Poltergeist

New this month Question: Why was only the Freelings' house sucked into the vortex? Since it was discovered that the developer only moved the headstones but left the bodies, shouldn't other houses that were also built over the cemetery have also been dragged in?

New this month Answer: It seems that the majority of the activity was focusing in on the Freeling house exclusively. It's not fully explained why they were the only house affected, but there are a number of possibilities. Possibly because it's where the highest concentration of spirits were at unrest. Possibly because it could be inferred that the Freelings moved in first given Steven was involved with the company that built the community, and thus they became the first targets. And possibly because they were trying to get to Carol-Anne since she was an easy target.

Question: What exactly is the red slime on the body of Carol Anne and her mother after they are rescued from the another dimension?

Chosen answer: Ectoplasm.

Question: What exactly did the ghosts want with Carol Anne?

Chosen answer: They were attracted to her life force. She was such a young child, that it was particularly strong within her.

Question: Why are the chairs stacked?

Chosen answer: The poltergeists wanted to let the Freeling family know (in a dramatic, yet harmless way) of their presence and abilities to not only move objects, but to arrange objects to signal the family they were dealing with an intelligent entity.

Mistakes

When the chair moves across the kitchen floor, Craig T. Nelson goes to investigate it (after it has stopped moving). He goes up to the chair and flips it over. If you look closely, Craig almost hits the camera with the chair's legs. You can tell this has happened because the camera moves up very quickly and Craig looks straight at the camera crew with very big guilty eyes. This is more easily visible on the widescreen version of the film.
