Poltergeist Poster Give-A-Way!


Last night at The Colonial Theatre I had the pleasure of seeing Poltergeist one of my favorite horror films of all time in 35mm. At most of these screenings at the Colonial there is usually a poster made specifically for the event, with last night's poster being handled by local artist JD Korejko.
JD who also did the Elm Street 4 & 5 poster give-a-way we did a month or so back, and as you can see below hit one out of the park once again!
The idea of reversing the hands on the other side of the television is a really interesting idea since usually we always see Carol Anne staring at the TV from the outside!


Ok So Here's All You Have All You Have To Do Enter For This Give-A-Way, Post Below In The Board's Comment Section (Not The SMF FacePage Please) and Say What Your Favorite Scene is from the Poltergeist Trilogy. While 2 and 3 are nowhere near as good as one, I grew up on them and enjoy some of the creepy moments provided by "Kane"! 

The Deadline for this Give-A-Way is Midnight August 20th
so have your entry in by then and please also include your Email Address in your Comment so I can reach you if "This House Is Clean"!
 All entries will be given a Number and a Winner will be picked out using the Quick Random Number Generator on my phone, so best of luck and thanks playing!

  1. Favorite scene out of the entire trilogy: The puddle/pool sequence that starts in the parking garage from Poltergeist III.

    1. That's high on my list also, the third movie is very underappreciated i.m.o., I liked it better then 2

    2. Kane's creep factor in part II is much higher, but I enjoy both sequels. They are sloppy, but not lacking of entertainment, for sure.

  2. Hands down the Clown Doll scene from the first film is my favorite scene and by favorite scene I mean the scene that prevented 11 year old me from sleeping soundly for weeks in the sleep in the dead center of the bed and never look underneath for any reason kind of way.

  3. My favorite scene is when the guy rips off his face in the bathroom. Cool effects and damn creepy for a PG movie.

  4. There are far too many since this is one of my favorite trilogy's. That being said I am going with the chair stacking scene in part 1. Frak that still gives me the chills now. It seems so possible to me yet so terrifying

  5. Possessed steak/maggot chicken. Demonic meats get me every time.

  6. The entire kitchen/chairs sequence from the first film has always been my favorite. In particular, the panning shot where the chairs mysteriously get stacked up on the table. I had always loved that scene any ways, but when I learned how it was done; the simple yet incredibly difficult way the effect was achieved, it absolutely blew my mind.

  7. It's got to be the face ripping scene. I pretty much wore out my VHS tape rewatching it again and again.

  8. my favorite scene in the 1st film was when the mother falls in the pool and all the dead bodies pop up and attack her in the 2nd film it would be when the power tools attack the family's car and in the 3rd film it would be when it ended as that film never should have been made

  9. Believe it or not the scene that always gives me chills is when Carol Ann's voice says "There's somebody here..." and they hear the sounds of her above running and screaming and then this huge booming coming behind her. Long before we learned the back story of what exactly was chasing her in the other films, this was in my mind one of the scariest scenes, mostly of all when the mother screams "She's just a baby!" There's nothing more unsettling than hearing a young child scream. I loved that in the original we knew close to nothing about whatever was happening in the house. That scene reminded me a lot of The Entity and thought it was very powerful. You go from such a touching moment when she moves through her mother's soul, to the aftermath of whatever monster or thing was following her. Powerful stuff.

  10. Favorite scene in Poltergeist 3, when Donna came out of Tangina's body/chest.

  11. The scene that freaked me out the most as a kid was the one were The Incredible Hulk comes riding by on a doll horse. When it comes to random terror, it doesn't get more freakish than that!

  13. Either the face ripping scene or 'You said don't go into the light` scene where the giant skull comes blaring out!

  14. My fave scene is when the dad steve is yelling at his boss "you son of a bitch you left the bodies and you only moved the headstones" and the bodies are all coming up from the ground and the boss is like wtf. Amazing!

  15. I just love when Carol Ann is in front of the TV and says, "They're Heeere". Of course, the clown scene is creepy since I hate clowns.

  16. In Part 2 when Kane says, "Let me IN"....... Creepy guy

  17. In Poltergeist 2 when Robbie's braces attack him. As a kid that had braces this scene scared the shit out of me. Hell, braces hurt enough without them going horror movie crazy on you face.

  18. The Poltergeist trilogy has SOOOOO many memorable moments - but if I had to pick just one, I might choose the scene in the first film where one of the para-investigators rips his own face off. I saw Poltergeist when I was 8 or 9 in the theater and I was just terrified when that scene happened. I couldn't even look at the screen during most of it. Now, of course, I love it for giving me such a scare back then.

  19. My favorite scene is definitely the clown scene in the first film. After seeing Child's Play at too young of an age, the clown scene added to the terror seeing it.

  20. My favorite scene is when the cameras begin to track the activity coming from upstairs, which is revealed to be the souls of the dead coming down the staircase.

  21. The tree coming alive in part 1. That gave me nightmares since I had a similar-looking tree outside my window as a kid and when a thunderstorm came along, I did everything I could to not think of that scene.

  22. I love the scenes with the mom and Carol Ann before the shit really hits the fan. The scenes where the mom treats it like a novelty. Sure, the stacking chairs frightened her...but being pulled across the kitchen floor is so fun!

  23. My favorite scene is from the first film when the clown doll comes to life. Man that scared the hell out of me when I was a kid and it is still freaky today.

  24. It's already been mentioned, but easily the part where the guy rips his own face off at the sink. Just a completely unexpected moment for a PG-rated film associated with Spielberg. Loved it.

  25. Come on, guys. The best scene in Poltergeist is totally when the lady walks away from the kitchen table and a few seconds later, all the chairs are stacked up. It wasn't scary, but it was one of those "what the truck just happened?" moments.

    Show me some love.

  26. I would its gotta be the scene where the son is being eaten by the tree, scare the crap out of me and a kid and still is creepy to this day!

  27. Have to agree. Hands down, tequila worm puke scene. Stayed with me and also had the fright flicks card with this image. probably why it features so prominently in my memory.

  28. My favorite scene is where the paranormal investigator rips his own face off. I wish they'd show screenings of those movies over near here again.
