UPDATE: Below you'll see a "teaser" (of sorts) that comes via POLTERGEIST's official Twitter page. Looks like we'll be getting a trailer in a couple days!

While the news that we were getting a remake of POLTERGEIST was bad enough, in October we learned that the film would be slapped with a PG-13 rating. Even worse was last month POLTERGEIST star Sam Rockwell called it "essentially a child abduction film" and that it's "more of a kids' movie". It doesn't seem that the odds are in our favor that this one will be for horror fans. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

Now USA Today has shared the first ever images from the Gil Keenan-directed film that will open in theaters on July 24, 2015. The reboot features a screenplay by Pulitzer Prize-winning dramatist David Lindsay-Abaire and is led onscreen by Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt as the parents.

Jared Harris, Saxon Sharbino, Nicholas Braun and Jane Adams also star in POLTERGEIST, which is produced by Sam Raimi and contemporizes the classic tale about…

...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. 

Check out the first images below.
