Poltergeist Trailer

Feb 6, 2015

Category: Entertainment

With its PG rating, strong touch from Steven Spielberg, plenty of scares, and a memorable performance by young Heather O’Rourke (rest in peace) as young Carol Anne, Poltergeist was a box office smash in 1982. And sure, there were sequels, but come on, you knew a reboot was coming at some point. Now, ahem, it’s here.

So, besides the girl’s hands now being pressed up against a 50” Samsung instead of a 27″ Zenith, what else is new? The debut trailer shows an expected bump in the effects-filled scares, as well as plenty of shared moments (evil clown doll) with the original. Director Gil Kenan knows creepy houses; he directed the family-thriller Monster House in 2006. And with Sam Raimi (Evil Dead) as producer, one can expect the limits of its PG-13 rating to be pushed. We’ll see if this one was worth resurrecting when Poltergeist creeps into theaters July 24.
