Poltergeist will go towards the light in 2015


Twentieth Century Fox has dated the upcoming Poltergeist remake/sequel for a February 13, 2015 theatrical release, giving horror fans plenty of time to let it all sink in. Details on the film itself are still pretty slim but from what we’ve seen throughout last year was that this one is most likely going to serve more as a sequel/standalone film, much like the approach that  Fede Alvarez took with the Evil Dead remake. Basically what that means is that we’ll be seeing new characters find themselves in a similar situation. That, to me, is probably the best way they could have gone about bringing Poltergeist back to the big screen because the original film is untouchable and in my opinion one of the most perfectly crafted horror films ever made.

The cast is being led by Jared Harris, Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie Dewitt which is honestly about as good as it gets. I’m excited to see both Harris and Rockwell share the screen together in a horror flick, and it’s for that reason that I’m holding onto hope for this one.

Dubbed a revisionist take on the original film, the new story centers on a family struggling to make ends meet that relocates to an outdated suburban home and is confronted by an angry spirit who kidnaps their youngest daughter and challenges them to band together to rescue her from the clutches of evil.

Saxon Sharbino, Kennedi Clements, Kyle Catlett and Jane Adams also star. Monster House helmer Gil Kenan is directing from a script by David Lindsay-Abaire with Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert producing through their Ghost House Pictures banner with Roy Lee. Hopefully we’ll be hearing more from this one very soon.

  1. Between the beauty that was Evil Dead and the horror (in a bad way) that was Carrie, it’s safe to say we have no fucking idea how this will come out. 😉

    1. It’s true. You really never know how these things will turn out until your sitting in front of it. There’s a chance it could be good so we’ll have to wait and see.

  2. I hope this is better than Carrie, what a waste of film, I loved poltergeist. Sam Rockwell is a great actor. I hope this movie won’t disappoint us.

    1. Yea, Carrie was pretty bad. Not a fan of that CGI mess at all. The cast for Poltergeist is pretty awesome which will be reason enough for me to check it out.
