MGM released a trio of “Poltergeist” titles during the ’80s. The first film was produced by Steven Spielberg and Frank Marshall and starred Craig T. Nelson and Jobeth Williams as parents terrorized by ghosts who communicate with their youngest daughter through the TV set.

Since it emerged two years from a prepackaged bankruptcy, MGM’s film business has been focused on co-financing projects such as “21 Jump Street” and mining its library for remakes, including “Carrie,” “Robocop,” “Death Wish” and “Ben-Hur.”
