Poltergeists are ‘noisy ghosts.’ They have the ability to manipulate the physical environment. They can open windows and drawers. They can move chairs and push books off shelves. They can turn on bathtubs and turn off lights. They can slam doors and even start fires.
Poltergeist activity usually starts off mildly, causing occurrences that people mistake as coincidences. However, as time passes, the activity will intensify. Sometimes the poltergeist will leave on its own, but other times it will end with deadly consequences.
