[ # ] Why did they have to remake Poltergeist?
February 5th, 2015 under Stupid Sequels/Remakes

There are very few horror movies from the ’80s that are as scary now as the first time you saw them. There’s Poltergeist, American Werewolf in London and Nightmare on Elm Street to name a few, but yet there are schmucks in Hollywood who think they can remake them and make them scarier with CGI. I am here to tell you can’t.
Case in point, one of those schmucks decided to work his magic on the 1982 classic Poltergeist and today they released the trailer for it.
Now, instead of a television set, it is the closet that is talking to the girl whose name is no longer Carol Anne. They couldn’t even keep her name? What’s wrong with Carol Anne? Then one of the biggest nightmare inducing things about the original movie is the life-sized clown that terrorized Robbie. They shrunk him down to normal sized doll. Who is scared of something that is a 18″ long? No one. The one thing they did make bigger was the medium, gone is sweet little Tangina, and now in her place is some tall Englishman. I could go on but my blood is boiling.
If it was just the inaccuracies that were bothering me, I would maybe look over it but there is more. They have turned this movie into every other paranormal movie out there today. We have been seeing these tricks in all of those boring Paranormal Activity films, and the original Poltergeist was not heavy on the same old special effects that are plaguing horror movies today.
So instead of blowing $15 a ticket on July 17th to see it, just watch the original instead. It’s a whole lot cheaper and a million times better.
In the meantime, I will be hoping for a skeleton filled pool hole to swallow this movie up whole. Go into the light, Poltergeist movie. Go into the light!
