The film spawned two sequels, a non sequitur TV series, and now, thirty-three years later, it has an official remake. Despite the fact that POLTERGEIST hardly needs a […]Read On »

Although parts of CONVICTION have no doubt been fictionalized to make a better story, the heart of the film is what in fact happened.

The entire process took eighteen years.
