Poltergeist: The movie was filmed on a lot in Hollywood and not a real neighborhood. Many of the corpses used in the film were indeed real corpses,
however, nothing out of the ordinary happened. The two actresses from the film who died were Heather O'Rourke (who died after Poltergeist III of a
rare heart disorder) and Dominique Dunn (killed by her boyfriend months after the film's release). However! Producers claim that when Dunn (the
oldest daughter) is standing outside of the house screaming "What's happening!" the man standing behind her is an unrecognized extra who wasn't
supposed to be there. No one remembers seeing him on set or during filming to be in the shot. Paranormal? Probably not. Freaky? Yes.
Three Men and Baby: Sorry folks, a good old fashioned case of Hollywood marketing. The "ghost" was first reported right before the sequel, Three
Men and a Little Lady, was released. The story was that the directors were rewatching the film with the actors before filming and the "ghost" was
noticed. In fact, the whole thing was a scheme to get a buzz going - it was hatched years before while filming the first film. Entertainment
industry has been doing stuff like this for years. Ever heard the song "Disco Inferno?" Apparently there was a mass murder in the recording
studio, that is why you hear a scream at one point - but not true at all. A classic case of "Buy the record and hear it!!!" - with Three Men it was
"Rent the video and see it!" Obviously the ploy worked, because twenty years later, people still talk about a movie that should have been forgotten
a long time ago and probably rose more cash for producers.
Scary Movie: Headlights reflecting off of the camera lens - called "lens flare" - happens all the time.
Wizard of Oz: I still don't get this one. Anyone who sees a hanging munchkin out of a bird is delusional.
