What do you call a remake of a classic horror, that's not quite a remake ? Poltergeist 2015 edition, that's what ! And personally I would like to thank them for making it 'not quite a remake' as I was about 30 or so mins into the film I realized I didn't feel like I was watching a film I'd seen before, sure they'd kept some of the old clichés, but lost some as well, replacing them with modern interpretations and it all just jelled together really well, so I felt like I was watching a new movie, in and of itself, and might I say, enjoying the hell out of it ! If you liked the original, you'll love this, if you were born after the original had its hey day, as such, you'll still love this, there's screams and creepy things, tender moments and a few laughs, and no sex, which will please all parents worldwide, while managing to disappoint teenage boys, also world wide. It's a fun ( but creepy ) family horror everyone can enjoy, if there is an award for best remake at the Oscars then this film should win hands down !
