First let me point out that Tobe Hooper directed the first Poltergeist movie (co-written by Steven Spielberg)... that in itself is enough reason to buy this 100% unusal sci-fi horror film t-shirt, this guy made The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, he created Leatherface!! That's 100% awesome.
Beyond that, the Poltergeist trilogy itself are pretty wicked-good horror flics... particularly the crazy demon preacher... Kane (Julian Beck)... he's one of the creepiest villains ever to hit the big screen... which is why we quoted him on this classic TV ghost tshirt (we tried to recreate his vocal mannerism on the shirt itself)... absolute creepy weirdness:
God is in, his holy temple!
Inadvertently, we discovered this shirt could also be taken from a socio-political standpoint... we all know The MTV generation was basically the last hurrah before the (neverending) Doom Generation, and this is likely attributable to our relentless television watching and video game habits.
Even the movie references this when the parapsychologists bring Tangina Barrons (Zelda Rubinstein - that freaky little lady with the funny voice) to the house, acting as a spiritual medium... she tells Diane there's a evil spirit in the television, speaking to Carol Anne: "it lies to her and tells her things only a child can understand. To her, it simply is another child. To us, it is the Beast."
So yeah, if you want to tell people this TV shirt is a comment on the psychological abduction of our children, that's cool... it works! Alternately, you can just be a scary movie fan and have other horror movie junkies adorn you with praise and recollection at one of the freakiest quotes (and images) in horror film history!
Either way, you get two tee shirts messages for the price of one...
whether you like it or not... since the ghosts are built-into the fabric... seriously.
