Poltergeist ★★★★

There's a reason I didn't see this as a kid, and I probably still shouldn't have watched it. It's got everything that scared me as a child: weird noises, ghosts, static, trees, clowns, Craig T. Nelson.

Always thought it was an Indian burial ground though, but no, just a regular cemetery. Which makes me wonder: either the houses in this development have really shallow foundations, or those bodies were buried really deep. And was that area of Southern California populated by enough white people to fill that vast valley and a nearby mountain with graveyard?

But anyway, it's not the repression of Indian genocide that bursts forth in supernatural horror, but rather the mundane cheapness of late 20th century capitalism.
