Remade for a modern audience. Not bad, but the original's better.
When I first found out they were remaking Poltergeist I was horrified. This was the horror I grew up loving and basically compared any and all other horrors to. However, when I watched the trailer I was left thinking: "Okay - good trailer. Clown doll literally freaked me out. Maybe this is worth a try." Worth a try. That's what I'll say for this film. In no way do I think it is better than the original, however, I wasn't totally offended by it. To me, it was the same story just set in 2015, and completely made for a 2015 audience, if that makes sense? So incredibly tech-heavy, whether it was the products used in the film itself, or the CGI used to create the film. I was still entertained throughout, and creeped out by some things, so in its way it did its job. But, for now and forever I will always tell someone to watch the original over the remake. There is no contest in my eyes which one is the better Poltergeist film.
