemingly most idyllic lives are subject to having their American dreams shatter. That’s certainly the case for the Freeling family, which is leading a quiet, successful life in an Orange County, California planned community, in the hit 1982 supernatural horror film, ‘Poltergeist.’ However, their happy existence is shockingly tested when their youngest child, Carol Anne, is kidnapped from their home during a poltergeist intrusion.

‘Poltergeist’ was directed by Tobe Hooper, and written and produced by Steven Spielberg. It stars JoBeth Williams, Craig T. Nelson, Heather O’Rourke, and Beatrice Straight.
