'Poltergeist' is a bland film that avoids committing any possible stupidity, but also lacks any kind of particularity beyond the aspects necessary for the action to take place today. [Full Review in Spanish]

It is a thousand leagues away from capturing a portion of the charisma that any of the members of the predecessor cast had. [Full Review in Spanish]

Otherwise, as far as horror remakes go, this ranks amongst Evil Dead and The Hills Have Eyes as one of the better ones.

Rockwell and DeWitt are solid and there's fresh blood in this reboot at first. Yet, the dependency on lazy scare tactics neuter this reboot, making you yearn for the original.

You can do a lot worse than the new Poltergeist film, but on every conceivable level you can do better by simply watching the original film again.

Everything is spelled out, so much so that it completely kills any tension that could have been built.

POLTERGEIST is truly lacking is the macabre and erratic behavior that made the 1980s a golden age in horror.

The Poltergeist remake is not likely to add anything to the filmic horror lexicon, but in terms of genre summer programming, it must be said that it's better than some of the original material currently out there.

Disappointing when it isn't mind-numbingly dull, the reboot of Poltergeist is a tedious, cynical failure of cinematic science.

It is just too much of a pill to swallow to follow these dumdums on their quest to save poor Maddie. Honestly, Maddie might be better off in the light.

Though Rockwell and DeWitt give the material their own likable spin, most of the story mechanics will be familiar to anyone who has seen the original Poltergeist.
August 24, 2018
Drowning in horror tropes and lacking the campy DIY looking ethic of the original that we all enjoyed, Poltergeist falls incredibly short of the success of 2013's Evil Dead remake and would have probably done better off as a re-release
August 21, 2018
Humor and quirky personalities make this remake a more enjoyable and welcomed reboot to the original.
August 21, 2018
A soulless remake that fails to scare.
December 12, 2017
... more superficial than moody. [Full review in Spanish]

Poltergeist is extremely dumb with characters whose life holds no importance to the viewer, but at the very least it never stops trying to conjure up some scares once the gears are set in motion
October 11, 2017
As is too often the case [the special effects are] treated as the only thing audiences care about.
September 20, 2017
While the movie ranks low on shock factor - there are hardly any spine-tingling moments - the cast deserves a thumbs-up for making their characters relatable.
September 21, 2016
I'm not a hardcore horror fan, so I can't say whether hardcore horror fans will like this movie. But I can say that I think Poltergeist has potential outside the group of people who normally see horror movies.
June 2, 2016
Poltergeist 2015 is too weak to stand up to the original.
