The original ‘Poltergeist’ from 1982, co-written and produced by Steven Spielberg, is widely acclaimed as one of the best ever horror films.
The classic film told the story of a family who moved into a home in California, only to discover that the house is haunted and their daughter, taken by the spirit.
The Poltergeist 2015 stars Sam Rockwell (Justin Hammer in Iron Man 2), and is set to be released in the summer this year. Based on what we see from the trailer, it will follow the story of the original to a large extent. Included as well are modern elements such as that creepy smartphone moment.
Needless to say, this remake has got the huge reputation of the original to live up to, and to be entirely honest, we’re not expecting it to be as good. Of course, we’re hoping to be proven wrong.
