When I heard that Poltergeist was getting a remake I was genuinely upset as I felt the original Poltergeist from 1982 was one of those unforgettable horror films.It not only succeeded in giving us a different take on the traditional ghost story but presented it in a way that was unique. This new incarnation looks to carve its own niche and will to use a healthy dose of creepy imagery and jump scares to accomplish the task. The trailer shows promise though so I am sure I’ll give it a shot. Poltergeist arrives in theaters in July.

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.[/toggle] [/toggles]
