Description[edit | edit source]

Based on the classic 1982 film by director Tobe Hooper and producer Steven Spielberg, Poltergeist will take you inside the iconic ghost story that set the bar for paranormal thrillers ever since.

After moving to their new home in sunny Southern California, the Freeling family discovers that dreams can come true—and that nightmares can too…

One stormy night, their youngest daughter, Carol Anne, begins talking to strange, ghostly voices through a dead signal on the television set. When Carol Anne disappears, the family slowly comes to realize that she has been abducted by vengeful spirits occupying the spectral plane between the world of the living and the realm of the dead. What the Freeling family doesn’t know, is that their house was built over an old cemetery and they are in mortal danger!

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • John Murdy provides the voice of the father in the house, who says "You only moved the headstones!” YOU ONLY MOVED THE HEADSTONES!!!!".
  • Scenes involving a door slowly getting further away and coffins rising up inside the house were originally planned, but were cut for budgetary reasons.
  • All of Carol Anne's dialogue in the maze was provided by one of John Murdy's daughters.
  • The design used for the masks of the corpses in this maze were originally used in The Shining. They would go on to be used numerous times again, showing up in Universal Monsters and Holidayz in Hell in the same year, as well as many mazes in 2019.
  • The design of the Mantis Spirit was created by MageeFX years prior as just a bust, but was able to be repurposed for the maze.
