* AnonymousAuthor: A notorious Hollywood subject. The identity of the one true director of this film is one of the great Hollywood [[UrbanLegends either-legends]] or [[OpenSecret barely-hidden-truths]], depending on whom you ask and what you read. Many sources, in particular Zelda Rubinstein, have openly stated that Hooper was actually little more than a stand-in on the set, and the film was, for all intents and purposes, directed by Creator/StevenSpielberg. [[http://www.poltergeist.poltergeistiii.com/really.html Here is probably the best summary and explanation of the whole issue.]]

Creator/HarlanEllison has denounced that story as "a rumor that time has proved to be utterly false and destructive to Hooper's reputation."

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: There are some hints during the film, stronger during the second half, that Dana goes on dates with guys and has sex with them, without her parents knowing: Just the day after they [[spoiler: recover Carol Anne from the other side of the closet]], Diane tells Dana that later, they'll go to a hotel, when she tells which one, Dana just goes like "oh, yes", and giving some fun smile, looking like she's daydreaming, letting us know that she knows it and that something special for her happened there and Diane saying "what is it?", or something like that. Then Dana changes subject and leaves and we don't know anything of her until the very end of the movie, when she gets out of the car screaming "WHAT'S GOING ON??!!". Look for her neck, to the left and to the right of it, you can see lovebites.

* BigWhy: Steve grabs his land-developer boss and screams at him for having relocated the headstones of the cemetery on which his haunted house was built, while leaving the bodies. His rant of accusation ends with a furious double example of this trope.
