Fox 2000 Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures present POLTERGEIST, from legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi (“Spider-Man,” Evil Dead,” “The Grudge”) and director Gil Kenan (“Monster House”).

When terrifying apparitions escalate their attacks and hold the youngest daughter captive, the family must come together to rescue her before she disappears forever.

Kenan directs from a screenplay by Pulitzer Prize-winning writer David Lindsay-Abaire. The film is produced by Raimi and Rob Tapert, p.g.a. (“Evil Dead”) via Ghost House Pictures, along with Roy Lee, p.g.a. (“The Departed”). The film is executive produced by J.R. Young (“The Grudge 3”), Audrey Chon (“Changeling”), John Powers Middleton (“The LEGO® Movie”), and Becki Cross Trujillo (“Snitch”).

POLTERGEIST stars Sam Rockwell (“Moon”), Rosemarie DeWitt (“Rachel Getting Married”), Jared Harris (“Mad Men”) and Jane Adams (“Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”).

With suspenseful storytelling and jaw-dropping visuals, this electrifying take on a spine-chilling classic will haunt you from its early nightmarish moments to its exhilarating climax!

BatI love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: Silent Hill

  1. Witchfinder General 1968 could be remade as it would be interesting with modern special effects and CGI

  2. Re-Animator would be good so it could get a new generation of fans on board. Also.an update on the FX would be good.

  3. Doomwatch (1972) but brought up to date as we still have lots of environmental dangers to ward off (think of tsunamis and nuclear power stations, etc).

  4. doomwatch

  5. Not a horror film but I loved “Zulu” but have since found out it was so factually incorrect I would like to see it remade showing the true events. For a horror film I would like to see “Them” remade as it was one of the first horror films I ever saw and would greatly benefit from being modernised and the use of CGI.

  6. I used to be really scared of Slaughter High. I think that would be very popular if remade as it is has a simple slasher film plot. Bullied teen wreaks revenge on the bullies at school after one of there pranks leave him disfigured.

  7. I would like to see The Exorcist as it would be good to see the CGI they could use for it and I’d like to see a different spin on it.

  8. The Original The Exorcist just to see if they could match or even better the spider walk down the stairs

  9. I loved a horror movie called DEMONS when I was growing up, it’s an 80’s movie and some of the graphics were dodgy so a remake would be awesome 🙂

  10. The Blood on Satan’s Claw – it isn’t the best in its sub-genre, but with today’s effects could be remade to retell the plot much better.

  11. Amityville Horror – The book was much more scary and there was a map of the house in the book so you could imagine you were there!

  12. Hellraiser would be great with the new technology today

  13. I am legend, it didn’t go into the horror enough like the book did

  14. has to be doomwatch

  15. The hills have eyes.

  16. I don’t think I want to see any of them remade as they are usually a disappointment and not a patch on the original

  17. I would like to see Alien remade because of the film Prometheus just been made a new alien could be made to follow it on now that we have more movie technology.

  18. Susperia as it had a great effect on me. It could be made more frightening but keep the amazing music

  19. Pet sematary if it was remade properly it could be made a lot scarier.

  20. I’d love to see the exorcist remade. It was good but I’d like to see if they can make even more scarier 🙂

  21. Doomwatch

  22. blair witch 2. you wouldn’t even have to remake it, just release the original cut before it got mangled by the studio. the film that was released makes absolutely no sense, but if you look into it, there is a really good, clever film in there somewhere.

    or the howling 2, so we can pretend that the terrible original version of that film never happened.

  23. I’d love to see a Scream remake in modern times with more up-to-date activities and gruesome horror deaths!

  24. The Omen was a really good satanic thriller. New version could be really good. Maybe cast Nicholas Cage in the Gregory Peck role

  25. John Carpenter’s “They Live” . It’s a very entertaining film but would benefit greatly from modern special effects.

  26. Long shot here but I really think if given the time and attention the script and footage clearly demanded instead of being butchered in the editing room, Michael Mann’s ‘The Keep’ could be a great movie- if remade as a horror epic with a lot of emphasis on the Fantasy elements, particularly at this time I think it would finally do justice to a much beaten upon film

  27. I’d love to see a British version of the classic car horror movie ‘Christine’..I reckon we could do a great version rocking along to some old Rolling Stones hits…but maybe it would just turn in to a clone of Heartbeat…hehe! 😉

  28. IT ! the clown movie

  29. None of them. I hate remakes.

  30. Rosemary’s Baby, i think that could be *really* nasty.

  31. The Entity it was really good and as it was true scared the wits out of me

  32. The exorcist definitely as it was the ultimate scary movie of the decade with ambulances waiting outside the cinema when it was first released so it would be interesting to see what they could do with the special effects that have been developed since and also if unexplained incidents happen on set just like they did with the filming of the original

  33. the exorcist

  34. The LawnMower Man, that would be amazing with today’s graphics

  35. the shining

  36. The shinning

  37. I would like to see freddy vs jason remade, but properly, hear me out….. i think if it was done right the story could really work, and who doest want to see these to trying to kill each other again…. but properly and scary 🙂

  38. The Exorcist

  39. Prince of Darkness. The original had Donald Pleasance and it was brilliant.

  40. There are to many to choose from with todays technology etc, any classic horror from the 70’s early 80’s would be worth seeing again

  41. The House of Wax for the 3rd time – Just so that Paris Hilton isn’t the last memory of it.

  42. The tommyknockers – deserves a better version than the first film!

  43. Quatermass and the Pit with modern graphics and special effects it could be fantastic

  44. I am not sure it could be made any better, but Christine. It is still my favourite, I named all my vehicles after her.

