Fanbase Feature: 40th Anniversary Retrospective on ‘Poltergeist’ (1982)

As a special feature of The Fanbase Weekly podcast, the Fanbase Feature focuses on and celebrates a specific element of geek culture.


In this Fanbase Feature, The Fanbase Weekly co-host Bryant Dillon is joined by special guests David Accampo (writer - Fanbase Press' The Margins, Lost Angels), Corinna Bechko (writer - Avatar: Adapt or Die, Green Lantern: Earth One), and Don Aguillo (artist - Scout Comics' Rise, Fanbase Press' The Sequels, Todd McFarlane's Spawn & King Spawn, co-founder of In Hiatus Studios) to participate in a thorough discussion regarding Poltergeist (1982) in light of the film's 40th anniversary, with topics including the how the film holds up four decades later, the long debate over whether Steven Spielberg is the film's true director, the panelists' own feelings on the potential existence of poltergeists, and more. (Beware: SPOILERS for Poltergeist abound in this panel discussion!)
