‘Poltergeist’ Trailer Proves Remake Is Just As Terrifying As Original

This one is not for the timid! A new trailer for the upcoming ‘Poltergeist’ remake has just been released and, to be frank, it might make you pee your pants. Seriously.

“They’re here.” Are there two more horrifying words in the english language? Well, prepare to hear them in a whole new— and terrifying– light, because the Poltergeist remake is set to hit theaters on May 22. Based upon the original 1982 film, this remastered interpretation stays pretty true to the original– however, that iconic television is now a flatscreen. Duh. Buckle up and grab the hand of a loved one, because this two minutes is basically straight out of hell. Enjoy!

‘Poltergeist’ Remake Trailer

“I can’t find Maddy,” we hear the Bowen daughter say, clearly hysterical in this just released Poltergeist trailer.

Even if you’ve seen the original enough times to recite it by heart (if that’s you, you must be a pretty twisted individual but no judgment), this new adaptation is still certain to get your heartbeat racing at the speed of static sound.

For those of us who are less familiar with the classic horror flick, though, let’s refresh. When a family moves into a new home, they quickly learn that it is also occupied by some unidentified spirits. The other-realm-beings start off friendly, however, as we know that doesn’t last long.

‘It’s A Poltergeist’

Maddy, the family’s youngest daughter, is “kidnapped” by the ghostly presences, and the family has no other option but to call for backup.

“First things first, your daughter is here and she’s alive,” says Carrigan Burke (Jared Harris), a supernatural expert. “This development was built on a cemetery, but this isn’t just a few pissed off spirits– it’s a poltergeist.”

The film also stars Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt as the terrified parents desperate to save their daughter.
