Another day, another trailer (or two) for the reboot of a movie you probably loved from the past. Case in point this time is Sam Raimi’s reboot of the Tobe Hooper classic Poltergeist.
To be fair, the reboot isn’t directed by Sam Raimi. The director is actually a guy named Gil Kenan, who’s known for films like Monster House and City of Ember. But since everyone knows Raimi’s name, especially in the horror world, it’s being touted as his film.
Don’t feel too bad for Kenan, though, we’re sure his check cleared and he does get directing credit on the actual film. Plus, we’re reasonably sure he did the job. He’s gonna be okay.
Anyway, the movie looks pretty scary, but also kinda like quite a few other horror movies of late. Still, that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
Check a couple trailer after the break. Look for Poltergeist, starring Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt and Jared Harris, to hit screens on July 24.
