Movie Review: Poltergeist (2015)

Remakes are a mixed bag with horror fans. Generally, most fans of the genre have a negative reaction. Hopefully, there are a few like myself that don’t mind a remake if new ideas are being injected into it or if the the new incarnation can improve on some weak spots. Since Sam Raimi is a producer on this new remake of Poltergeist, we’ll take the Evil Dead remake under consideration. I’ll be the first to admit that while I love the original Evil Dead, it has some issues – mainly pacing. I thought the remake did a great job by keeping the viciousness of the original, if not amping it up a bit more, as well as improving the story a bit as well as updating it for modern audiences. The reason why most genre fans hate remakes is that they feel it is a cash grab for an already established brand. »
