THE FAN SITE
"David Furtney has been doggedly researching the various controversies surrounding Poltergeist's 'authorship' for years. He's got the most fascinating one-movie site I've ever encountered!"-Bob Martin, original editor of "FANGORIA" magazine http://www.facebook.com/UncleBob.Martin
"One of the best places to find more information is at super-fan David Furtney’s webpage on Poltergeist."-Jim Howard, Jr.-DVDFile.com http://www.dvdfile.com/reviews/review/poltergeist-25th-anniversary-edition-11553

"This article would not have been possible without the incredible archival material at Poltergeist: The Fan Site."- Devin Faraci, http://badassdigest.com/2012/01/08/schlock-corridor-poltergeist-1982-part-ii/
"'Poltergeist' is an effective thriller, not so much because of the special effects, as because Hooper and Spielberg have tried to see the movie's strange events through the eyes of the family members, instead of just standing back and letting the special effects overwhelm the cast along with the audience."
"Don’t let the name STEVEN SPIELBERG or the PG rating fool you, this film has caused countless sleepless nights and it’s done so for decades. What’s so scary about POLTERGEIST? Well first of all, it takes place somewhere many kids can easily identify with, suburbia. Any child who has recently gained mastery over their fears of cobweb strewn mansions or gothic castles are instantly sent back to square one." -
"Probably the best ghost movie I have ever seen. The movie has everything going for it. Start with the characters. The Freeling family feels like a true one. The chemistry between all those who compose the unit is astounding. I swear to god I really believed Craig T. Nelson was married to JoBeth Williams…damn…I still do! The film establishes its character from the first frame and we really get to care about these people. The film’s interpretation of suburban life is on the money. From the football game gathering, the remote control wars (funny stuff) and the parents smoking a little bit of that sweet cheeba on the side."
