The first film that 20th Century Fox and MGM actually produce together. Fox has handled international distribution for MGM since the early 2000s, as well as distributing MGM titles on Blu-ray and DVD since 2006, though the two studios have never actually collaborated for a film project outside of distribution.

I'd there was a remake of Jaws it would automatically be shunned by most shallow movie watchers that's why happened to many other remakes that actually happened like The omen, Psycho and now Poltergeist. If this movie was renamed it would of not been unfairly compared and the reviews would of been better.
Sam Rockwell was as entertaining as ever and even in a horror he has a way of putting a light on things. Not to get all that detailed Poltergeist has many scary moments and was well acted and written. I have no regrets spending a few bucks in seeing it at the movie theater. I prefer enjoying a movie for what it is instead of picking on every scene while comparing a totally different movie with the same name..come on people
