The character actress went on to appear in the two “Poltergeist” sequels. The “Poltergeist” movie projects were eventually dubbed “cursed” due to the untimely deaths of some of its performers, particularly two of the three children of film parents Craig T. Nelson and JoBeth Williams. 22-year-old Dominique Dunne was slain in 1982 by a jealous ex-boyfriend only a few months after the first film’s release, and angelic little Heather O’Rourke, age 12, died of an intestinal obstruction just months before Poltergeist III (1988) made it to the screen.
