I couldn't find a thread devoted to this, but I noticed from the post here:
http://www.offthetelly.co.uk/blog/index.htm

...that there's a new documentary about the case on Channel 4 at the end of the month. With an interview with Janet! It probably won't change any minds either way, but should be interesting at the very least.

I personally wouldnt give this case the time of day. Its the biggest load of bunkem ever.

Over stimulated kids bouncing around on their mattresses - "OOOOH IT'S AN EVIL SPIRIT".

Mmmmmm. Rolling Eyes

Janet was interviewed last year on Jane Goldman Investigates, however on this upcoming show she will appear on-camera (and not hiding her face). And also it will include the last ever filmed interview with Maurice Grosse before he passed away.

Should be the most comprehensive doc on Enfield, and will be showing as part of Channel 4's "Occult week"

Thanks for the 'heads up'! Sounds fantastic. I have a copy of "This House I Haunted" and read it from cover to cover in one go - it usually takes me a week or so to totally devour a good book - and found it totally fascinating. Sure, the girls got caught out a few times, but the pillow on the roof et al?

Channel 4s "Occult Week" looks like it's gunna have a few gems!

Anyway "Interview With a Poltergeist" is on UK Channel 4 on January 24.

The weird thing is, I could have sworn we did have a thread at one point dedicated to the Enfield Poltergeist. Maybe it's wound up in the warehouse with the Ark... Shocked

I'll be sure to watch this, it's a very interesting case. Did anyone hear the tape recordings of 'fred' (?) speaking?

Yes. And it's 'just' Janet using her larinx (sp) to produce the FX. I can do it - but not for very long (it makes me sound really sexy)! But I certainly can't keep it up for long (stop it), not as long as she did!

There must be a downloady type thing online somewhere. I'll have a look.

I did a search, honest! It's mentioned in a few threads, but there's no sole Enfield Poltergeist one.

IIRC She also produced the voice with her mouth full of water and taped up (!)

Yep, that is what Grosse claimed.

There's a lot of info on the pages below, including sound clips of the voice:

Nope, there aren't any dedicated threads before this one. It is discussed a fair bit in a thread entitled Poltergeists, but I think it was more intended for general discussion.

In fairness it can be tricky to discuss polt cases in isolation. Some people nonetheless get a tad tetchy if you cross reference, for reasons best known unto themselves.
