Well as another day goes by another one of my favourite childhood movies gets the remake treatment. this time its the 80’s classic POLTERGEIST.
“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.”
Why do I get this odd feeling like this is some sort of shot for shot remake of the original similar to Psycho? From what I’m getting from that one scene and the shots below is that director Gil Keenan hasn’t changed anything. Carol Ann even looks like Heather O’Rourke from the original. seriously why not just re-release the original… we’ll wait for the full trailer. but those are alas my suspicions
