'Poltergeist' Clip and Infographic: What Is a Poltergeist?

3 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Dr. Claire Adams (Jane Adams) explains the differences between relatively-harmless ghosts and malevolent entities known as poltergeists in a new clip from MGM's Poltergeist remake. This scene shows Claire consulting with the Bowen family, Eric (Sam Rockwell), Amy (Rosemarie DeWitt), Kendra (Saxon Sharbino) and Griffin (Kyle Catlett), explaining that ghosts are normally "harmless apparitions" but poltergeists are violent. The end of this clip shows Amy asking if its possible that this poltergeist could have taken their youngest daughter, Madi (Kennedi Clements).

The remake was produced by legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi (Spider-Man, The Evil Dead, The Grudge) and directed by Gil Kenan (Monster House). This new version is a contemporary take the classic 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.

The First Clip From Poltergeist Is Here!

5 May 2015 9:13 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The closer we get to its release, the more giddy I become for Gil Kenan’s remake of the classic haunted hose movie, Poltergeist. It’s movie I loved growing up, and Kenan’s Monster House, where he made a kid’s cartoon genuinely creepy and scary, proved he’s the man for the job. Now, the first clip has come our way, turning the creep levels all the way up to eleven as the evil spirits terrorising the Bowen house begin to make their presence felt. Released: 22nd May Synopsis: Legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi (“Spiderman,” “Evil Dead”, “The Grudge”) and director Gil Kenan (“Monster House”) contemporize the classic 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. »

Dimensions Blur In New Poster For Gil Kenan’s Poltergeist Reboot

28 April 2015 10:13 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With little under a month until its release, the marketing campaign for 20th Century Fox’s modern Poltergeist retelling is beginning to plateau; after all, there’s only so much of a horror film you can tease before undercutting the element of surprise. But before Gil Kenan’s reboot looms into theaters, the studio has unveiled what is surely the last poster for the upcoming movie, showcasing the fine, neon-blue line between our world and the next.

Taking a slightly different approach to the seminal, Tobe Hooper classic from 1982, the Monster House director will introduce us to a young couple portrayed by Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt who soon unearth dark, supernatural forces beneath the idyllic exterior of the new suburban home. Said forces soon manifest themselves through various electrical equipment in the house – hence that iconic shot of hands pressed against the television set – and kidnap the pair’s youngest daughter. »

Ridley Scott’s The Martian Highlight of 20th Century Fox’s CinemaCon 2015 Event

25 April 2015 6:38 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Following the exciting presentation at CinemaCon last week, 20th Century Fox released some new details for their upcoming releases. Check out the official synopses along with some photos for all their 2015 and 2016 films.

Poltergeist Featurette: Sam Raimi and Gil Kenan Talk Modernizing the Classic

24 April 2015 5:25 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Back when Poltergeist came out in the 80s, I was afraid of trees coming through my bedroom window and being attacked by braces, but now it's all about phones glitching and toys lighting up when they're not supposed to. The latest trailer for Gil Kenan's Poltergeist remake does suggest that the new iteration will be very reminiscent of the original, but there's certainly a few modern twists in the mix as well. 20th Century Fox just unveiled a brand new behind-the-scene featurette in which Kenan and producer Sam Raimi discuss making the material accessible to a modern audience. While I do get the need to throw in iPhones and other new tech that we use on a regular basis, it's still the more old school scares, like the clown attack and that poor girl being yanked up the stairs, that are the most effective. Check out the new Poltergeist »

James Wan, Roy Lee Tackling The Entity Remake

20 April 2015 4:40 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though his spectacular work behind the camera on Furious 7 is sure to send countless blockbuster offers across his desk, James Wan is still keeping true to his bloodcurdling origins. The Insidious helmer will produce a remake of 1980s horror pic The Entity with the same creative team behind his 2013 horror hit The Conjuring.

Chad and Carey Hayes, who scripted The Conjuring and are also set to reteam with Wan in the same capacity when he directs next year’s The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist, will write the screenplay, working from novelist Frank De Felitta’s original script. Roy Lee, a major player in the horror world, is also attached as a producer.

