“They're here” !! And they seem almost whimsical at first, playing stack-the-chair games in the kitchen of the Freeling's suburban home. Then things turn darker. A storm erupts, a tree attacks, little Carol Anne Freeling is whisked into a spectral void. As her family confronts a chain reaction of horrors and fights to bring the youngster back, something else is here too: a benchmark in Hollywood ghost stories.
Producers Steven Spielberg and Frank Marshall and director Tobe Hooper head the elite scream team of this spooktacular whose nerve-jangling effects include floating phantasms, the fiercest monster ever to pop out of a closet and an entire house collapsing into nothingness. Welcome to Home Sweet Haunted Home !!
