Poltergeists

A compelling examination of poltergeist phenomena.

At least thirty-five police officers around the world -- in at least thirteen separate cases dating back to 1952 -- claim to have witnessed some form of poltergeist activity. Nine of them were assaulted by what they say was a poltergeist, but none was seriously injured and no one has been charged nor have the mysteries been solved definitively.

There are numerous cases of "hauntings" studied throughout the world every year, many of which hold up to close scrutiny. Poltergeists takes a look at a number of these in-depth case studies:

  • An eleven-year old boy inhabited by a poltergeist, who causes photographs to become moving pictures and elevates a chair with a police officer sitting on it;
  • Fourteen-year-old Tina Resch who, with her anger, appears to make glasses airborne, move tables, and send telephones flying;
  • The Hodgson family who are terrorized by flying Lego pieces that are hot to the touch and furniture that moves of its own accord, usually in the presence of eleven-year-old Janet;
  • Eleven-year-old Virginia Campbell who seems to cause heavy furniture to move at home and desks to float at school, always in twenty-eight-day cycles;
  • A twelve-year-old Kentucky boy who -- subconsciously -- moves heavy objects in the presence of two parapsychologists watching him closely for signs of trickery.

For his investigations, Clarkson interviewed hundreds of witnesses, paranormal experts, psychologists, professors, magicians, and skeptics. While it may raise as many questions as it answers, Poltergeists is an undeniably fascinating study of the paranormal.
