Ripping Notes
ENG: This is my personal rip of the spanish DVD. It contains in the same
Matroska file the original 5.1 english track, and a spanish-dub audio track,
and two subtitles (spanish and english) selectable during playback.

You need H.263 and AC3 codecs to play this file. I recommend using VLC Media
Player, as it uses its own codecs.

ESP: Este es mi propio rip del DVD espa¦ol. Contiene en el mismo archivo
Matroska la pista de audio original en ingles, el doblaje en espa¦ol y
subtitulos en espa¦ol e ingles, todos intercambiables durante la reproduccion.

Es necesario tener instalados los codecs H.263 y AC3 para reproducirlo.
Recomiendo usar el VLC Media Player, pues ya los trae incluidos.

Release Notes


A young family are visited by ghosts in their home. At first the ghosts appear
friendly, moving objects around the house to the amusement of everyone, then
they turn nasty and start to terrorise the family before they "kidnap" the
youngest daughter. Written by Rob Hartill

While living an an average family house in a pleasant neighborhood, the
youngest daughter of the Freeling family, Carol Anne (Heather O'Rourke), seems
to be connecting with the supernatural through a dead channel on the televison.
It is not for long when the mysterious beings enter the house's walls. At first
seeming like harmless ghosts, they play tricks and amuse the family, but they
take a nasty turn- they horrify the family to death with angry trees and
murderous dolls, and finally abduct Carol Anne into her bedroom closet, which
seems like the entrance to the other side. Written by Thomas O'Rourke.

* The hands which pull the flesh off the investigator's face in the
bathroom mirror are Steven Spielberg's.

* The weird way the family members descend the stairs at the beginning of
the film was created by having the actors walk backward up the stairs and
playing the film in reverse. The same effect was used later in the movie during
the scene showing video playback of the ghosts.

* The house that gets sucked into a black hole at the end was actually a
model about four feet across. The model took several weeks to complete. The shot
was arranged with the camera placed directly above model, which was mounted over
an industrial strength vacuum generator (the front door was facing directly up,
straight at the camera). The model also had about 100 wires attached to various
points of the structure. These wires went down through the back of the house,
and down through the vacuum collection sack. The camera was turned on, and took
15 seconds to wind up to the required 300 frames per second. The vacuum was
turned on, the wires were yanked, and several SFX guys blasted the house with
pump-action shotguns. The entire scene was over in about two seconds, and they
had to wait until the film was developed before they knew if they would have to
do it again. Luckily, they got it right on the first take. The finished scene
was sent to Steven Spielberg, who was on location shooting E.T.: The
Extra-Terrestrial (1982). He gave it to a projectionist, who assumed it was
dailies from ET and was startled by the images. Spielberg had the remains of the
model encased in perspex, and it is now sitting on his piano. The model itself
was worth well over $25,000.

* Steven Spielberg worked on this movie and E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial
(1982) literally back to back. Principal photography on Poltergeist ended in
August of 1981, then Spielberg took a few weeks off and began work on E.T.
Spielberg also supervised the visual effects for both films simultaneously
(which were produced at Industrial Light & Magic under the supervision of
Richard Edlund and Dennis Muren). Once post production work on Poltergeist began
in early 1982, Spielberg was in total control. He was responsible for the
editing of the film (Spielberg's usual editor Michael Khan edited this film
while Carol Littleton edited E.T), the final sound mixes and loops, the
supervision of the visual effects, and the selection of Jerry Goldsmith as the
composer of the score. Poltergeist and E.T opened to theaters nationwide only a
week between each other during the summer of 1982, Poltergeist on June 4th and
E.T. one week later on June 11th.

* Steven Spielberg had a major hand in the production of this film at the
same time that he was directing E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial (1982). He later
said "If E.T. was a whisper, Poltergeist was a scream".

* As an homage to his friend George Lucas, Spielberg populated the
children's bedroom with Star Wars toys. He did the same in E.T.: The
Extra-Terrestrial (1982).

* To make the ghosts' movements seem more ethereal when they appeared
walking down the stairs on the monitor, the director had the actors walk very
slowly backwards up the staircase, then reversed the film in the final cut.

* Mrs. Freeling's line "Mmmm... smell that mimosa." is taken directly from
The Uninvited (1944).

* Movie on the TV in an early bedroom scene is A Guy Named Joe (1943), a
film about a pilot who returns to the world as a ghost. It was later remade by
Steven Spielberg into Always (1989).

* The sign at the Holiday Inn reads, Welcome Dr. Fantasy and Friends. Dr.
Fantasy is a nickname for producer Frank Marshall.

* Heather O'Rourke, who played the little girl Carol-Anne, and Dominique
Dunne, who played the teenage daughter, are buried in the same cemetery:
Westwood Memorial Park in Los Angeles. Dunne was strangled into brain-death by
her boyfriend in 1982, the year of the film's release. Six years later, O'Rourke
died of intestinal stenosis.

