Poltergeist: How Tobe Hooper Deconstructed the American Dream & Fueled My Childhood Nightmares

8 May 2015 5:19 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

This summer, a brand new vision of Poltergeist will arrive in theaters everywhere and terrify a whole new generation of fans. While I’m going to reserve my judgments on just how that version is going to fare until I see it on May 22nd, I thought this made for a perfect time to revisit Tobe Hooper’s original film, which has remained one of my favorite horror movies for over three decades and is still one of the greatest and most effective haunted house films of all time.

The first time I saw Poltergeist, I was only 5 years old and, suffice to say, my childhood was forever changed on that fateful day.

'Poltergeist' Poster: This Clown Will Scare You!

31 March 2015 12:48 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After a number of trailers and TV spots, it's quite clear that the iconic clown from the original 1982 horror classic Poltergeist is responsible for one of this remake's biggest scares. A new poster has arrived for the new haunted house thrill ride, and it showcases the not-so-funny doll cracking an evil grin before it leaps off the toy shelf with its cruel intentions. Don't be afraid, it's only a movie!

Legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi takes over from Steven Spielberg as producer on Poltergeist, with director Gil Kenan stepping in for original director Tobe Hooper. Together, they bring a contemporized spin on this legendary 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.

20th Century Fox and MGM will release Poltergeist this summer, »
