HOLLYWOOD—I’m a fan of remakes to a degree, especially when the writer and director chooses to take a classic in a new direction. In 1982, a little movie known as “Poltergeist” scared the crap out of audiences.
In 2015, a new version of that classic is about to hit the screen starring Rosemarie Dewitt, Sam Rockwell and some frightening creatures from another dimension. The movie is produced by horror icon Sam Raimi who is responsible for delivering new version of classics, “Evil Dead” and “The Grudge.”
Without spoiling too much, Maddie (Kennedi Clements) who is taken to another realm by supernatural spirits as her family fights to rescue her in the midst of dealing with some supernatural phenomenon that will have you second guessing going into the closet, playing with clowns and looking at the television late at night.
“Poltergeist” is set to arrive in theaters on July 24. Finally a horror flick for the summer. Check out the trailer, but be warned scares are certain!
