After Will Sampson's (Taylor in Poltergeist 2) death, Craig T. Nelson went to visit the gravesite on a reservation where he was buried. The sounds of the cicadas were overwhelming as Nelson remembers. As soon as he said the words, "Will, it's Craig.", the entire field went silent.

The haunting Julian Beck (who plays Kane) co-founded the famous "Living Theatre" with his wife Judith Malina in New York in 1946. Best known for its modern "avant-garde" drama which included involving the audience in improvisational interactive situations, as well as for its political activism in the 50's and 60's. Beck's Living Theater influenced many modern artists, including Jim Morrison who was well known for using its confrontational approach to the audience in his concerts.
