June 4, 1982
On this day in Horror History, Poltergeist made it’s theatrical debut. One of the most pivotal and memorable horror films to date, it has made history in both infamy and sorrow. Not only did it mark Steven Spielberg’s first feature film as a producer, it would prove the end of a career and stolen youth for several actresses. 5 months to the day after the film’s release, the world would lose Dominique Dunne who played the eldest daughter in the cult film, to a violent strangulation by her boyfriend. Another tragedy in the wake of the box office success of the ’82 blockbuster was the loss of Heather O'Rourke who would pass away 6 years later at the age of 12.
In the midst of the heartbreak and the less profitable sequels that followed, the film that would rightfully contest the “R” Rating which it initially received, would become one of the most terrifying and brilliant PG films of all time.

Carol Anne: Can I take my goldfish to school?
Diane: Sweetheart, do you remember last night when you woke up, and you said "They're here.'?
Carol Anne: Uh huh
Diane: Well, who did you mean?
Carol Anne: The TV People.
