Just Like ‘Evil Dead,’ the New ‘Poltergeist’ Is A Sequel…




An update to our exclusive story posted yesterday regarding the plot details for the forthcoming Poltergeist “remake.”

Our friends at Moviehole.net reveal that the Gil Kenan-directed Sam Raimi-produced reboot – much like the Evil Dead remake – exists in the same world as the previous Poltergeist films. So while it is a ‘reboot’ of the franchise, it’s also somewhat of a sequel – taking place years after the Freeling’s were ran out of town.

They explain that, in one scene in the new film, the kids’ find some things behind the sliding panel in the attic. Yep, you guessed it – they find some of the Freeling’s possessions, intentionally left behind. There’s the Star Wars bed sheets (from Robbie’s room), a black-and-white TV set (why, of course!), and some Christmas decorations.

Although the new film may possess new characters and somewhat of a different storyline, all the “familiar beats” from the original Poltergeist films are in it. You’ll find more on that by clicking the link above.
