Documentary The Curse of Poltergeist Explores Horror Movie Legend



Many horror movies over the years have allegedly had death curses attached to them, but the most infamous of all is the so-called “Poltergeist Curse.” Over a decade ago, the stories were the focus of an E! True Hollywood Story, and now a full-blown documentary is on the way. Read on!

Per THR, producer and filmmaker Adam Ripp wants to get to the bottom of the supposed curse that has plagued the cast of the Steven Spielberg-produced Poltergeist film series. His upcoming doc The Curse of Poltergeist will attempt to unravel the mystery that surrounds the horror franchise.

The documentary will focus on the life and experiences of Poltergeist actor Oliver Robins, who played Robbie Freeling in the first and second installment of the franchise, as a way to explore the tragedies that have befallen those involved with the films.

It will be a journey into the unknown as I attempt to understand the meaning behind the tragedies surrounding the movie,” said Robins.It’s something that will hopefully bring closure to a dark chapter in my life.”

Many of the actors involved in the project have met dreadful ends, including Dominique Dunne who was murdered by her ex-boyfriend, and young star Heather O’Rourke, who died at the age of twelve of acute bowel obstruction right before the third film was released.

Ripp is directing The Curse of Poltergeist, which his company, Vega Baby, is financing and producing alongside Indonesia-based MD Pictures. He’s set to start shooting in November.
