So I’ve only ever seen one part of the film Poltergeist. When I was younger I tried to watch the first one, but my mother wouldn’t let me see it as she said it was too scary for me. Since then I have tried again and again to watch it, but each time I get interrupted and have only seen parts, and all out of order. Maybe one day I’ll actually see it the right way from start to finish.
The part I remember the most and is stuck in my mind is the scene with the little girl when the TV is going all crazy. That scene is pretty creepy. How calm the girl is, is just freeeeeaaaaaaky.
So I have been thinking about this film a lot as recently our TV has been acting really strange, and every time it starts flipping on and off, it makes me think of that scene.
The other day I turned off the TV and walked five steps away, when I could hear this talking noise, I turned around and the TV had turned itself back on. I thought it was really creepy, but just shrugged it off. I turned the TV off and watched it making sure it was off.
A few days later I was watching TV, but had to go and do something else so I picked up the remote and turned it off. My roommate came out of our room and started to say something to me, when the TV turned itself back on, and my cellphone started going off at the same time. Immediately my friend and I looked at each other
It was really strange, but we both laughed it off, and once again I didn’t think much of it.
A few days ago I decided I would stop using the remote and turn it off by hand, pressing the power button, to completely turn it off. I knew that there would be no way that it wouldn’t work this time.
I went and turned the TV off by hand and smugly walked back to me room. I knew I could outsmart it. I was almost in my room when I heard voices, again.
I turn around and the TV turned itself on. I went and turned it off again, stepped back from it and it turned itself on AGAIN!
I don’t really believe in poltergeists, but I don’t know what’s going on with our TV. It is acting pretty freaky.
Happy Terror Tuesday from our evil TV! More terror to come!
