Creepy Occurrences: Poltergeist Movie

There were some strange occurrences reported by Jo Beth Williams during the filming of the Poltergeist movies. She said that in the evenings when she went home the lights were on when she was SURE she had turned them off. It creeped her out. Four people who worked on the movies have passed away, as well. My source for this information is the show: “E! True Hollywood Story, Curse of Poltergeist (2002)” It was very interesting and creepy, too! But I couldn’t tear myself away. . .I had to watch it. . .

One of the comments on the IMDB expresses my feelings on this special perfectly: “I don’t know which is scarier the Poltergeist Movies or this documentary E! made about them. This Documentary will shake you up a little bit, as E! talks about all the freakish events that took place during each of the three Poltergeist films including one very horrific event that took place during Poltergeist II involving the bodies that were brought in as props. Everyone on set was told they were fake, Craig T. Nelson discovered that these bodies were real. The stage hands got the props mixed up and got a cargo of real bodies.”

1982: Dominique Dunn died at age 22 when her ex-boyfriend turned stalker killed her just outside her home. It was such a sad story. She was with a guy who was reportedly scared and didn’t go out to help her. This guy who didn’t help was one of her costars from the show she was working on called “V”. read more. . . 

1985: Julian Beck who played the ‘bad spirit’ in Poltergeist II, died of stomach cancer.

1987: Will Sampson who played the ‘good spirit’ in Poltergeist II, died after receiving a heart-lung transplant.

1988: Heather O’Rourke, the young girl in all three movies. She died of a septic infection

    Also, the information in the E! Special about the ending to part three is wrong. For the real story, check out this page:

    Contrary to what the director claimed, there WAS an original ending filmed for the movie before Heather O’Rourke passed away. After she died, they re-shot the ending using a body double stand in.
