Season 2 of I Was There Too with Matt Gourley begins with a discussion of 1982’s Poltergeist, the 1st film in the IWTT Steven Spielberg Extravaganza! Martin Casella joins Matt to talk about his role as Dr. Marty Casey, the man who literally rips his own face off, scenes that didn’t make the final cut of the film, and his relationship with Steven Spielberg and what led to Spielberg himself being the hands that ultimately rip his own face off. Plus, Matt celebrates the life of his wonderful grandmother Eleanor Gourley in a segment called I Was There Circa 1942.
