The Poltergeist Scene That Legitimately Spooked The Cast

Don't get me wrong. It sounds absolutely thrilling to be haunted by a ghost. But if it's the ghost in the 1982 film "Poltergeist," I'll take a quick pass on being haunted by them. I mean, it's a poltergeist, which is arguably more upsetting than your average "walk through walls" spooky spirit. Poltergeists throw things and try to physically harm you, and if you're sweet little Carol Anne Freeling, literally suck you into another dimension from which you may never return. I'm not messing around w...

Clowns Are Up to a Different Kind of Funny Business, These Days

Who Lives to Laugh Another Day? Pennywise the Clown is a big draw at the box office right now and has, in fact, been a huge draw for me ever since I first read Stephen King's It way back in the late '80s.The trans-dimensional being that disguises “Itself" as an innocent children's performer and then frightens them to feed on their fear is nothing if not compelling. Luckily, the 2017 film really captures that fascinating terror and brings it from the book to the scr...

The Scary Dolls From Movies That Haunt Me To This Day

I am very scared of dolls. This wasn't always the case — I used to brush my American Girl doll's hair for hours, perhaps since I was never able to run a brush through my own curly hair. I very often, and very unironically, played with Barbie dolls.I can pinpoint the exact moment I knew, truly knew, my dolls were watching me. Perhaps if I hadn't watched the "Living Doll" episode of Twilight Zone , I never would have abandoned my lifelike dolls and the outfits my aunt had painstakingly sewn. Yet...
