    I came across this today. It's interesting. If he ends up doing the project I just hope he doesn't turn it into a gore fest film. I love Poltergeist for the slow burn, and the characterization and atmosphere. It really gets you to love the town, and you really feel for the characters when shit hits the fan. It'll be hard to recapture that but Raimi probably could if he tried hard enough. Either way it'll be interesting.

    Well hopefully if Raimi is doing a bad job, Spirlberg jumps in.

    I feel like casting will make or break it, they will probably do something stupid and cast ChloŽ Grace Moretz as Carrie Ann rather than get someone obscure and creepy like they should.

    You make a great point! Everyone is so focused on who is behind the camera when Poltergeist truly is the family. It doesn't matter who directs this if the wrong actors are cast for the family it will simply miss the mark.

    Also this is a perfect movie to remake with the overabundance of CGI. The original has a shitload of it to begin with. But that bad-ass tree better not be CGI.

    If Raimi is involved, then the movie will not be good.

    I agree, I just used her as an example. I also think she is a great actress but I don't think she is the right choice for every role. In "Let Me In" she just didn't bring the same vibe for me as the original movie.

    Agreed here, they could definitely do a lot with this.

    As I suspected, the recent news of Raimi directing was incorrect (again). The writer of the project, David Lindsay-Abaire, had this to say via his twitter: "Horse's Mouth here. I never said Raimi was directing. That would be awesome, but alas it's not."

    The more I think on this the more I feel that this is a waste of money to day. Quite simply the original has never aged and I just feel the money is better spent on something else.

    This doesn't interest me in the slightest and not because it's a remake. Sam Raimi is a one trick pony who's been riding on the coattails of Evil Dead his whole career.

    I agree completely. Horror fans hold him on a golden shelf over the films. Which I personally find a bit overrated.

    I haven't seen all of Raimi's work but I don't see him as a great director. I'd like to see someone with a good vision try this out. Someone like Cronenberg would be awesome for a flick like this.

    This is beneath Cronenberg and I bet you this turns into some Paranormal Activity type flick. Mark my words.

    Gil Kenan's upcoming remake of Tobe Hooper's 1981 classic POLTERGEIST is happening whether we want it to or not so read on folks for some new details! According to Bloody Disgusting, the upcoming remake will follow Eric Bowen and his family who, after he loses his job, relocates to a new town to start over. His daughter, Madison, is abducted, making him truly understand what’s important in life: family. In the new version, Eric’s wife, Amy, can communicate with the dead.

    There will be another new character in the mix as well who will be Carrigan Burke, a television personality who hosts "Haunted House Cleaners". The supernatural doesn’t scare this guy. Dr. Brooke Powell is Carrigan’s ex-wife who is a parapsychologist at a local university. Her team investigates the supernatural events surrounding the disappearance of the Bowen girl.

    Casting is currently underway and shooting is set to begin as early as September in Toronto, Canada. Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Roy Lee all produce with David Lindsay-Abaire listed at the main screenwriter although Juliet Snowden and Stiles White had previously worked on the script.

    Well, that's that. Even though I'm usually optimistic when it comes to remakes I can't say that I'm too excited for this one. The original flick is, in my opinion, the perfect horror film and one that is still pretty damn scary to this day. We've been getting so many paranormal flicks these days that this upcoming remake is going to have a hard time finding its own unique voice in the genre and for that reason I think this one is going to have a pretty big hill to climb.
