Another horror movie remake? We know, we know. They are usually terrible. That’s why we were concerned when we first heard about this Poltergeist makeover. Why mess with a good thing? Because they know it will make money, of course.
The remake of the 1982 classic thriller/horror will most likely be one of the biggest horror films released this summer. And while we still don’t believe the remake can match the greatness of the original, the new trailer released this week is making us a little more excited about this film.
Of course, there are people who are going to hate this movie no matter what. Take one look at the YouTube comments and you will see what we mean. But if you watch this trailer with an open mind, you will see that it actually doesn’t look that bad.
Sam Raimi is the producer behind the film, which was directed by Gil Kenan. The film stars Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt, and Jared Harris. It’s scheduled to hit theaters July 24, 2015. You can check out the official plot summary and trailer down below.
“Legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi and director Gil Kenan reimagine and contemporize the classic tale about a family whose suburban home is invaded by angry spirits. When the terrifying apparitions escalate their attacks and take the youngest daughter, the family must come together to rescue her.”
