This is an original script from the 1982 movie Poltergeist, a classic horror film produced by Steven Spielberg. The script is a first draft, dated February, 1981. Pages show age and cover pages have expected wear for a script over 40 years old. Script is complete from title page to end. Strange and creepy happenings beset an average California family, the Freelings -- Steve Craig T.Nelson, Diane (JoBeth Williams), teenaged Dana (Dominique Dunne), eight-year-old Robbie (Oliver Robins), and five-year-old Carol Ann (Heather O'Rourke) -- when ghosts commune with them through the television set. Initially friendly and playful, the spirits turn unexpectedly menacing, and, when Carol Ann goes missing, Steve and Diane turn to a parapsychologist and eventually an exorcist for help.
