A Ghost and His Gold
What is a poltergeist?
The word poltergeist is derived from the German for “loud ghost” or “noisy spirit”. A poltergeist is a type of spirit or ghost that can create physical disturbances in the real world such as making loud noises and moving objects or even destroying them. It is also believe in ghostlore, that poltergeists can pinch, bit, hit, and trip people, as well as being able to levitate objects and move them around.
The film, The Exorcist, is based on the ‘real-life’ haunting of a 13-year-old boy referred to as ‘Roland Doe’ in 1940. After the death of his aunt, Doe began to experience strange occurrences whereby his mattress would move, a mysterious liquid dripped from the walls of his bedroom, and scratching noises came from beneath the floor.
