A strange physic disturbance affects the lives of an American family in their new home. In particular, this entity likes to play with the children but events are about to take a turn for the worse.
Some of you may be old enough to remember the original Poltergeist film directed by Tobe Hoper and produced by Steven Spielberg back in 1982. Sam Raimi’s (Spider-Man and Evil Dead trilogies) production company, Ghost House Pictures, has remade the movie, but of course to try and dodge the stigma of a remake. They’ve called version a re-imagining and a sequel despite the fact that the trailer seems to reveal all the major plot points of the film which are all very close to the original.
In fact I recommend you scroll down and watch the much better international trailer.
Title: Poltergeist | Release Date US: 24th July | UK: 31st July
Here’s the International trailer which I believe does a much better job and doesn’t reveal so much.
Legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi (“Spiderman,” “Evil Dead”, “The Grudge”) and director Gil Kenan (“Monster House”) contemporize the classic tale about a family whose suburban home is haunted by evil forces. When the terrifying apparitions escalate their attacks and hold the youngest daughter captive, the family must come together to rescue her before she disappears forever.
