Poltergeist (1982)


This horror classic from Spielberg has a very young 5-year old Heather playing Carol Anne, an innocent child who unconsciously stirs spirits and an evil entity from the forgotten graveyard below her house. She is a highly intuitive child and shares an eerie and unexplained psychic connection to the spirit world. Unfortunately for her, Carol Anne's life force has attracted the attention of the restless souls, who engage her in small talk and pleasant conversation -- through the television!

Considered her signature performance.

Poltergeist III (1988)


Heather's last appearance as Carol Anne at age 11, and sadly, her last movie role; she died four months before the film was released. She gave her most in-depth performance of Carol Anne in this film. After her death, MGM was unsure and nervous about marketing the film using Heather's image, so they cut facial views of her from the trailer and designed a theatrical poster with no tagline. Only the back of Carol Anne is seen in the poster, as she looks up at the tall highrise. In fact, the ending was reshot after she died and a body double was used. Look closely at the very last scene in the film and you will notice that her face is not shown. People Magazine in June, 1988 said of Heather's performance: "O'Rourke's reactions are so authentic she compels belief; she seems to be the only one who realized that character integrity was the key to the first film's success. That is the mark of a true actress. She will be missed."
