Poltergeist with Found. Director Scott Schirmer

Poltergeist with Found. Director Scott Schirmer

This week sees filmmaker Scott Schirmer joining Jinx to chat about a modern classic - Tobe Hooper's 1982 spookfest Poltergeist.

A director responsible for such films as Found., Harvest Lake, and the upcoming Plank Face, Mr. Schirmer discusses why he chose the film for discussion, why he hasn't yet seen the remake, and where the film lands on his own personal Top 7 Films of All Time.

Various topics are covered along the way, including the "Poltergeist Curse", the rumors that Spielberg secretly directed the film, and why 1982 may have been the greatest summer ever for genre films.

It's a fun talk about an amazing film with a fantastic guest, and one we think you'll greatly enjoy!

After you've listened to the episode, consider purchasing the Poltergeist movies or Found. using the Amazon links below!

    Life’s been pretty hectic recently so I’ve missed the last 4 podcasts, the solution? Scream Addicts marathon! I’ve had a blast listening to the shows, loving the writers and film makers as guests, all picking fantastic movies to talk about. Is there such a thing as a Scream addicts addict?????
