Legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi and director Gil Kenan reimagine and contemporize the classic tale, Poltergeist, which is 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.

This is remake of the 80's horror movie of the same name, that launched two sequels and a series, now they are back for another haunting!

A young family are visited by ghosts in their home. At first the ghosts appear friendly, moving objects around the house to the amusement of everyone, then they turn nasty and start to terrorise the family before they "kidnap" the youngest daughter.

Director: Gil Kenan
Writer: David Lindsay-Abaire (screenplay)
Stars: Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt, Jared Harris

Editorial Review: “Theyre here,” - seeming almost whimsical at first, playing stack-the- chair games in the Freelings kitchen. Then things turn darker. A storm erupts, a tree attacks and little Carol Anne Freeling is whisked into a spectral void. As her family confronts horrors galore and fights to bring the youngster back, something else is here too: a new benchmark in Hollywood ghost stories. Producers Steven Spielberg and Frank Marshall and director Tobe Hooper head the elite scream team of this classic whose nerve-jangling effects include floating phantasms, the fiercest monster ever to pop out of a closet and an entire house collapsing into nothingness. Welcome to Home Sweet Haunted Home.