* The film was originally given a R rating, but the filmmakers protested
successfully and got a PG rating (the PG-13 rating did not exist at the time).

* During the scene where Robbie (Oliver Robins) is being strangled, the
clown's arms became extremely tight and Robbins started to choke. When he
screamed out, "I can't breathe!" Steven Spielberg and Tobe Hooper thought that
the boy was ad-libbing and just instructed him to look at the camera. When
Spielberg saw Robbins's face turning purple, he ran over and removed the clown's
arms from Robbins's neck.

* The sound effect for the beast that attacks the house at the end of the
movie is the source for the current MGM lion roar.

* When writers Michael Grais and Mark Victor first met with Steven
Spielberg, they were being hired to write the film that eventually became Always
(1989). When Spielberg happened to mention he also had an idea for a ghost
story, Grais and Victor said they'd rather write the ghost story than Always and
that's how they got this job.

* The skeletons that emerge from the swimming pool while Diane searches for
help are actual skeletons. JoBeth Williams didn't know this until after the
scene was shot.

* The crawling steak was done by using a real steak which was laid over a
slot cut between the tiles in the counter top. Two wires were fastened to the
bottom of the steak and a special effects operator, hidden under the counter,
simply moved the wires to make the steak crawl like a caterpillar. A similar
operation was done when Diane presents to Steven the chairs that move across the
room by themselves. A wire was fastened to one of the chair's legs under the
set. An operator first wobbled the chair with the wire, then dragged the chair
across to its destination.

* Shirley MacLaine was offered a starring role in the film, but backed out
in order to make Terms of Endearment (1983).

* The shot of the chairs that position themselves in the amazing balancing
act on the table was all done in one take. As the camera panned along with
JoBeth Williams, who was getting some cleaning materials, several crew members
quickly set an already organized pyramid of chairs on the table, then took the
single chairs away before the camera scrolled back. See Goofs entry.

* JoBeth Williams was hesitant about shooting the swimming pool scene
because of the large amount of electrical equipment positioned over and around
the pool. In order to comfort her, Steven Spielberg crawled in the pool with her
to shoot the screen. Spielberg told her, "Now if a light falls in, we will both
fry." The strategy worked and Williams got in the pool.

* The Rams (then Los Angeles Rams) vs. Saints football game seen near the
beginning of the film, is taken from a Monday Night Football game in 1980.

* The scene in which Diane opens the bedroom door and is met with a fearsome
scream was the first to be filmed.

* The scene in which Marty hallucinates in the bathroom was the last to be

* Both of the terrors that plague Robbie came from Steven Spielberg's own
fears as a child, a fear of clowns and a tree outside his window.

* Steven Spielberg and Tobe Hooper wanted virtually unknown actors to play
the Freelings because they wanted to add a realism to the family that would
off-balance the ghost story. They felt that if the audience watched well-known
stars, then it would take away from the realistic feel of the characters.

* The swirling, flickering lights coming from the closet during the rescue
scene were achieved using a very simple effect by having an aquarium full of
water in front of a spotlight. Then a fan blew on the surface of the water to
make it swirl.

* The house used to film this movie is located in Simi Valley, California
where it still stands today. The family who owned it when this movie was filmed
still live there today.

* In addition to the two times that the Beast appeared in the movie (the
face that appeared in the closet and the creature that guarded the kid's door),
the script had it appearing during the scene where the family and investigators
are looking at the tape of the manifestation. The giant ghost that they saw
visually slowly resolved itself into the image of a face of a cruel old man: the
man we know in the later films as 'Reverend Henry Kane.'

* A common translation of the German word "Poltergeist" is "rumbling

* When Carol Anne's mother tells her to stop watching the static because it
will hurt your eyes, she turns on a movie and it is Go for Broke! (1951).

* During all the horrors that proceeded while filming Poltergeist (1982),
only one scene really scared Heather O'Rourke: that in which she had to hold
onto the headboard, while a wind machine blew toys into the closet behind her.
She fell apart; Steven Spielberg stopped everything, took her in his arms, and
said that she would not have to do that scene again.

* The movie's line "They're here!" was voted as the #69 movie quote by the
American Film Institute (out of 100).

* Drew Barrymore was considered for the role of Carol Anne, but Steven
Spielberg wanted someone more angelic. It was Barrymore's audition for this
role, however, that landed her a part in E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial (1982).

* In reality, Craig T. Nelson and JoBeth Williams are only 14 and 11 years
older than Dominique Dunne, who plays their teen-aged daughter.

* Stephen King was briefly approached to write the screenplay. It would have
been the first written by King directly for the screen, but the parties could
not agree on the terms.