  45. Does anyone remember a terrifying children’s tv series from nay years ago, called The Stone Tape? A real haunted house classic!

  46. IT

  47. The Birds

  48. The killer clowns from out of space.. Omg I loved that film pretty cheesy now but alot of people are scared of clowns these days and you could make them look very scary

  49. Deliverance

  50. The Exorcist – better special effects available now.

  51. The film of Carrie left a great impression with me

  52. hellraiser

  53. exorcist because I would like to see it set in 2015 xx

  54. Rosemarys baby, with all the special effects now days, could be scarier

  55. I don’t really like remakes as a rule ( especially the wicker man they destroyed that film) but I would like to see them give a shot at evil dead.

  56. Alligator. This film is actually a blast. Funny tone, great cast, some crazy carnage. It’s probably one of the best Jaws knock-offs you’ll ever find, thanks in no small part to the screenplay contributed by a youthful John Sayles. I just think we should have a lot more movies about mutated alligators who run amok in city settings. Plus I want to remake the infamous swimming pool scene by adding a slide.

  57. The changeling x was a well spooky film

  58. Phantasm would be great with new special effects.

  59. Jaws

  60. Chunky but with a life size adult doll with a baby size head and a soft cloth body. Its kept a live by a funny old woman.

  61. The Exorcist to see if they can better it

  62. Captain Kronos would benefit from new effects and fight choreography.

  63. Day of the Triffids because it was really scary when it came out but is now rather tame and needs spicing up!

  64. Another vote for I Am Legend. Do it properly – it’s a sad horror story, not an action film!

  65. Hellraiser would be a good one to re make! 🙂

  66. Rosemary’s Baby its great horror but quite old needs some refreshing x

  67. Candyman deserves a refresh!

  68. The Raven – could modern effects be any creepier than the original masterpiece?

  69. Wrong
    Turn, the first one!

  70. Tremors

  71. A lot of horror movies should not be remade – American Werewolf, Nosferatu, From Dusk til Dawn, any Hitchcock. But the one that should be remade is Ed Woods Plan 9 from Outer Space. It couldn’t be made worse….or could it?

  72. Braindead as id love to see how good all the gore would be with modern technology

  73. I’d love to see Paperhouse remade. It was the first horror film I ever saw and I’d love to see it have a modern twist.

  74. Pet cemetery

  75. The birds be great with the updated special effects

  76. ‘Switchblade Romance’. I think an English-language remake could definitely work, but the ending would have to be changed! Maybe it could be set in North Wales?

  77. Rosemarys baby with better special effects

  78. Mask of the red death by Edgar Allen Poe, I think Vincent Price was in it but with all the special effects these days it would be amazing!

  79. The blob, with todays CGI

  80. The Omen

  81. Id like children of the corn to be remade love the original and think it would be really great to see a more modern version,

  82. The Exorcist – make it even scarier!

  83. The Wishmaster or Army Of Darkness both amazing horrors.

  84. AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN PARIS – IMAGINE THE SPECIAL EFFECTS 3DTOO!!

  85. Nightmare on Elm Street

  86. Halloween

  87. Doomwatch!!

  88. They live 1988 has an excellent story that would be just right for an update with today’s special effects as the only thing that let the original 80s film down was a lack of effects

  89. It would have to be the exorcist. It could be even better with a modern twist to it.

  90. I would like to see HELLRAISER made with better effects.

  91. Nightmare on Elm Street. With all the CGI nowadays I think it could be really good

  92. I’d love to see some of the classic hammer horror movies remade!

  93. Jaws – using a more realistic shark!

  94. The exorcist

  95. I would love Stephen King’s It to be remade, constant rumours but nothing seems to materialise.

  96. Witchfinder General would be good

  97. The Shining, it’s one of my favourite books and I’d love to see it remade in a Travelodge!

  98. Lesbian Vampire Lovers…….Just because somebody should!

  99. the exorcist 🙂

  100. IT – although I would need several large cushions and people to come with me to see it as clowns freak me out

  101. Sometimes they come back

  102. The Shining, I thought it was scary years back, But I reckon if they made it again, would be even more scary.

  103. I’d like to see The Exorcist remade – I think it’s of it’s time, so a new version would be great.

  104. I’d love to see Chopping Mall remade with today’s effects bringing the Killbots to life. The brief appearance in Cabin in the Woods suggested it could be something really special!

  105. The Gorgon, because in the original, the Gorgon just looks like a ropey old bag, and not at all scary enough!

  106. the cube that b a great one to remake

  107. Nightmare on Elm Street was my all time favourite.

  108. Salem Lot cos the mini series did not hack it

  109. Hellraiser would be amazing with today’s special effects

  110. The hills have eyes.

  111. The exorcist

  112. the ring

  113. The Exorcist – it would be interesting to see if they could up the fear factor!

  114. Quatermass & the Pit because done properly it could become a real horror classic.
