"This isn't just a few pissed off spirits." As far as horror remakes are concerned, Poltergeist doesn't look half-bad if the first trailer is any indicator. And now we get to see even more from the film that arrives next month with a second full trailer showing off even more of the haunted house terrorizing Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt and their kids. In addition, we also get a little bit more of Jared Harris as a paranormal investigator. There's hints of the classic scenes from the original, but with modern technology, it seems many of the elements have been amped up when it comes to the world that exists beyond ours.
Here's the latest trailer for Gil Kenan's Poltergeist from 20th Century Fox:
You can still watch the first trailer for Poltergeist right here.
Poltergeist is directed by Gil Kenan (Monster House) and written by David Lindsay-Abaire (Rise of the Guardians, Oz: The Great and Powerful). A remake of the classic horror film of the same name, this update from producer Sam Raimi follows a family whose suburban home is invaded by angry spirits. When the terrifying apparitions escalate their attacks and take the youngest daughter, the family must come together to rescue her. Sam Rockwell, Jared Harris, Rosemarie DeWitt, Saxon Sharbino, Jane Adams and eight-year-old Kennedi Clements star in the film which 20th Century Fox and MGM will release on May 22nd.
