Poltergeist Remake Releases New Teaser Trailer

PoltergeistremaketvThe Sam Rami produced remake gives us a new trailer (complete with cheesy voice-over)…

It has to be said that Poltergeist is one of the upcoming remakes which has really divided opinions amongst horror fans. The problem is that no matter how fun the new film may be, few people really believe that the original needs to be updated. But never fear, because the assembled cast and crew looks rather promising indeed…

First of all there’s Sam Raimi himself. The legendary director who brought the world films like The Evil Dead is one of the biggest reasons people have faith in this film. Then on top of Raimi we have Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt, Jared Harris, Saxon Sharbino, and Jane Adams heading up the cast with Kennedi Clements and Kyle Catlett playing the two young children.

So what do you think about the remake? Are you excited to see it, or think it’s a waste of time? Be sure to let me know after having watched the trailer below…

  1. Not excited for this one, really. What do you think about the original?

    1. To be honest it’s been a very long time since I saw it, but I have fond memories from when I was young. Don’t know how well it would hold up now with a re-watch.

      What about you?

      1. Haven’t seen it, actually!

        1. Fair enough!

  2. I’m pretty indifferent to this honestly. Never seen the original. I should probably get on that though….. Lol

    1. Haha! It does seem a little pointless as a remake but we shall see…

  3. I’m not excited about this at all. It just looks like every other horror movie.

    1. It does look reasonably standard… it’ll be interesting to see how it compares to the original though.

  4. I suppose you shouldn’t judge a film by its trailer but…isn’t this just a compilation of famous bits from the original?

    1. Yeah it looks like it’s going to be a fairly faithful remake!

  5. I’m ambivalent on this one, the original was just so effective I don’t see the need to do a remake.

    1. I know what you mean… it’ll be interesting to read the initial reviews.

      1. Definitely interesting to see the reception accorded to it.

        1. Yeah I’m hoping it will be good as I’m scheduled to interview Saxon Sharbino for the film. Not sure if that will definitely go ahead though.

          1. That sounds very interesting, you have some great interviews on here.

          2. Thanks! It may not go ahead though due to studios etc. The one with her sister for The Walking Dead did for example

          3. Either way, the interviews you have here are excellent.

          4. Cheers, they are good fun to do!
