Steve Freeling lives with his wife, Diane, and their three children, Dana, Robbie, and Carol Anne, in Southern California where he sells houses for the company that built the neighborhood.

Poltergeist is my favorite movie of all time, it is a timeless classic, and it still holds up after over thirty years because it remains a thrilling, warmhearted, and poignant movie experience.
But whether this is a Spielberg film or a Tobe Hooper film doesn't change the fact that it certainly is a great film in its own right.
[i]Poltergeist[/i] is a film I can watch again and again, and it will remain just as scary—and just as good—each and every time..