The original Entity starred Barbara Hershey as Carla Moran, a single mother who was reportedly assaulted, both physically and sexually, by a supernatural presence. Ron Silver also starred as a doctor who believed Moran was abusing »

‘Five Nights At Freddy’s’ Is Getting A Movie

7 April 2015 9:28 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Five Nights At Freddy’S has been one of the biggest successes of independent gaming. The horror game sees players take on the role of a security guard at a children’s themed restaurant. While there they must check security footage and protect themselves from evil animatronics that wish to turn the player into one of their own kind. With a simple set-up, not much movement, increasing sense of dread, and insane jump scares, the game has provided players with endless hours of enjoyment as they force friends to play and record their reactions.

Now, as with all great successes, the concept is heading to Hollywood under the watchful eye of Warner Bros. Producing the effort will be Roy Lee, Seth Grahame-Smith, and David Katzenberg. Lee has produced hit animated films such as How To Train Your Dragon 2 and The Lego Movie, while his involvement with horror has spanned »

2 April 2015 12:45 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“I want you all to clear your minds. They already know what scares you.” It was effective when Tangina (Zelda Rubenstein) said it in 1982. It rattles the nerves again to hear it in the brand new trailer for the supernatural thriller, Poltergeist.

This summer, legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi (“Spiderman,” “Evil Dead”, “The Grudge”) and director Gil Kenan (“Monster House”) contemporize the classic tale about a suburban family’s fight to save their youngest daughter, when she is captured by the evil forces haunting their home.

Latest Trailer For Gil Kenan’s Poltergeist Retelling Is A Frightful Delight

2 April 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

20th Century Fox and MGM have unveiled the second full-length trailer for the studios forthcoming horror retelling of Tobe Hooper’s 1982 chiller, Poltergeist.

This time around, Monster House‘s Gil Kenan is in the director’s chair, and it’s understood that this modern incarnation will only use the original as a touching point, rather than simply cutting and pasting all of those effective haunted house tropes from thirty years ago. Mind you, Kenan’s reboot of-sorts will still be largely situated within the confinements of one old, haunted house.

Hoping to start a new chapter in their lives, it’s Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt young couple who move into said house, which effectively tips the first malevolent domino over and instigates a whole host of spine-chilling events. It’s not long before their daughter suddenly goes missing, abducted into the realm of all-things-evil, leaving the pair with no »

Poltergeist Delivers An Unsettling New Trailer

2 April 2015 8:13 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The new trailer for director Gil Kenan's (Monster House) poltergeist remake definitely brings the iconography of the classic horror movie to the plat ("They're Here!" and the eerie glow from the t.v. to name but two), but he also seems to be putting his own stamp on the material, delivering an unsettling modern horror with a distinct old school feel. Monster House may have been a kids movie, but Kenan's understanding of horror tropes and a genuinely creepy atmosphere delivered a pretty intense and scary experience. He doesn't seem to have lost his touch here, and while this remake probably won't reach the heights of the original Poltergeist, it should at least be worthy of the name. Released: 22nd May Synopsis: Legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi (“Spiderman,” “Evil Dead”, “The Grudge”) and director Gil Kenan (“Monster House”) contemporize the classic tale about a family whose suburban home is haunted by evil forces. »

New Poltergeist Trailer and Poster Ramp Up the Horror

2 April 2015 6:48 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

20th Century Fox and MGM have released a new Poltergeist trailer and poster for director Gil Kenan’s (Monster House) contemporary remake of the classic horror film. Produced by Sam Raimi, the redo stars Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt as parents trying to fend off a spiritual invasion and save their eight-year-old daughter (Kennedi Clements) from the evil forces trying to take her. This new trailer is certainly unsettling, and while it's unlikely the remake will match the effect of the original film, it at least looks like Kenan is making solid use of today's visual effects technology without using it as a crutch. Overall, though, the film doesn't look like it deviates from the plot of the original too heavily, and I'm most curious to see what significant changes (if any) are made in the update. Watch the new Poltergeist trailer below, followed by the terrifying new poster, and »
