What exactly is a Poltergeist? Well the official term been ?Noisy Ghost,? a poltergeist is basically a spirit which tends to have an impact on the physical world around them. This tends to be in the forms of banging on doors or walls, the moving of inanimate objects and in extreme circumstances, physical attacks on witnesses to the events.

While there has been no real scientific proof in the existence of poltergeists or any of their activity (unless you believe the TV programs like Most Haunted). Anyhow, activities from these entities (which are mainly meant to be the souls of people who have passed on) have existed all throughout history in folklore, etc. Yet unlike movies like Poltergeist, there has never been any claims of people been sucked into TV?s or houses sinking into the ground whilst petrified family attempt to scarper the sinking premises.

If you are ever living in a house which is been haunting by a poltergeist, I would suggest that you call in a psychic (one who can talk to spirits and cast them out) rather than just a priest, for mainly a psychic can talk to spirits as well as cast them out, while it seems that priests can only pray in the hope that the poltergeist would go away.

Hope this answers your question.

The word poltergeist means "noisy ghost." It is when strange disturbances occur that involve objects moving without explanation, loud noises, and/or physical attacks. There is much debate about what actually causes a poltergeist. Some people believe poltergeists are actually spirits. Others believe that a person can cause this activity without their knowledge with psychokinesis. That is a popular theory since poltergeist activity usually revolves around one person.

It depends on who you talk to, there is a theory that it is energy that comes from young people, usually girls that are getting ready to turn into teenagers. The second theory is that it is spirits that are restless or like to play jokes as many are not harmful, but those that are may be more demonish then ghostly.

The definition would be a supernatural being that is causing disturbances by phsyically moving or throwing things around. The Hollywood version of this would be the supernatural being taking over a persons body.

It is also a movie.
