Poltergeist Episode 2: Why isn't the rest of the neighborhood haunted?

As part of a Halloween-themed special bonus show, we decided to break down the 1982 ghost classic, Poltergeist, in a five-part series. In part 2, we begin with Carol Anne once again crawling toward the static-filled television. This time, instead of voices, a ghostly hand emerges, first floating above the bed before slamming into the wall. The whole house shakes with the force of the paranormal energy now channeled into the walls. Beginning the next day, strange things start to happen, though without any initial sign of malevolence. It starts with utensils bending, chairs moving and the dog getting fixated on the burn mark on the wall from the night before. However, with the onset of a severe thunderstorm that spawns a tornado, Robbie is nearly taken by the tree outside while Carol Anne is pulled to the other side through a portal that opens in her bedroom closet. By the end of the episode, the Freeling family has contacted three paranormal investigators who agree to visit their home. They have no idea just how powerful this haunting really is.
