In this first clip eight-year-old daughter (Kennedi Clements) is speaking to her HD television set, which is displaying all static. Her brother enters the scene and asks what she’s doing. “They’re coming,” she replies. It’s not quite the same as “They’re here,” but it’s not the same movie, right?
This clip from Gil Kenan’s remake echoes one of the many classic scenes in Tobe Hooper and Steven Spielberg’s Poltergeist, in theaters May 22nd.
Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt, Saxon Sharbino and Jane Adams star in the modern Poltergeist, with Jared Harris playing Carrigan, a larger than life TV personality who left the world of academia behind to become the star host of basic cable TV show “Haunted House Cleaners.”
“Legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi (“Spiderman,” “Evil Dead”, “The Grudge”) and director Gil Kenan (“Monster House”) contemporize the classic tale about a family whose suburban home is haunted by evil forces. When the terrifying apparitions escalate their attacks and hold the youngest daughter captive, the family must come together to rescue her before she disappears forever.”
