Did anyone else get notice in the mail about their loved ones graves being moved? The letter says they are moving a few sections.

Poltergeist (1982)
Trivia

The production crew used real human skeletons because it was cheaper to purchase them instead of plastic ones.

Steven Spielberg's premise for 'Poltergeist' was based on the history of Cheeseman Park in Denver, Colorado. The park was originally a cemetery, which was converted into a park during city beautification efforts in the early 20th century. The man hired to move the bodies scammed the city of Denver into overpaying him, and the city quickly ran out of funds to pay for moving the dead. With no money left in the coffers, the city decided to simply leave the remaining 'residents' buried in unmarked graves underneath the sod. The park was completed as scheduled, but supernatural occurrences have been reported ever since.

I doubt the people are going to care. They are dead but could you pick a worse crime-ridden hood to bury someone? I guess maybe if you hated the person that died. Stick em there and you never have to worry about visiting because that area is a dump.

Wow....I am speechless. Can you imagine the bones and skull of your Granny Am being used as a prop in a horror movie?
