Poltergeist director Gil Kenan moves on to Five Nights at Freddy's

The recently released remake of POLTERGEIST didn't make much of an impact, but it wasn't a failure, at this point having pulled in nearly $100 million at the worldwide box office. The director of that film, Gil Kenan, has now secured his next gig, one which will see him continuing to work within the horror genre: Warner Bros. has chosen him to helm the live action...

Poltergeist (Movie Review)

  PLOT: The Bowen family moves into a house that has been built over an old cemetery. Chaos ensues. You know what happens. REVIEW:  It shouldn't be seen as blasphemy that I liked the Ghost House-produced POLTERGEIST remake, but it probably will be. I get why, but I think the truth of the matter is we should actually be grateful when a remake of a beloved property is both...

Original Vs. Remake: Poltergeist

Although our last House on Haunted Hill Original Vs. Remake ended in a tie, the readers were not upset as I thought they might be. A great deal actually agreed that both films may be different in terms of tone, but still represent our horror genre very well! In fact, I think both versions would make for an outstanding double feature. For today's O vs. R, I am doing something for the...

Shadows creep around in new Poltergeist clip featuring Sam Rockwell

A new clip from Gil Kenan's remake of POLTERGEIST has made its way online, highlighting a spooky scene involving a mischievous shadow. It's not too bad, worth a look, although it's probably not the clip folks who have yet to be convinced this is a worthwhile undertaking are looking for.

Latest TV spot for Gil Kenan's Poltergeist ups the jump scare factor

Truth be told, I haven't really been sold on Gil Kenan's upcoming POLTERGEIST (I guess I'm just a Negative Nancy or something) and most of the trailers and TV spots haven't done much to convince me otherwise. However, we've just landed the latest TV spot, titled 'Music Box', and it certainly ups the jump scare factor. Is it effective enough to sway me to...

Electrifying new TV spot for Gil Kenan's Poltergeist, starring Sam Rockwell

Electricity. It's all around us. It powers the world we live in. But what if the technology you rely on most is no longer safe? What if it's hiding something sinister?

They're here! Poltergeist clip remakes classic scene from original

I'm sure many of us expect Gil Kenan's POLTERGEIST to be very "faithful" to the Tobe Hooper/Steven Spielberg original - if not a downright scene-for-scene remake. The first clip from the film, just released today, won't dissuade any such expectations. In the scene we watch a young girl speaking to mysterious beings via the family television set (updated to a flatscreen, natch)....

New TV spot for Gil Kenan's Poltergeist asks 'What are you afraid of?'

When the first trailer for Gil Kenan's upcoming POLTERGEIST arrived last month I wasn't too impressed. My issue with what I saw was that it looked to be a carbon copy remake of the original classic, but I don't wanna judge a book by its cover (or a film by its trailer), so I'll give it the benefit of the doubt until I see it for myself. I'm just hoping...
