They’re heeere! Warner Home Video is proud to present the newly remastered and restored Poltergeist: 25th Anniversary Edition, available on DVD for the first time on October, 15 2007.
A box-office success at the time of its release in 1982, Poltergeist was one of the most influential horror films of its generation and was nominated for three Academy Awards® including Best Original Score, Best Sound Effects Editing and Best Visual Effects.
This spine-tingling horror film is written and produced by Steven Spielberg, directed by horror maestro Tobe Hooper (Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Salem’s Lot) and stars JoBeth Williams, Craig T. Nelson, and an unforgettable Heather O’Rourke.
A perfect film for Halloween, Poltergeist is also a must-have DVD for any horror fan’s collection.
The film follows the (mis)-fortune of suburbanites Steve (Nelson) and Diane (Williams) as they suddenly experience paranormal activity in their home.
What begins as minor excitement quickly turns into nasty ghostly encounters. The disappearance of their daughter Carol Anne (O’Rourke) forces the Freelings to bring in parapsychologists and a professional exorcist to exorcise their home.
Directed by Tobe Hooper and featuring Oscar nominated visual effects by Richard Edlund, Michael Wood and Bruce Nicholson, Poltergeist is one of the most entertaining horror films of its time.
