Red curtain

Objects have been featured in many horror films. Sometimes they represent ordinary items that have been cursed, such as the Chucky Doll in Child’s Play, or the car in Christine. At other times, they are used as a conduit from the spirit world to ours, such as the TV set in Poltergeist, or the painting in Ghostbusters 2.
