Poltergeist Turns 37 Today!

By E.C. McMullen Jr.
What, you still haven't seen it? What's up with that?

Steven Spielberg's POLTERGEIST answers the age old question, "What If They Made A Horror Movie and Nobody Died?"

Assisting Steve in the creation of this 1980s classic was Tobe Hooper (THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE), Craig T. Nelson (THE INCREDIBLES), Zelda Rubenstein, James Karen (RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD), a Magnificent Seven of SFX and top cinema pros, and a great cast of actors who decided after this that Horror movies just really weren't for them.

Dante AligieriSATURDAY -
This writer's work was so profound, that many a modern day Televangelist has been so befuddled, as to quote from this writer's works; believing it to be in their Bible! In fact, Dante's interpretation of what the afterlife must look and feel like, not only contradicts the Christian bible, but is widely held (by western Christians who apparently don't even read their bible) as THE actual view of what happens to a person after death. In essence, more western Christians believe in Dante's version of the afterlife than they believe in their Bible's vision (and they probably never read Dante either!)! So happy birthday to -
