Poltergeist (2015) Remake Trailer

From official Facebook Page
Yet another horror film has been re-made and due out this summer. Poltergeist (2015) is the remake of the original from 1982. Usually there can be some skepticism on whether or not a newer version will be any good but, Sam Raimi is attached to this one. Attached the way he was to the re-make of his own Evil Dead (2012) so we should reserve judgement.

Fans of the original film often asked where Carol-Ann was during most of the film with only dialogue and imagination left to scare ourselves on top of the 80's level puppet effects. Re-making a horror film like this one may add to the story details that weren't possible back then. With today's special effects this could be one re-make that improves on an original.

One thing that looks like it may bother some fans of the original, no Tangea. Remember the medium brought in to help, "make this house clear"? Instead Jared Harris of Mad Men and Fringe is playing the ghost hunter tasked to clean the house of evil. Possessed clown is in it though...possessed clown!

The first trailer released for the film should motivate any doubters to want to see what this remake looks like:
