You know, in the 1982 film Poltergeist, at the very end, the whole You moved the cemetery, but you left the bodies, didn’t you? thing? That doesn’t make sense.
I mean, look at it: it’s a completed subdivision with fire hydrants, roads, and basements. There would have been a lot of construction, digging by a lot of different groups of people, from the water company to the electric company, not to mention the people putting in the houses and the swimming pools and whatnot.
You’re not going to cover up leaving the graves. Seriously, they would have plowed up a lot of people.
29 years after the film comes out, I’m suddenly bothered by this.
UPDATE: So I’ve heard that it makes perfect sense in California, where due to homes on slabs, corrupt contractors, and lack of a frost danger meaning they leave the utilities lying on the ground instead of burying them deeply, that Poltergeist is accurate.
I’ll broaden my point: That state where this 30-year-old movie was set doesn’t make sense.
