First Look at Fox’s POLTERGEIST Remake

Fox Horror Thriller

20th Century Fox (via USA Today) have revealed the first images from the Poltergeist remake, and they look eerily similar to the eighties horror film.

Produced by Sam Raimi (The Evil Dead) and helmed by Monster House director Gil Kenan, the modernized take will follow Sam Rockwell and Rosemary Dewitt’s suburban family as they become threatened by a supernatural forced inside their new home.

“Whenever someone approaches material that’s so beloved, there’s a reflexive reaction to be worried. It’s a responsibility we take very seriously. We’re working to make a Poltergeist film that lives up to the original’s legacy,”

director Kenan had to say. (Too bad Hollywood doesn’t have the balls to bank on original scripts).

Take a look at the very first Poltergeist reboot images, including the iconic shot from the original film that everyone remembers.

Poltergeist comes to theaters July 24th, 2015 and stars Rockwell, DeWitt, Jared Harris, Nicholas Braun, Jane Adams, Saxon Sharbino, Kennedi Clements, and Kyle Catlett.

That friggin’ clown is back, are you prepared? Check back soon for the first trailer…to be hugely disappointed…I love Sam Rockwell, just kidding.
