Many posters may not remember these days, but after this movie, there was nothing creepier than the national anthem playing and the station shutting down.

I wonder, will the little girl this time around get sucked into her cell phone or tablet instead of a TV?

This is one of those that is in no need of a remake. The special effects have aged extremely well by the way.

Oh look, an unnecessary remake to a glorious movie.

My thoughts exactly. And most likely they will replace the deliberate pacing and setup of the original with a quick moving "story" that relies on jump scares rather than building up suspense and tension. Or worse, they'll go the Paranormal Activity route and try to make it a found-footage film. Either way, it's unnecessary and pointless.

THE ORIGINAL POLTERGEIST MOVIE IS A CLASSIC...THIS REMAKE IS VERY SAD.

Poltergeist does not need to be remade, I don't care who directs it, writes it, stars in it, or produces it, the first one is a classic piece of entertainment, don't fuck with it. Please visit my website at www.drowningindarkwater.com I talk about movies, literature, music, politics, religion, my battle with mental illness and addiction and I would love to hear from any and all of you

Totally unnecessary. The first movie was flawless. Besides they remade this last year....it was called Insidious. For those who didn't notice how much Insidious ripped off Poltergiest.

So flagged for stating an opinion? Good to know, it takes a pathetic person to take offense by what other people think about movies.
