This line is spoken by Carol Anne , played by Heather O’Rourke, in the movie Poltergeist, directed by Tobe Hooper (1982). Still rating pretty high on the creepy scale, this quote is spoken by young Carol Anne Freeling in the flickering light of a seriously scary TV set.
Carol Anne Freeling : [burying the canary, Carol Anne says a prayer] Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep. Dana Freeling : [sarcastically] Oh brother!
” Poltergeist ” tells the story of a family who buys a haunted house that was built on top of a Native American burial ground. The plot of 1982 classic ” Poltergeist ” was based on the Hermann family of Long Island, New York, who claimed to be haunted by a poltergeist that made objects fly through their home.
It is an amazing movie with outstanding acting, Special effects, and storyline/plot. It is very violent and gory (in one scene, see above review) but most kids 12-13+ should be able to handle it.

Heather O’Rourke (aka Carol Anne, who said the famous line, “They’re heeere”) was incredibly young when she died of cardiac arrest and septic shock caused by a misdiagnosed intestinal issue. She died in February 1988 at 12, several months before the release of Poltergeist III, the final chapter in the original series.
Heather O’Rourke, who played Carol Anne in all three Poltergeist films, died on February 1, 1988 at the age of 12 due to complications from an acute bowel obstruction.
“When Insidious came out and was successful the story about the Warrens came to me and I was like, ‘Oh, my gosh, this is really cool,’” director James Wan told Entertainment Weekly in 2013. One thing I had never explored was the chance to tell a story that’s based on real-life characters, real-life people.
It’s a common question, but the answer is no, The Conjuring and Insidious franchises are not linked to each other. The only ‘link’ is James Wan who directed both the first two Conjuring movies and the Insidious films. Fun fact, Patrick Wilson starred in both the first two Insidious films and The Conjuring films.
Spielberg promptly cast her in the horror film Poltergeist (1982) as Carol Anne Freeling, and O’Rourke earned recognition for her performance.
|Died||February 1, 1988 (aged 12) San Diego, California, U.S.|
|Cause of death||Congenital stenosis of the intestine causing septic shock|

The Shining is not a horror movie that rests on the usual scares: giant monsters, jump scares, piles of corpses. There are a few of those things, but the most terrifying moments of The Shining are when almost nothing happens. But the key to The Shining’s terror is Kubrick’s full embrace of “the uncanny.”
