Producer Sam Raimi is featured in a new Poltergeist featurette that shares new footage to go along with some interview bits. One of the more bizarre moments is when Raimi says he wanted to make something more accessible to modern audiences. I guess he means that kids won’t take the time to watch the original film?
In theaters May 22nd from Fox and MGM, Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt, Saxon Sharbino and Jane Adams star in the modern take, 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.”
Raimi reimagines and contemporizes the classic tale about a family whose suburban home is invaded by angry spirits. 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.
