If you thought the movie version of Poltergeist was creepy, that's nothing compared to how it was on set. During the film's finale, the production used actual human skeletons instead of props because it was cheaper to buy the real ones. And they wonder why this movie is cursed? This is just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which focuses on Poltergeist! All are welcome to watch!

Speaking of that infamous curse, two stars of the Poltergeist series were murdered following their appearances in the film. And young Carol Anne (Heather O'Rourke) died at the age of 12 after a misdiagnosis. O'Rourke, and her on-screen sister, are actually buried together at the same Hollywood cemetery.
