What Sucks...The Reaper
Zelda Rubinstein, the “…this house is clean…” lady from Poltergeist, is the latest cast member from that cursed film to pass away. Clearly, if you were short, and worked on Poltergeist, you were going to die, it was just a matter of time.
As a blogger reporting her death am I required to say that we here at What Sucks wish Ms. Rubinstein luck as she “goes into the light”, although apparently, she should not expect “peace and serenity” there.
By the way, although this probably is NOT the time to bring this up, the house was NOT clean and we shouldn’t forget that in a crucial moment in the film (when Steven was pulling his wife through a closet), Ms. Rubinstein’s character became possessed and told the little girl that there was “peace and serenity in the light” and directed her to go into it, an obvious flip-flop from her previous, “anti-go-into-the-light” stance.
Zelda Rubinstein, RIP.
