Just when you thought it was safe to open your closet, the first trailer for MGM’s remake of “Poltergeist” has arrived to traumatize you all over again. (Much like the original, viewers with a fear of clowns may want to skip the flick, too.)
The 3D reboot of the 1982 horror classic stars Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt and Jared Harris. It’s directed by Gil Kenan from a script by David Lindsay-Abaire. Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert are producing through their Ghost House Pictures banner along with Roy Lee. Nathan Kahane is exec producing.
The film follows the Bowen family, whose life is suddenly disrupted after a supernatural force takes over their home and begins terrorizing them.
“Poltergeist” hits theaters on July 24.
